Thank you for calling in - warning - this is a photo heavy post!!
About a month ago DH and I had to go to our 'base' hospital for a procedure that is not performed locally, and as he was to be there overnight, I needed accommodation, and the wonderful Carol of CarolG ... Creates so very graciously opened her home to (a rather stressed) me at short notice.
That evening we had some crafty time together, and made the shell of this box card - my first.
This is the card closed - the belly band was a sentiment sticker I added from my stash, as this card was for DH's birthday.
Here is the card opened - the vehicle die cuts were from Carol too, and I painted them blue, as those were the colours of the associated vehicles in DH's life. I mounted them on silver card stock to strengthen the die cuts and to give them shiny windows and 'chrome' bumpers and trim.
This gives a true photo of the sheen!!
The balloons were punched from glitter card, and attached with white wire.
These next photos are the side panels - each one made up part of the 'story' I told with the card.
DH loved the card, and kept pointing it out to the visitors we had that day.
