Anyway, back to this post, after doing bits of this card all week, but never actually putting in the effort to finish it, I decided I should sort that out this afternoon. So, after watching the rugby, and then calming down a bit after Wales won, I headed upstairs to finish this one off and photograph it.
Unfortunately, I can't take all the credit for this one, as I did use an idea from a very handy little book that I got this Christmas called 'The Ultimate Cardmaker' and the card was called Heart of Gold. I used an edge cutter on a white card, with the same metallic gold card as the hearts are, behind it. I then just used a plain white/see through ribbon, tied it at the top and let one end fall down. I threaded on the 3 beads and put a tiny bit of PVA glue on the last bead just to make sure it didn't fall off, although they were quite tightly put on there. The othere end of the ribbon I cut short and stuck it on the inside of the card with a bit of double sided tape.
I then made an envelope using plain white thin card, rounded off the edges, and then used the same edge cutter on the envelope and stuck a bit more metallic card behind.
It was quite a simple card to make, but, as with a lot of the cards I make, I got towards the end and was scared to go on in case I ruined what I'd already done! We'll see what the reactions to the cards are on Tuesday :)
