I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as it starts to wind down. As for me, I was up most of the night tickering with this card -- still can't get the full cooperation of 2 of these fingers but I'm just happy to be crafting -- I have no complaints!!! LOL! Anyway, as I was saying I was working to complete this little project. It's not much, but for me it was another accomplishment. So far, I'm down 2 new projects!!! Just a few days ago, I couldn't do anything!!!
This card is made from acrylic and cardstock, and it has a matching box. I cut out the gatefold card and letters on my E and just cut by hand the acrylic slightly larger to fit beneath the gatefront fronts. I do not have a cut file for it, but you should pretty much be able to look at it and figure it out (just double-click on the image for a better view). I made it into a Mother's Day card only because that's the nearest occasion and I figure I'll give it to someone to give to their mom on their special day.
Because the acrylic is cut larger than the card and extends the front panels forward, the card is able to stand alone as it's own display. I wished I were able to embellish it more, but I still must be a little careful with glue and stuff. However, you can betcha I'll really dress the next one up because I love the effect of this card. I hope you like it. It's simple but to me it's still elegant.
Well, that's it until tomorrow when I'll be back to announce and feature the contributors for the showcase. I hope you'll all join me and the fairies in congratulating the selected awardees and all the contributors!!! They all did an amazing job!!!
I'll be seeing you!!!
