Well, if Cindy's teapot this week wasn't the best for giving me a card for my nephew! I was just going to dig one out of my stash, but this one has a note inside saying that although I can't pull rabbits out hats I am sure he can change the money inside into something he'd like.
Last night when I made it I was missing my cool after a head-wrecking day in work, and batteries to take a flash photo to show off the little stars. What's really missing from the card, of course, is the deck of playing cards. Oh, now I remember, I sent them to Anne, LOL...
A2 black base. White border drawn around the largest Labels die. Red felt tablecloth cut with Nestabilities, stitched around the edge and snaps added. I used a piece of double-sided self-adhesive to adhere it to the base. Note to self - next time, stick felt to adhesive sheet BEFORE cutting...
The main panel is a little beaded rabbit in a hat that took me two goes to get right even though it said suitable for beginners, and I had to adapt it a bit. The background sparkles is from Trees Three stamped with silver and embossed with clear EP. The little trestle table is an offcut from the photo-corners punch. Edges sponged with blue and yellow. I added little silver stars and wrote the sentiment. And then took about fifty photos using four different backgrounds. There must have been at least one good one in there, but it disappeared too.
Glad you made it back safely, Cindy. I can't imagine driving those distances - Ireland is only just over 300 miles from top to bottom.
