Under the Wire Anniversary Mojo

My sister-in-law has been here all week, and she came to write. So write we did.  Which means I got little else done.  However, this same sister-in-law has an anniversary coming up soon.  It's not often that I get a chance to make one of those cards that would take a fortune to mail and hand deliver it to someone who lives six states away.  Using the Mojo Monday #231 I came up with this card:

 Stamps are from CTMH Soul Mates (now discontinued which makes me sad for the rest of you but glad I got mine).

The "awning" on the tag was one of those what-would-happen-if things. I had a little bit of the paper lace left after adding the bottom border and thought I would give it a whirl.  Because there was a long "tail" left over after fan folding it, I was able to tie the knot around it and then cut off the excess.  I secured it onto the tag with Liquid Glass.  Kinda like it!
I used Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp on the ribbon.  I thought about embossing it to make sure the image stayed sharp, but I'm pretty sure this particular ribbon would have melted.

We were watching "Galaxy Quest" while I made this, and it took me the entire movie to complete the card. The only problem was, when the movie was over and the card was inside its envelope, I realized I forgot to sign it.  Uh, duh!!

Good thing my sister-in-law loves me!

Until next time,
