A 3D GAZEBO CARD

A final good evening post.

First I'd like to thank my friend, Helen, for so graciously accepting my apology.

Well, it seems I am not going to be able to peacefully retire to get some much needed rest until I share this card with you that I finished early this morning.  I tried to put it off, but I couldn't; I am too anxious for you to see it.  The card is 1 of 2 templates that a very good friend purchased for me as a Christmas present.  I just got around to doing it because I absolutely hate cutting, and this template was in pieces and had some intricute cuts (cricut has me spoiled), so this may possibly be the first and last time I do this card -- that is, until and/or unlessI can do a cut.file

The card is beautiful!!!  I added the flower and bush boxes, and embellished; however, the kit is pretty much complete with everything else needed (including a box which is also in pieces and I just didn't want to do any more cutting).   I did not complete the card because I have no idea what occassion I'm going to use it for and/or who to give it too.  Maybe I'll send it to you for the next game contest.  Would you like that?

I would like to thank my precious friend and I'm sure she'll be glad to know I finally got around to doing at least something on one of the templates (she's been asking every week since she gave it to me).  And, I didn't want her to think her gift wasn't appreciated.  It really is a beautiful card!

I'm going to show you several different views:




Well, I am really tired and hate to admit I desperately need some rest, so I probably won't be back with you until Monday..., but...

I will be seeing you!

OMG, Audrey, that is utterly exquisite! Definitely worth all of the work you did. It would be FABULOUS for a number of occasions. I know what you mean about being spoiled by the Cricut, though. LOL xxD

This card is absoultely beautiful!!! I would LOVE to have the template so I could figure out how to make a MTC file to cut it on the cricut. DO you happen to know where she got the template for you? Your card turned out wonderful!!! Anyone would be very lucky to get this from you!

paperscissors said...

you never stop impressing me with your productivity! but it is how you finish a project with embellishments that puts your stamp on it so i am finally convinced that you do not have a crafting fairy! but i still think you are superwoman!

Beautiful card! I can see using this for many different occasions. I've got to take a peek at these templates now! It's just amazing! I bet you can whip this up as a .cut file though knowing you and your talent! :)

Janell J said...

My goodness this is absolutely beautiful!!!

Carol said...

WOW is not a big enough word to describe this incredible card! You cut this all by hand? Oh my, no wonder it took a while to actually make it ... but what a stunning card it turned out to be.

If by any chance you are able to make a cut file for this (and I pray that you will), please let me know ... I would love to make this special card for my Daughter's up-coming wedding!

I am totally over whelmed at how incredible this card looks!

Hugz,
♥Carol♥
