6 hr bday card... (2S4U + day #124 DIY)


(after posting this pic i realized i spelled the recipients name wrong! sorry Shawna, i'll fix it if you bring it on Sunday! >>>see what happens when you work on one card for so long?)


this isn't even the half of it... i had 8 cardstock pages, and a cover/ back made of acrylic.


it's late, and i'm planning to post more pictures when my computer isn't running so slowly... BUT, i roughly followed Laura's sketch #29 (**for the cover**) over at 2sketches4you, and was able to print out the sentiments for the inside thus qualifying it for the day #124 challenge over at 365 cards.


i can honestly say that this is the most time/ labor intensive card i have EVER made. i am super lucky that my paper choice allowed me to look through my stash for some ready-made embellies (K&CO, cutest stuff ever... love the "Berry Sweet" line).


hope you enjoy, and will come back to see the rest of the card (about 6 more pages!)

thanks for looking :D

RIDICULOUS. and by that i mean ridiculously cool. i sincerely hope that you aren't spending 6 hours on any other projects though, unless they are for pay. you outdid yourself. to the nth level. i'm waiting with baited breath for the rest of the card...
