I'm back with a couple projects today...one being my card for the nursing home. I had hoped to post it, along with the "kits" all made up and ready to go yesterday, but it took every last moment I had to prepare it after I dropped the kids off at school. I've never waited 'til the "day of" to prepare...YIKES...can't do THAT again! I didn't even have a little completed "demo" card for them to see...they're always anxious to see what it's going to look like. I told them it was "mystery card" day...
The embellishment are slightly different on this one than what I prepared for them. I have stitched these hearts one on top of the other...didn't have time to do that for 20 kits. I had hearts with punched flowers and pearls for them. They all seemed very happy with their finished projects. I so wish I could take photo's of them with their cards to share, but that's a no-no. The images on the cards were from Bety, HERE.
I had hoped to mix up the give-away items a little, but this memo board was all but complete, so I'll share it today after the last two very full days... It's a much different style than the last...
I made my first of these for my niece a couple weeks ago using a combinations of black rub-ons and die cuts (my favorite so far...wish I had more of what I used) with a Hobby Lobby frame. At 1/2 price it was $7.50--not bad at all for a small gift item. The wonderful thing about those frames, or many of them, is that the glass is put in at the outer-most edge of the frame, creating a shadow-box effect. You can use more dimensional items in those, which looks really cool, if you want to get creative. I used some K&Co. die cuts in this one--several vellum ones in the pack seemed to go together well.
Hope you like it! Remember...it could be yours! Just leave a comment if you're interested, and I'll announce on the 20th.
Thanks for popping in!! Have a great day!! Meredith...I hope you're enjoying all those Papertrey festivities for me!!
