my cousin's wedding card
thanks for the get well wishes, I was feeling pretty junk this morning when I went to work, but I came home early and slept for 4 hours and feel better. In any case, I spent most of yesterday (in between taking breaks and Tylenol for my fever) finishing up his guest book. I am taking my paper cutter w/ me and extra embellishments so I can finish it up there... YIKES!
I made this tri-shutter card for him, but I bumped up the size so it can fit into a 5 x7 envelope. Their colors are eggplant purple and silver so here's my take on that. The flowers are from sizzix dies and I textured embossed the backgrounds of each section (silver part). Then I cut out the words w/ my cricut (still getting used to this thing). The sentiment is from Corinthians and then the stamp on the last panel was from cute stuff.
All in all I think it turned out okay, it might be a little too big to stand up for long periods of time, but that's okay.
Well, I probably won't be able to post when I'm gone but I will make a slide show of the finished guest book when I come back.
Thanks again for the get well wishes and safe travel wishes. I hope that I'll be better enough to comfortably enjoy the long plane rides and stopovers we have.
Take care and I'll try to go blurfing when I'm gone. I got the new 3G my touch from t-mobile so I can see some blogs but it just takes so long to load. I don't want to miss anything you guys make- you're all so awesome!
