This bookcard i made for my brother- in- law and sister. They were married for 25 years on the 16th of May. The reason why I am so late with showing it on my blog is that I finished it on the day that I had to giveit to them so I had no time to make the photo's anymore. So I couple of days later I made thePhoto's. It was a nice project to make so I am sure I will make one again. It was my intention to use some Maggies but I had some trouble to make them smaller so I only used 5 different Magnolia Doohicky’s: Romantic Tag, Dream Tag, the Leaf and Swirl(only the Swirl), Magnolia Tree(only the little butterflies and the Swirly butterfly. The rosette I made with the Tim Holtz Rosette maker , is a perfect die when you need a quick rosette. The heart with the Poem is from Spellbinders and ofcourse I used the punch Doily lace from Martha Stewart and also a lot of glitter. By the way the poems I have from the internet.
On Saturday the 21th of May i had a cooking evening with 7 other ladies. Once in the two/three months we are cooking together and this time it was my turn. So I had to choose the starter, the main course and the desert. I also had to do the shopping. The ladies who were coming must prepare the diner. So, the evening before I started with the menu cards(to late I know). Not very difficult but I had to make eight of them…… so that was taking a lot of time. I wanted to use Tilda with spoon and also the sentiment is from Magnolia but I had not the time anymore to color them so they had to leave them behind so I could finished them. I must honestly say that I will not do this again( to color eight of the same images) very soon, but I am very pleased with the result. Again I have used the rosette maker of Tim Holtz. And also a punch from Martha Stewart the Deep Edge punch Leaves and Bracnche. Other materials; ribbon, a little gliter.
