I Didn't Forget...

Welcome

This card was made for a family member who's birthday I really did not forget, but it occurred right at the time we were busy with the funeral and such things...  I think she may excuse it's late arrival.


I started with a card from a Prima Journaling pad, trimming off the top corners to make a tag. I mounted it offset onto a small piece of dark card, and sponged the other edges with ink. 


Before it was layered onto the base  I stapled two pieces of organza ribbon onto it.


I computer generated and printed the start of the sentiment onto a pale green vellum and gold embossed it, and attached to to the base with vellum tape.


The balance of the sentiment I printed inside the card.
The finishing touches were the green rhinestones.

The last few days I have found very hard, so please excuse me if I have not visited you recently.

Gorgeous card and I love the sentiment. I may have to borrow the idea... that's so much better than saying 'I forgot'or 'I'm late'!

Neet said...

I love this card and am amazed at the gold embossing on the front. Do you have a laser printer? m I have never tried printing and then embossing but I only have an inkjet so am put off somewhat.
You really are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so pleased to see you posting. The last few weeks must have been very hard for you - I just hope your card making and blogging helps pass the time and allows you to drift off into a quiet little world of your own.
Sending Gentle Hugs & Blessings
Neet xx
