Happy Mail For You

Hello peeps!

It's a long Wednesday for us today. My daughter had a minor operation on her teeth today. We arrived at the hospital around 7:15 this morning. All the check ups, waiting, talking to various people including: the housekeeper, play specialist, nurses, aenethtist and surgeon and of course the anxiety of the actual operation were just draining. We are glad the operation went well and she is feeling well and not too painful. We managed to leave the hospital around 5 this afternoon and I think that is long enough for all of us.

Anyway, I think I have just over an hour to enter this card at Make The Day Special Stamp Store: April Theme Challenge -  Tic Tac Toe.
I picked the very bottom row: Stripes, Die Cuts and Feminine for this simple and clean card. I made this for a very good friend of mine, a crafty friend too!! Here is the card:
I used these "invisible tapes", which I bought last Christmas from Paperchase, to create the stripes. They are plain coloured tapes and are thin and look almost see through. When you attach them to a white card stock they become very pale soft colours. I love them! I wanted to try this camouflaged die cut technique for a while. See here for a great You Tube tutorial from Papertrey. This is where I got the inspiration from too! I used the Happy Script Creative Cut from Mama Elephant for this technique and I think it turned out pretty good. Here is the close up photo of it:
As I am never good at sending cards on time, especially overseas mails, I created this message for the inside of the card. I used the same invisible tapes on white cards and used Cole's ABC's Dies from Lawn Fawn to cut out the word Sorry. The cute turtle image is from Party Posse stamp set by Paper Smooches and the envelope on its back is from Pandamonium stamp set by Mama Elephant.  
I hope that you like this card as much as I do. Well, my friend certainly love it!! ^_^
I am also entering this card to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Clean and Simple.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. See you soon!
