They did very well! After the grading we went out for lunch then had a round of crazy golf at the park and then girls played on the equipment. A fabulous day that we all enjoyed!
Onto my card for today - its a box card - or should I say card in a box.
I was inspired by seeing all these cards so headed off to U tube to find a demo and I found lots but the particular one I used can be found here.
I made up the box first then set about creating the decorating paper and butterflies - I did the paper using distress inks, a sheena embossing folder and then swept over the embossed image with a grey staz -on. I cut the pieces of paper to fit the box then stamped the butterflies in versa mark and heat set black wow powders. Then I fussy cut the butterflies.
The stamps are from Sheena and the images were coloured with spectrum noir pens. The sentiment is also from sheena douglass.
This final picture shows how the box folds flat for folding!
