Today I have a new card and a Tile with vinyl to share with you. Just recently my 94 year old grandmother passed away. We are a very close family and we also have a very close church family. For my grandmother's memorial, we had over 120 people attend. My sister, Kelly, ran most of the service. I ready a poem that my grandmother said she tried to live her life by called "Today" and told a few stories. But what really made the service was my sister's friend from church, Delores. She sang "Amazing Grace" which was one of my grandmother's favorite songs, of course, I sat there with tears running down my cheeks like most of the other people sitting there. Delores has an amazing voice! I hope she likes the card and the tile.
I used a 9 x 13 tile and I just happen to purchase this really nice rod iron easel at Michael's, the saying says it all. I had a few problems with the vinyl, I think it was the font I used. All in all, it took me about 1 hour start to finish on this project.
I then created this Shy Tilda easel card (yes, as a few of you said, I am addicted to easel cards now!) and a box with a window. The box was cut on the circut also. I am sure you can see my BIG mistake, I decided I didn't want the acetate to show on the back of the box lid, so I cut a frame from the cardstock that I used for the card. After I had sandwiched the acetate between the lid and the cardstock, I turned it over only to notice that I put it on upside down...I tried to peel it off, but darn if that score tape does work like cement!! This was my last sheet of this paper, so I had to leave it. Oh well..I guess she will know it is handmade!
Here is the card that is inside the box. I just love this Shy Tilda, she is colored with Copic markers and is on a oval that is run through my cuttlebug. The beautiful lace is from a card kit I got from Peggy Biggs (This lace is so pretty!) and the flowers, leaves and crystal stems are from Wild Orchid.
The cardstock is from K and Company. The Thank you is from the Justrite Stampers.
