Hello everyone I hope you are all well.
Its getting really chilly here in the UK, proper scraping of the car windscreen time!!
When its chilly outside I don't feel as guilty about squirrelling myself away in my craft room (the smallest room in the house and therefore the warmest!!).
A friend is 50 in a couple of weeks so I thought I would make her a special card.
The card is stamped in versamark to create the watermark effect and I used similar pieces from my scraps box (seriously...HOW does that box hold this much?!) to stamp the saying and mount it. I used fabric dyes to dye a tag and then using my tiny attacher to staple some leftover ribbon (it was really thick ribbon, but only a couple of inches long, so I cut in half along the length so it fitted through the hole in the tag easier).
Ferreting around in my box I also found a third of a metal tube (I know, I literally chuck everything in this box, leftover fabric scraps, off cuts of paper...basically anything too small to put away...but as we know a lot of us crafters are hoarders, so I CANNOT chuck out something that can be used again....those of you who know me from WOYWW crops will know I am the one who actually went through the bins on everyones desk...well, other peoples rubbish is SO much more interesting!!).
With this tube I flattened it out and dyed it with alcohol inks before die cutting leaves out of it.
There you have it, a card for next to nothing (shh...don't tell the recipient it was so cheap!!).
I am entering this in the playground at the snippets challenge here
