And now one for Grandma

I spent most of the day with my mom yesterday and one of our tasks was to get crafty.  While she was busy working on her mother-in-laws birthday cards, I was busy working on a card for my grandmother.  She's taking the plunge... she's moving to Florida this month.

My mom bought some fabric from one of our local scrapbook shops - Farmhouse Memories (you can see the whole fabric by visiting their blog here) - where we had taken a class on how to make cards with fabric.  Very fun technique.  So using the fabric my mom had all ready for this card, here's what I came up with -

We were working at her place, so I didn't have my usual supplies near by, but that was okay with me because I got to unwrap her Grand Calibur by Spellbinders!!  I used the Labels One Grand Nestibilites to create the shaped card.  I made a frame using the smallest die inside the third smallest die.  I attached some sand paper that she dug out for me at the bottom of the scene then attached the frame on dimensionals.  I also cut out the hats from another piece of the fabric and popped those up for a little dimension.

Once the outside was done, I moved onto the inside (still being inspired by Lawnscaping Challenge #13 - Don't Forget the Inside) - 

(sorry the pictures a little grainy)

I cut the girl out from another piece of fabric, added some more sandpaper, and a sentiment that was stamped and then cut out with the Spellbinders Fancy Tags (the stamp set is made to coordinate with these tags, but I can't remember who makes them right now).

So with that, best wishes in Florida, Grandma and happy summer to everyone else!!

(and since it's summery, I'll also be entering it in the Wee Memories #61 Challenge - Summertime)
