My surprise for her is going to London for her very first time, christmas shopping that is =)
So it had to be a travelling card, girlie and cute.
After three mistakes I finally came up with this card, and I am quite a bit proud of my self, at last =)
This suitcase die was my first die, but this is the first project I was able to finish!
Front: Decorated with a vintage monogram, a few adorable roses with ribbon and two adorable pearl spots, and of course her name, Julie.
Back: Tickets (printed from pc), stripes are the suitcase locker. The pocket was "sewn by hand" with a big needle.
Inside I made another pocket, hiding the birthday wish and some cute words. I thought this mini necklace fit just about, and became adorable. (I needed something to pay attention to, so she will find the note)
As luggage there is several tags pointed together with a strap and a pearl. The tags are decorated with the things to do in London, WinterWonderland, Madame Tussaud, city map of London, theatre.. I just forgot to take a pic before I pointed them together.
I made a kind of locker around the suitcase with the straps, a small napkin is also hiding the last secret, the coupon value for: SHOPPING IN LONDON. Back is decorated with leftovers from the suitcase. The white feather pumpkin is a mobile tag she have wanted for some time. Just to make sure she finds the last card.
