3 days in a row!

Wow!  Look at me, posting 3 days in a row!  Just thought I'd put up the card I've made for the next wedding.  In fairness, I must say that I started out copying a sample from the Impression Obsession booth
at a convention.  But, as usual I didn't have all of the exact supplies they did and I didn't want certain parts
of their design, so this is what I came up with instead.  Similar but not exactly the same.  Using that metallic
foil paper, not all of the layer shows up in the photo.  The top edge kind of disappears and one side of the
bow looks larger than the other, but it really isn't.

found a photo of my first box card!

I just found this photo of the first box card that I ever made!  I think I mentioned in my last post that each
box card I make, I seem to add more embellishments to it.  If you look at the two that I posted yesterday, this one is very un-embellished although at the time I only thought it was a little underembellished.   I forgot that I used teh decorative paper on the inside layers too!  That kind of makes up for the missing embellishments.  LOL

Just checking in and sharing a little

Well, I'm back again.  Maybe I'll try posting once every 4 months! LOL  Summer is starting to hit here in Michigan.  The weather is beautiful so far and I hope to open the pool tomorrow.

I've made a couple of the new box cards that seem to be all the rage.  I'll include a couple of photos for your viewing pleasure.  One of the things that I am noticing is that I seem to add a little bit more to each successive box card that I make so I wonder what they will look like by the time I get to the 10th or 15th one?  LOL

Love the way these cards fold up and fit in a regular envelope.  I hope to try making a little larger one soon.
Happy Memorial Day everyone and please appreciate & pray for all the Veteran's that have died for us and our country.
