I have used one of my favourite fabrics from my stash. I have been an avid patchworker/quilter and have lot of beautiful fabrics I just can't get rid of. I have the hope that I one day will have the time to make something with all of my treasures! :) And look, now I have used a small piece of one of them! And it goes perfectly with my hÄnglar & stÄnglar-stamp "Jon Blund". I have coloured in the image using a mix of Twinkling H20 and Distress Ink. I have cut out the image and put foampads underneath. I have put a lot of shiny stars on the fabric and they blend in with the stars already there, but they are a bit more shiny in real life. The number and letters are QuicKutz-alphabet, punched out from a golden hologram-paper. I have put two layers of Diamond Glaze on top to make them more 3D.
I had this feeling that something was missing on the front of the card, but it wasn't until I cropped the photo that I realized what it was. I have forgotten to distress the edges of the card!! I might go back and do that before I send it to my nephew.Close-up of the letters. You can see the hologram-stars on the golden paper through the diamond glaze layers.
The insides. Designpaper from Karen Foster. Text from Papirgleder. The letters "Leo" are stamped with an clearstamp-alphabet i won in Karin's blog candy during last summer (Thank you, Karin).
My boys were so happy this morning when they realized that it's Friday! Since it's getting darker every morning now it's also getting harder to get out of bed. But then again, it's strange that on Saturday and Sunday they haven't got any problems getting out of bed at the same time as the rest of the week!! Without me dragging them out!!!
It is warmer today than it has been lately. And it is cloudy and grey. But as long as I don't have to cover up with rainclothes I'm happy!
I hope you all have a nice day! Take care!
Hugs, Kristin :)
