Sneak Peek and Gift from an Australian Friend!

I love meeting stampers, especially when they are here visiting from far away places!   This past weekend I met Teneale Williams from Sydney,  Australia.  She and her lovely family were here on a birthday holiday celebration and we met up for a little bit.  She is just delightful and you just have to bookmark her BLOG for some amazing creations and say hello!  

Teneale surprised me with a hand stamped gift box and card.  When she handed the card to me in the envelope, I couldn’t believe the weight of it!  I wish you could feel it.

With my jaw dropping, I said “It’s amazing!  And so heavy!”  She said “I like to make ’em chunky!”  We laughed and she said her customers think it’s to sell them more card stock and I said “I’m sold!”  I actually never thought of double layers of each color but it really makes a statement.

See how many layers? Each card stock layer is double!

The envelope and inside of the card was as lovely as the front.  (see the white baker’s twine on the inside?  Nice touch!)

And the box?  All stamped and sparkly was a gift by itself but then she filled it with a beautiful bookmark with our Window pane embellishment.  It was nestled in the box on top of paper shreds and little butterfly embosslits. 

Teneale, you inspired me!  I’m going chunky…

    Beautiful. Everything is just beautiful!
    I absolutely love layers and everything I make has layers. I drive everyone crazy as I can’t make a card from just one or two pieces of paper. Love the chunky look and such a fabulous gift!
