From all of us.....
Hope you are enjoying a good weekend. This is a project that I made for a friend. It was her parents 40th wedding anniversary and she was wanting to create some kind of card that was created by the 7 grand children, however the ages range between 10 and 2 so she was wondering how it would work.....I suggested that she could put 7 envelopes together and make a little accordion book that had 7 pockets and then each child could make something to put in their own pocket. ( what they did in the end was each child drew round their own hand and then decorated it)......She thought that was a great idea and asked me to make it....
This is what I came up with.......Its huge I tried to take a photo of it all laid out flat but it takes up half the living room and even with me stood on the chair with me holding the camera against the ceiling I couldn't get it all in so I gave up....
The main image is an "anitas" stamp and the heart&flower flourish is "habico" I also used my little "kanban" stamp....and embossed some paper using the cuttlebug script.....the project is quite bulky so I also made a little presentation box too......
The party was last night, so I can finally show it here.
