This weather is so frustrating, it's so cold and the wind is really gusting today (Wednesday)!! I hope you are all dry, warm and safe.
I thought it would be fun to maybe start looking back at some of our old cards, I will do it Thursdays and call it 'Throwback Thursday', just for fun and it won't necessarily be every week. I think it's fun to see how card designs have changed.
Today's 'Throwback' card was from this time (Jan 26) 2015!, I don't actually think it's dated that much design wise, I would still be happy to receive a card similar to this design today.
Here is the description hi wrote back then:
" I cut Majestic Labels twenty Five in coconut white card and used foam pads to stick it onto some American crafts pink card, leaving a small border of pink showing and Matt it on to some more coconut white card, the centre of the cards is simply the centre section of the die, with a Justrite sentiment stamped on and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I mounted this onto pink card with film pads for dimension.I arranged some pink and white flowers on either side of the centre piece with some foliage to lift the flowers from the background, I then simply added a few pink pearl to finish the corners."
One of you may well have received it as a birthday card! I still have the die, but haven't used it for a year or more, I wonder why we do that ? I love the die, the shape the size and the fact that you can make fairly quick and easy cards with it, it's such a pretty design you only need a sentiment and a few embellishments.
It has got me thinking about doing another challenge, encouraging you to dig back through your die collection, another die that I absolutely loved and used loads at the time I bought it was Sue Wilson's 'Lyra' die, I have loads of cards made with it, so many different occasions too, but again I haven't used it for years.
So, do you all fancy an 'old die' challenge?
We spent the day yesterday cleaning and clearing the old house, it's taking longer because bi want to sort through things so that we don't end up with tons of stuff that we don't need/use at the new house, I am actually shocked at the amount of stuff there is! It's quite therapeutic throwing out old and useless stuff, I feel that we have achieved something, it's just too easy to throw it all in a box and take it with you!
I hope to get back to 'normal' posts by next week, depending on how accessible all my craft stuff is, so please stick with me, I really appreciate your patience my lovelies xx
Have a fantastic Thursday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
