I feel as if I have been away for a long time....not really, but it was a very busy weekend (again); my brother's stepdaughter got married and the reception was at his home, right behind mine, on our family's farm property. It was beautiful--and emotional--but maybe I'll share about that later. I have had this card partially completed, sitting on my desk, and I finally got enough energy to finish it. I was really just sort of fooling around....not something I'd want to enter in a contest of any sort, but kooky enough to send to a friend whose birthday is coming up soon!
This is one of those cool folding cards; you can see how to make it on SCS here; and you can see it unfolded here:
Here are a couple other views:
It really is a very cool-looking card! This birthday guy is so low-key, he'll need sunglasses for this thing! No glitter, though....that would be a no-no for him! The base is from some textured Pacific Point I discovered I hadn't used yet; added a mix and match of BG's Marrakesh and stamped some little birthday images from some inexpensive clear stamps in Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango, punched them out and mounted them. I am really annoyed with my SU punches--they are not punching cleanly, even after "sharpening" them on a soda can. Grrr....any hints?
Thanks for looking! Hopefully my mojo and energy will return!
