Hi there & thanks for stopping by again!
I must admit the short winter days in Europe & the low temperatures are slowly getting to me, so I decided to bring the summer into my crafting room:
This was a special project not only to lift my own mood, but also as a birthday gift for my friend who loves to travel the world (particularly the sunny & relaxing places).
What's special about this card is the see-through shaker element on the front panel, where all adhesive is nicely hidden behind hand-cut frames & palm trees (as you may know I still don't have a die cutting machine so I make everything by hand, and I actually like the outcome a lot).
Adhering the thread for the hammocks was a little fiddly I admit, but the end result shows that it's worth the effort!
And by the way: the white sequins in the shaker part should imitate some white wash of the waves... in case you were wondering =D
I for my part want to go to my favorite Australian beach now... oh if it wasn't so far away!
Thanks for spending some time with me here & I hope you like what you see.
Until next time!
