One card was straightforward, I used a La Pashe 'Mechanic's Workshop' Framin' Card kit. A framed decoupage card for Andy, my husband's birthday, next month. I sat in my comfy chair and it took about 1.5 hours to cut out and layer up the card. I just need to make and attach a stand at the back so the card can be freestanding (saw how to make one from a show on Ideal World's craft day this last week.)
the photo doesn't show the dimension of the decoupaged tools on the card.
The second card ( & co-ordinating decorated envelope) was a labour of love for a very special little lady.
Next month my youngest niece Lottie is starting school, so I've made a card for Carrie to send to her cousin to mark this momentous occasion. It took me about 4 hours in total to make this card ( not including the time taken for the silicone glue to dry).
