Brother in law birthday

This is a handmade birthday card and bookmark. You can see both sides of the bookmark have been personalized with his name on one side and the PI symbol on the other (he is a mathematician, and it happens to be one of my favorite numbers) in multiples. Each one of the multiples utilizes different paper, the top a shiny metallic paper, the middle an opaque blue and the last a transparent blue vellum. The card I made with the same metallic paper in the center, and a soft almost fabric like paper for the details. The center is three layers (soft, metallic, then soft for the flower) and has a 3 dimensional brad that I cut the tabs off of and glued on. The inside has a robot that I embossed with silver metallic embossing powder. This was actually sent out a while back but due to the distraction of my recent animation projects (and my husbands health) I never got around to uploading it to the blog, so here it is.

Again my apologies for no crafts or sewing on my craft and sewing blog - it seems I'm all one creative force or the other, and in this case it most certainly was true, I didn't have time to do anything else as I was burning the midnight oil to meet the deadline (boy was it a sight!). Here I will copy and paste my animation blog words for you "This piece was the most sequential animation that I have done. It was generated for the film2music competition in which registrants are asked to select a track from the composers CD and create a video to accompany it. Previous to this competition I had been busy producing "The Mark" for the aniboom contest. This meant that I had only a couple weeks to create and complete this one. As elaborate as a concept this piece was, the time line wasn't feasible but I crunched through nights without sleep to get it in on time. I just barely made it, but I made it!So the prize for this one is not only money but meetings with a famous producer and agent! And this time, it's no sweat to vote, you don't have to sign up or register for anything, no typing at all, it's just one click and "send", okay so technically that's two clicks, but that's all just clicks!Come watch dandelion here - an animation about hope and faith in ones future dreams. Thank you all!" Gina
