A wedding congratulation with Tim Holtz Crazy Birds. The inside of the card says "Nyd dagen - den bliver ikke genudsendt" (enjoy this day - there are no re-runs)
I just had the lovely news that my best friends' oldest daughter is getting married this Saturday, no big celebration, understandably as they only just had a baby daughter - still I want to send them my warmest thoughts together with some flowers.
A bag full of...... and a note to the recipient using a bottle tag.
As guest at a birthday party I wanted to bring some Jerusalem artichokes along for the host and hostess. I didn't have time for a regular card so I grabbed a bottle tag from my stash and it fitted nicely around the neck of the paper bag. I will have to do more bottle tags................
Time for two....... with Mama Elephant honey bunnies. Translation of the Danish text is: Time for each other is a good time. My first attempt with the speech bubble and computer text brought to life by the cute bunnies.
Whenever I get new stamps, I always try them out on a piece of scrap paper, usually just only just to through them out. The birds were just too cute to end up in the trash bin. The try-outs were coloured and turned into a card with a small handwritten 'tillykke' Danish for congrats.
Sending smiles.......................... with Mama Elephant and Kaboks die When my daughter-in-law asked me for a card for a baby christening, I did a few variations, practising for all of the baby cards to come. With a little dimension behind the 'smile', the blue paper is actually showing behind the die cut smile.
Tommelise for the HCA Festivals 2015.......... water coloured and in a Sizzix flip card
I can never say no to my daughter according to my husband, and when she asked me to do 200 individually water-coloured flip cards, I didn't immediately say yes, but it only took her a few weeks to win me over. Tommelise, a well known H.C Andersen character, was chosen as the cards were a sponsor greeting for the HCA Festivals sponsors and put in the sponsor gift boxes distributed in connection with the H.C. Andersen Festivals in Odense during week 34/2015.
200 cards are quite a lot, I dare say, and next time I may say NO!!
Celebrating a baby girl................................ with Tim Holtz shadow emboss and Mama Elephant baby stamp/die The second daughter of my very close friend gave birth to a baby girl, and of course I had to make a special card for these happy parents as well. This is the second of many baby cards, as more babies are coming
Celebrating baby boy..................... with Paper Smooches and MFT Baby die The daughter of my very close friend gave birth to a baby boy, and of course I had to make a special card for the happy parents. This is actually the first of many baby cards, as more babies are coming.
From the heart...................... With Washi tape in coordinating colours and heart punches. This is one of the designs that I do quite often as it only requires a small top folded paper, a few heart punches and some coordinated washi tape. The stamp is the Danish for: from the heart I always have a few of these cards in my stash, different colours of course, so they match either the bouquet or the gift wrapping.
