Tie card for my Dad

This Saturday I went to my first – but definitely not last – meeting for scrapbookers/card makers, hosted by one of my favourite Swedish stamp brands, Vilda stamps. It was wonderful to meet so many creative people and get so much inspiration!

One of the challenges during the meeting was to make a tie card using both a text stamp and a motive stamp from Vilda stamps. Since I recently had the good luck of winning the whole collection of Pion design Vintage garden I went for one of the papers.

Now Father’s Day in Sweden isn’t until autumn, but since my dad turns 65 in July I thought I’d be very well in advance in making him a card! 🙂




The text is a wellknown Swedish song about summer and the flowers are from Prima. Love’em! 🙂

Inside the card:



Stamps from Gummiapan (another Swedish brand) and Vilda stamps. The first quote says ”Wishing you a day filled with sunshine and laughter” and the second ”A day without laughter is a wasted day” (also available in English at Vilda stamps)

    Tjenare Birgit… Om jag inte varit med på träffen och inte sett dig skapa ihop det här fina slipskortet, så hade jag nog inte vetat att det var du… som skriver blogg på engelska :-)! Kul! Och kul att du tittade förbi :-).
    Om du har några kompisar som vill gå på kurs – så kan jag fixa det… Kolla under kurs-infot i min blogg, så kanske du får lite mer inspiration till vad jag gärna lär ut :-). Det kan givetvis hända att jag glömt av något viktigt, men då skriver jag upp det, omedelbums :-).
