Crafting in the night................




Well I was up until 1.30am last night finishing this and then I lost internet connection...which made me very grumpy...so here it is, for what it's worth..which was blood, sweat and tears.

365 Cards Day 170 - 'Double Duty'
Which means it has to double as a gift or something else at least, but no voucher holders!

I have been gathering seeds over the summer from my garden - what summer? - and had the idea to pass them on so this challenge lit up a light bulb in my head.
I made a sort of concertina book to hold all the little packets of seeds so lovingly collected.

Ingredients:-
2 pieces of grey card for front and back frrom my bottomless box
6 Vellum envelopes
large peice of Kraft wrapping paper
PP's - Basic Grey 'Offbeat'
Sentiments - a mix of Clarity Stamps, Hero Arts, and computer generated
Floral images - Penny Black 'Christmas Colour'(front cover) and Great Impressions (back cover)
Paper to cover front and back boards - a lovely piece of Mango Soft
Ribbon - Grograin: SU 'Always Artichoke' silk: Anna Griffin
Tags from my stash

Being so late in the night and so tired I just snapped away with my camera at my work table, so apologies, as always, for the poor pics.

One day I will surprise you with the most amazing photography, but the cards will still be the same..lol!!
