english lit 101 (Paper Crafts)

Quick one here.  Paper Crafts Connection is looking for cards that are "very British."  How's this?

An explanation perhaps?  The Queen's an institution and the Olympics were fab, but I don't own stamps of either and I probably never will.  I do have these ephemera/post stamps from Papermania.  So I opted to pair them with some Alice in Wonderland stamps.  In reverance to my days as an English major.

Stamped my art (he he he).  Punched an edge.  Added some twine and "crown jewels".  Photographed it at midnight in poor lighting and here you have it.  The inside is stamped with "I'm late, I'm late, I'm late".  A belated bday card - capice?  Consider it an American attempt at British humor.

Off to bed.  Cheerio.

Supplies Oh dear:
Paper: CS Neenah
Stamps:   Crafty Secrets, Papermania
Ink: Jenny Bowlin, Versafine gray
Tools: border punch EKS
Other:  twine, beads

Get OUT, Maria! Those images are sooo coool, and perfect for a belated birthday card. Love the beads at the end of the twine, such a great idea (crown jewels, giggle...). Also wanted to stop and say thanks again for always leaving the sweetest comments on my blog. Another PS...I didn't stamp that pink damask on my card, it was patterned paper that came that way (lucky for me)!!!

This card is awesome! Love those images, I can almost see her saying "Off with her head!", although that's a bit tough for just being a little late with a birthday card, your sentiment works a lot better!
