I admit it at the very beginning: I do NOT enjoy making cards for official events like Weddings! It seems like a curse: I try to get right angles and exakt measurements, but there is always some lacking when I am done! A last minute stamped fingerprint on the back, which I noticed too late or oblique angles, where there should be right ones...
But things like these have to be done and I am of course too proud (and too lazy) to go and buy cards, so - from time to time - birthday cards & co keep me busy and slightly annoied.
But creating the envelopes for my son's birthday party was fun! He turned 9 this september and had invited his three best friends over for a "mens' evening" (which in truth lasted from 3 pm to 6 pm *lol). But I was gently asked out for this afternoon, as no women were allowed present during this event. (So I selflessly "suffered" with my best friend in her garden at her swimming pool, having drinks and no shouting kids around. Poor me!)
The envelopes contained little goodies for the guests, as there were cool removable tattoo's, monster buttons, skull lollies, marbles and spiderman rubbers.
The wax seals were highly appreciated, I was told!
The card for the wedding offered resistance as usual. I had to cut the inlay twice (just to discover, I had made it right angled the second time but too small again *hmpf) and I halfway tore the stamp with the iron fence image when peeling it off from its' sheet for the first time. *grmpf
But the result can be shown and this is as good as it can get.
Love this stamp so much!
