I wanted to share with you the card and special item I made for my husband for his birthday this year. We have an old jukebox in our lounge filled with old 45's - I took this as my theme, and this is what I came up with.
First of all here is the card, in its 'envelope'.
The paper I used to make the record sleeve came from a stack I bought from Michael's ages ago, sorry I don't remember the name.
The papers I used for this are called Penelope's Potpourri (SEI) and were a Christmas gift from a secret 'elf' - thank you Allison. Here are some close-ups and pictures of the inside.
The spinner on the inside is from Stampin' Up, and the stamp is called 'Take a Spin'.
The other thing I made for him was this.....
This (as well as the card) are from SVG Cuts, a set called Rockin' and Rollin'. It looks quite complicated and time consuming to put together - but it really isn't at all. Check out the assembly tutorials by Mary (the designer), she explains everything so clearly step by step. Here are a few other pictures.
As you can see I used the same SEI papers, a stamp from the same Stampin' Up set, some buttons and beads in a bottle. The really neat thing about the jukebox is when you put a battery operated tea light inside (there is an opening in the back) the light glows through the vellum panels. Needless to say he loved it.
Thanks for stopping by.
