Morning ladies....

A video was made for today's post, using Windows 10.  After several cuts etc the first card was fully edited to a short video of 4 minutes but then 'we' (hubby was responsible I kid you not) lost it and it is now floating somewhere in the dark abyss of the new Windows 10 computer 

So without further ado here is card number 1.... apologies as it is a little blurred

It's a 5"x7" card, top folding.  The gloss card I stamped the image and one sentiment on was from the Tim Holtz packaging for tiny white flowers, I used those recently on a baby mini album

The image was stamped and heat embossed, the identical sentiments were only stamped

I added the black twine around the card and taped the end pieces to the back of the card then adhered it to the card base

I then stamped the second 'happy birthday' sentiment on the side of the card

I added white card to kraft card on the inside and stamped a short sentiment 


Our grandson has received an excellent school report, you may remember he and his mother relocated to Bournemouth two weeks before Christmas.  So we have very proud parents and grandparents as you can imagine

I've made him this card to add to a little parcel we're sending him

The base card came from one of my 'scrap' boxes, it had the 3 tags already on it but where the semi-circular dies are was a big splodge of white card

I used more scrap card to die cut the circles and glued them together.  The two sentiments were stamped, the one of the tag was stamped and heat embossed

I am going to write a note to Max on the inside of the card
