Bursdagskort med gule blomster

Det er ikke ofte jeg lager kort med norsk tekst.

Til dette kortet i størrelse A6 brukte jeg:
Kremfarget og brunt papir;
Restepapir i hvitt og i forskjellige grønn- og gulfarger;
Embossing folder: Butterfly (Lifestyle Crafts);
Dies: Ivy (Cottage Cutz) og ukjent merke til tekstplaten;
Tekst skrevet på datamaskin;
Punches: Gütermann og EK Success (Blomstene);
Brun distress ink, blå og grønn penn, glass"perler".

Jeg blir med her/ Ich möchte hier teilnehmen:

Jamen er det lenge siden jeg postet noe her!
Og det har blitt lite kortlaging siden sist.
Ganske enkelt fordi jeg har brukt tiden til
å strikke slike eggevarmere.
Da jeg endelig klarte å knekke Magic Loop - koden,
fant jeg ut at slike små saker kunne være greit å strikke.
Så nå har det blitt en del av dem,
både til meg selv og til andre.
Og så har jeg lagt noen ut for salg på Etsy.
Vi nærmer oss jo påske,
og da er det aktuelt med egg.
Her er et lite utvalg.

V wie Vogel

Ich weiss nicht richtig, ob ich diese Post
auf Norwegisch, Deutsch oder Englisch schreiben soll.
Ein "Luxusproblem" wenn man an Herausforderungen
in verschiedenen Ländern mitmacht.
Ok. Ich habe Deutsch gewählt,
weil der Bibelspruch auf Deutsch ist.

Spruch aus der Bibel (Klagelieder 3,24);

from a second copy and layered it
upon the first one with 3D pads.
(I hope my English is good enough to explain what I mean.)
The sentiment is also from the same set.
I tried to make the card rather "masculine",
without any embellishments.

I used:

Chamois (vanilla) cardstock for the mat;
Green and white scrap papers;
Image and sentiment: Beccy;

made like small children do when they draw.

Today I have used this die from Marianne Design for the first time.
I bought it some time ago,
but I did not have the inspiration to use it till now.

I only used a marbled card stock,
the grape image from Beccy
and brown distress ink for the edges.
On the back side there is enough place to write a greeting.
