All for me not posting any cards for the next few days.

Here is the start of the card for the 60th birthday - bear in mind its not finished yet. I have just finished putting it together and inked up the edges. Now all i have to do is find a nice birthday verse to put inside and some small embellishments, make the box and it will be finished.

The paper is by Papermania - Silk Screened Paper Gold Ornate Metallic. I have used a 12 x 12 sheet to make the card and also some beige Bazzill Card for the accordian bit. I used the paper to cover the bazzill card on the inside. The ribbon I have had for ages and I think it really goes with the paper.

The size of the front and back cover is 11cm deep by 8.5cm wide. And the inside accordian is 10cm deep by 7.5cm wide. That gives me 4 pages to add the verse to.

The only main issue I had using this paper was that the gold rubs off!!! Dont know the reason for this - has it got to do with it being Silk Screened? Has anyone else had this problem?


Sorry for not posting - but I have been busy trying to sort out my Bazzill card and my 12 x 12 papers. I am slowly getting there but i need to go out tomorrow and buy another folder to put my papers into.

I have also started on a birthday card for the 2nd card order i got. The lady wants a card for her Mum as its her 60th. So I am doing an accordian book style card. So hopefully within the next few days i will have some pictures to show you.

Plus AVIE is 5 tomorrow.
I really can't believe that time has passed so quickly. But that also means I haven't worked for 5 years as well. I took voluntary redundancy when I was pregnant with her as I knew that I wasn't going to go back to work. I have been looking at getting a job doing nights - so hubby can have them in the evening and I can be there for the kids during the day. But so far nothing!
