Hello there my lovely followers - its great to have you here on this cool, rainy day! I'm actually quite pleased its raining as I've been able to stay indoors and play without feeling a bit guilty! I joined up to Astrid's ICAD swap and this is my first card and holder which has now been received so I can show it here. The second one is on its way to Germany so will appear at a later date. Great idea Astrid, I really enjoyed making these.
This is the front and I don't know how I did it but each time I managed to get the opening on the wrong side!! I must have dyslexic fingers I reckon but I was still pleased with the way it turned out. Isn't that bird just gorgeous? Some lovely old papers I managed to use on this and the edge was cut with a TH on the edge scroll die then rubbed with several colours of gilding wax for a metallic look. Here's the back of the cover:
The inside was kept fairly simple with a little pocket to hold the card but again using those lovely papers I've had for such a long time:
And that's it. Thanks for visiting and I hope you are having a better day weatherwise but if not, enjoying some crafting time like me. Hugs, Margie xx
