This couple share March birthdays... so I decided I'd make them a little something to stick in the mail. One of my thoughts when designing this die was that it could be a card AND an altered project all in one. Sometimes we spend a lot of time and put a lot of love into creating a card... this is a great way for the person who receives it to be able to display it. Because once you open it, it stand all on it's own. Not only that, but it has lot of space to create. Use a photo, an image, stamp, write, add a poem or saying, or even build a little diorama. ( you can even add a piece of transparency to the opening as fill it with candies ect..)
Here is what the die layout looks like. AccuCut Die VC101CSJ by Vicki Chrisman
I decided to use a photo of them in the center. It's my nephew Ryan and his girl Erin.
I cut the tab and used it as an embellishment at the top of both the left an right sides, but it is also a closer for the card if you want it to be. In this case I used a ribbon for that.
Can you tell by the colors I'm using lately, that I'm really ready for SPRING??
The stamp is from Crafty Secrets.
What's my week been like? Well....
I attended Kate's first Open House as a teacher! Oh... she loves her job. Fun to see her so excited about teaching, and loved getting to see her classroom too. We had a great time!
We celebrated our 33 anniversary. Just got away for the day and night. Took a drive and out to dinner. Ending up staying over in Iowa.
Accordian Fold die from AccuCut certainly made things much easier!
And here's what went on today. Lasagna making , and lots of it. One for dinner, one for friends, and one for the freezer! Done!
I don't mind that part of it, it's the cleaning up the kitchen after, that I dread. But it's all done now. Feels good!
I hope all of you have been having a great week!
Thanks for taking time to stop by, I love it when you do :)
