Only Count The Sunny Hours

fredag 12 april 2013

Hello, and good morning!
We are approaching the weekend again, I hope it brings something nice to you. Maybe a little craft time?
Here I have a card with a slightly different folding to show today.

This is also another project for Ett Trykk and their challenge Backgronds with structure.
I made my background by first crumple tissue paper, then straighten it and stamped on it with a text stamp.

I glued it on a piece of cardstock, gave it a little more Distress inks, and  then I added a thin layer of decoupage paint.

I decided to use a small magnet to the closing of the card.
Behind the image that I have cut out from Graphic 45 Secret Garden papers, you can see coordinations paper that I have run through one embossing plate and then sanded.

I found the old metal button in a small second-hand shop a while ago. I think it´s perfect for this card. Oh, I forgot the stamp in the upper corner, it´s from Pinkpaislee.
Here is the card open. In the middle I placed a tag in a little pocket.
