I managed to finish this yesterday – I do like it a lot.
I photographed it without all the added bits as it the def. destined for someone who reads my blog. Can’t have the surprise spoiled, now can we?
Bits from the Que Sera, Sera paper pack that I just love. Interestingly, the scallop is cut from a bit of Prima packaging (they have such pretty packaging, I use it for all sorts of things) that matched the paper nicely.
I will def. be making more of these. I love the interactive element. One caveat is I think it benefits from a day under a heavy book, because if you use heavy card it will want to pop open for a while. esp. if you add a lot of stuff to the middle! But as mine has to go in the mail I kept the final greeting and the top decorations quite flat. I’ll be sure to photograph it before I pop it in the mail so I can share it at a later date!
Now, I have confirmation I can get to my crop this Saturday so I really need to get some stuff to work on sorted!
