Oops I forgot to blog . . .

. . . I've been so busy making cards lately that I forgot all about my blog, oh how could I???

Here's a card that I was commissioned to make for a lady who was leaving us at work for the wonderful adventure that is New Zealand . . . how lucky can one person get???

I had lots of fun playing about with this one.  The DP is from "K&Co", I love it and I've been waiting for an excuse to use it.

I coloured Tilda with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I used various cut out bits which had a travel theme from other "K&Co" papers.
The trunk and the signpost are also Magnolia stamps

The inside of the easel card was decorated with text paper and a post card was used to make a pocket for a luggage label with the sentiment written on it.
More of the travel themed bits and pieces were used to.  A metal anchor charm and the card was completed.

Just  a little photo of the box which was made to match it.

Heavy weight gold card was used for the lid of the box and I used much the same elements to decorate it as was used in the card itself.  The lettering is from K&Co.

Thanks for visiting me
