A Very Appropriate Card!


Good morning all....

Here is another acetate card. This one almost found itself chucked. It is now a top opening card. I messed it up by scoring the side crooked. Then I tried to cover that mistake up by tucking it into a strip of card and weaving ribbon up the side. Yuck! Total waste of time! So, then I cut the whole scored bit off and nearly had the underarm action towards the bin in motion when it hit me that I could try a top opener. AND here we are.

The image is a Whipper Snapper (MW592 Umbrella and Slicker)....I wasn't aware a raincoat was a slicker...You learn something every day! I coloured the image in Prisma Pencils and odourless Solvent and added Dimensional Magic to the raindrops, parts of the brolly and the ground puddle. Add a bit of ribbon top and bottom (the bottom one is threaded through the two little holes punch by SU, and add a line of pearls (by Kaiser) and it is all done!

I added exactly the same layout as the nesties on the front to the inside...now there is a challenge for you...Keeping everything perfectly lined up while you are taping the two parts of the card together!!! Inside has the wonderful verse from PB that reads...A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day.
