Card for Chris!

Hi all, been a busy week for me! Had another 6 boxes to get done and also more wedding stationary catch ups! Been so horrible here, cold, rain, sleet and hail! Would have thought it was winter again! Today has been nice tho, hubby got more of the driveway done whilst I played in craft room! Not a bad day really!


Well I've done it, made the card I was asked to do for the blind person. It was one of the hardest boxes I've had too do, but with everyone's help I got it done! A big Thanks to Ellie for her help with finding me Braille, thanks pea!!

I used a bright green card stock for the base and PM 12x12 checked paper to decorate the box! Also used scraps of white card for the side panels. On the sides I used felt and triple stamped images so he could feel all the outlines! On the other sides I used gems for the Braille wording, with peel-off letters underneath for others to read. I used some flower soft on the outside for a grass effect. To finish off I added more gems and ribbon plus a wee whiskey in the middle!



I'm so happy with this box, the results are great! All the feed back I've had so far has been great!! Hopefully Chris will like it too, fingers crossed!!
Thanks for looking xxxx
