Still not up to blogging but again this was a post I had prepared earlier in the month for posting . It's time again for another card over at the Christmas Card Club.
This time the theme has been set by Carol who is asking for
Penguins. If we didn't have a penguin we were allowed to use an alternate Christmas Bird. I didn't have any penguin stamps or digi's but I did have an old recycled card so I used that instead!
I used a silver card blank and matted with DP. by Dovercraft from their Back to Basics Christmas. Pack Old recycled card had a row of 5 penguins but I decided to cut it down to 3. Die cut using Spellbinders 'Majestic Elements ' Matted onto red card also by Dovercraft and Die cut using the same set. Greeting was salvaged from bottom of the card and matted onto the red. Raised up with 3d strip to give dimension.
Thank you for all your kind comments regarding my Mum. Each and every one has been much appreciated. Dad has now been told but how much he took in we don't know. He has not asked or talked about Mum since so hope that he has accepted it in one small part of his world. I wasn't going to post this as I still do not feel up to blogging but the card was made ages ago and the post had been sitting in my scheduled list. This is the card I made for my Dad for Father's Day.
SU card stock used for the base
I used an old recycled card for the image which I think he will enjoy looking at.
The letters were cut from the leftover SU card stock using
Sizzix Alphabet die 656133.
Picture die cut using Spellbinders 'Romantic Rectangle'
and mounted on white card.
I used my mini Hougie board to emboss the raised lines around the edges.
Finally managing to be linked up without the Internet dying on me every. 5mins. Though I still do not have my email working which links to blogger, can only see my reading list when it feels like it and some of your blogs appearing as a totally black screen but I am here!! Will be around you all to comment ASAP. Till then hugs Mrs A.
