Happy Valentine's Day
Good Morning and Happy Valentine's Day to you!
Just popping in to show you one of the cards I actually finished this week. I've been coloring up a storm so I have lots of images to make cards with, but this one had to get done by today... and of course I finished it just before midnight last night. LOL...
My husband and I have celebrated 26 Valentine's days and it's never been a dull moment. :) It gets better each year.
The stamps are GinaK's and the paper is Basic Grey Boxer.
To make this accordion type card, I started with a long piece of cardstock. It is 24 inches long by 5 1/2 inches. I purchased at Marco Paper at a convention. I only used around 14-15 inches for this one. I did another one using exactly 12 inches so that if you wanted to try it, you would use paper in a size that is readily available. I'm still working on the card but here are the measurements for that one--
The largest panel is 4 1/4 (to fit a standard invitation envelope). The next two panels are 3 inches each and the last one is 1 3/4.
My heart is heavy. Some friends lost their 19 year old in a car accident yesterday. I cannot imagine... Hug your kids-- especially those teenagers.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18.
