Who is John? I hear you ask! Well John is my other half! He is the half that makes me whole and he is 49 on Tuesday. I have been making his birthday cards every year since I met him 8 years ago! Even before my paper crafting addiction took hold!
I usually stamp my cards but he is an engineer - he likes blue and he likes unfussy designs best, so I pinched Denize's idea [she made a fab birthday card for Andrea out of the word friend] and decided to tell him on the front of the card how I felt.
Half way through I wished I had stuck to stamping - because I am no engineer. It took me a while to size the letters .... I placed them on a DL card and decided to cut around them. To cut a long, tedious and time consuming story short the front of my card ended up in three sections!
What's a girl to do?
After the initial panic I thought "acetate!" So I inserted the acetate into the centre of the card and joined all three sections with my handy CAD.
I am still not sure if I like the card or not ..... it may be another one for the bin .... but I thought if I stuck it on here I could see what you all thought!
The papers are Lynne Perrella BTW.
