Card in a Tin

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in to have a look see at my wee blog. You are more than welcome to have a rummage about to see if there is anything that might help the mojo juices to flow.
What has happened to the weather. The rain in our area over the last 24 hours has been horrendous. Perth has been flooded despite having spent millions on flood defences. The trouble was that the water did not come from the river but from the sky. I just hope Stampaholics managed to stay dry. Which brings me neatly to today's creation.
I did not have a good day yesterday and wasn't feeling like a lot of crafting. I am therefor blogging a card I made some time ago in a class at Stampaholics. You know how I rave about Siobhan's classes and this card is a fantastic example of her talent and style. This card just screams Siobhan. I don't have a lot of detail about the papers or image so I'm just going to let the card speak for itself.
The photograph above is of the altered tin that the card goes inside.

The card is a multifold card with different images/sentiments on each facing side. There are a total of six faces.

This is a photograph of the front face that you see when you open the tin.

These are the next two pages that appear when you open the card out and they are followed by

these two pages before you come to the back face of the card which is shown below.

I love this card and I hope you don't mind me sharing an old unpublished project with you today. The design is Siobhan's although I made the card under her tutelage. Thank you for the benefit of your help and guidance Siobhan.
If you like this card feel free to leave me a comment to let me know what you think. I love to read what you have to say.
Why not nip over to the Stampaholics website where you will find more examples of Siobhan's creativity.
Have a good day crafting and above all stay safe.

  13. This is stunning Fiona. I love the colours and the images and just everything about it. The card and the tin are both amazing. Must have been a great class.

    I saw on the TV news how bad the flooding had been in Perth. It looked awful. My son-in-law works in Perth at Cameron Audi but since I don't know Perth very well I don't know where that is in relation to the flooding!

    Hope you're feeling better today.

    Take care,

    Kat xx
