May OCS

Hi everyone ~ hope you all had a nice Memorial Day holiday. It was a beautiful day today in Hawaii! A great day to remember all our service men and women in all branches of the military. I am so grateful to all of them and their families for serving and protecting our country.

My OCS is late this month. It was due last Wednesday, but my partner and I had communicated with each other and we both agreed that it would be ok if we were late. Anyhoo, I wanted to do something very different for my partner. This month, I was paired up with Jodi of Inked Inspirations. OMG, talk about pressure!!!

I decided to make a Tri-Shutter Card. I got the idea from Bonnie over at The Craftiblog. Her instructions were super simple to follow! I would encourage everyone to give it a try. Here is the front of my card:

This is how the card opens up:

And this is how the card looks standing up:


This card was definitely a challenge for me, but I'm very pleased with the way it turned out! I sure hope Jodi likes it ~ hope you guys like it too! Until next time, Aloha ...

  15. Linda, I LOVE how you did this card! See how late I am? Jodi must've been so happy to get this. I love how you embellished all the little areas and I struggled with mine. I think I'll try and "copy" yours and see what I can come up with, with what I have on hand. Love this! I need to find a "long" sentiment for that back spot. Just beautiful! Hugs, Cami

  16. Hi Linda! After meeting you tonight, I had to go check out your blog. OMG..this is absolutely gorgeus!!!!! It really took my breath away because I love the intricacy of the card and the little details you put into it like the pearls on the butterfly.

    How did you get the swirls to have an glossy epoxy look? Did they come like that or did you use another product?

    Love it!!! I'm so glad to have met you, you made my day today!
