Barely friends

I just received my Crafters Inspiration magazine yesterday and as I was busy doing secret stuff for Little Claire I didn't get to look at it till I was tucked up in bed at 11.30. I had been asked to make 10 samples using the heart die which came with the magazine and this is one of the samples I made. I did a version of this card for a very dear friend who has a bit of a teddy bear obsession and she loved it.
It is a straight forward card although I never did get the easel bit right and ended up with the top of the card not sitting directly over the bottom. This was my first ever attempt at an easel card and I think I could have made life easier if I had chosen a square shaped card.
Its a really simple card to make but looks much more complicated than it is.
what was used:
Crafters Inspiration 15 CD - Autumn Charm toppers & papers
Crafters Inspiration 15 heart die
Crafters Companion, Shabby Chic, Heartfelt Thanks stamp
Tattered Lace essentials circles die
15cm scallop die (I used my Scan n Cut)
yellow embroidery thread
small hole punch
good quality 210gsm mat print paper
white card
Coredinations Brights linen card (burnt orange)
greeting made on computer
I have just finished my secret samples for Little Claire and I should be able to share them with you at the end of the month. I have to say the new stamps which I have been working with are lovely and I have enjoyed using them all.
I have been trying to upcycle a blanket box which Stu made for me years and years ago to put all of my sewing stuff in. Well my sewing stuff has outgrew the blanket box ages ago and it was looking a bit tired and tatty so I thought I would paint it and do a bit of stencilling on it. I am just waiting for Stu to fix a wooden plinth around the bottom of it and then I can seal the paint and its good to go. I will take a photo of the box when its finished but I`m rather pleased with it so far.
