50th Wedding Anniversary

I feel so bad that I haven't posted anything on my blog for a long time. Been sick, spent some time in the hospital (migraine) and well, time flies by....

Well, my parents-in-law is celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary tomorrow and of course I had to make them a card. ...and a magic card it is.... You can find the tutorial HERE. The inside is just decorated very simply. On the front I have painted a cardboard heart and the fram is really in silver but is painted with white paint. Used some cheese cloth and voilà!

Isn't he cool??

Digger denne kulen fyren her. Passer perfekt til tenåringskort og siden jeg har en og en halv tenåringsgutt (12 og 14 år) så blir det en del kort til tenåringer i løpet av året. Selvfølgelig kan dette også brukes til ungdommelige mannfolk.....
Just love this stamp, suits perfect for cards for teenagers and since I have about one and a halv teenage boys in my house (12 and 14) I have to make some cards for teenagers along the year. Of cours you can use this for some youthful men as well.....

A little angel....

Jeg har valgt å ikke ha tekst på kortet. På denne måten passer det til mange ulike anledninger som fødsel, dåp, navnedag, osv. Motivet er fargelagt med MCP-teknikken.
I choose to make the card without a sentiment. This way the card is perfect for a number of occasions such as birth, christning,  etc. The image is colored with the MCP-technique.

Gift Tags (..or mini cards)

Fikk nesten litt dilla på å lage disse minikortene/gavelappene i str 1 1/4x 4 1/4. Man kan bruke dem som enten gavelapper eller minikort. Jeg har laget hull i dem slik at de kan brukes som gavelapper. Mønsterarket er fra Panduro ("Sound of Bells") og teksten er fra NorthStarStamps

You can either use these as gift tags or mini cards, I have punched a hole in these so I will use them as gift tags but of course you can make these as sweet little cards too. The size of these are 1 1/4 x 4 1/4. The design paper is from Pandurohobby ("Sound of Bells") and the sentiment (says: Christmas greetings) is from NorthStarStamps.

Less is more {silver embossing}

Embossing er egentlig en ganske stilig effekt, men av og til så glemmer jeg at det fins.... Teksten, som forøvrig er fra Kort og Godt er embosset i sølv. Litt vanskelig å se på bildet kanskje, men sløyfen er laget av sølvfarget bånd og kantene på kortet har sølvfargede streker.
Embossing is quite a cool effect, but sometimes I just forget that embossing excists..... The sentiment, which is embossed in silver, is from Kort og Godt. It might be difficult to see, but the ribbon is in silver and on the edges of the card there is silver lines.
