I was going to preface this post with a few photos of a two week trip I recently took to the South Island
(of New Zealand), but my phone camera and my computer are not cooperating and I cannot seem to download them to share.... I will have to talk nicely to my son in law....
I will say I had a wonderful time and have some awesome photos to share once I can get them downloaded.
I would like to welcome Kiwi Card House as my newest follower - they are a small Kiwi company specializing in vintage images, and their Facebook page is here
This is another melted wax crayon card - it was the first one I made using the technique
I used the back of a piece of card that I had previously printed on, and did not need... being thrifty with my supplies, I repurposed it - not the best idea as the melted crayon made the card translucent, and the print did show through under the light yellow coloured centre.
A strategically placed gold die cut disguised it nicely! (The die was a magazine freebie)
I loved the rough texture on this background, and as I had this in mind when I made it, I did not try to smooth it off.
The card was made for a 'seventy something' gent, so the second part of the sentiment seemed rather appropriate.
Both parts are from another magazine freebie, and were embossed using WOW glitter gold ep.
The inside was finished with a wee snippet of the gold paper that I had used for the die cut.
