Our son-in-law is from Germany, and we have come to know and love his family there. He has a lovely sister named Nadine who is a wonderful seamstress and paper crafter. Yay! I'm so glad Nadine and I share a love for this hobby, even though we're an ocean apart!
She was so kind to send me some samples of the things she has made. Following are a few of the items she sent, and I'll be showing more of them to you in another blog post.
Here's a little closer look at the central image of the card. I'm not sure what she used to cut the bird image, but I really love it!
Here's a look at the inside of the card. You can see that the liner has a deckle edge. The greeting means something akin to "A loving greeting."
Here's a little closer look at the owls. They make me smile, just to look at them.
And a little closer look at this winter scene. This would also look great on a masculine card. We all seem to have more trouble making cards for men, and stamps like this are the perfect solution.
As I mentioned at the top of this post, these are just some of the items Nadine sent. I'll be sharing more in another post.
Isn't Nadine a wonderful paper crafter? Please leave her a note, if you can, and let her know that even though we may live in different countries, we're all part of the same craft-loving community!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
