Pigeon Card

Post by cb on Sun 8 Jan 2012 - 20:13

I was asked by a work colleague to make a birthday card for her husband who has recently taken up a new hobby of breeding racing pigeons. She wanted a loft so after looking at various pictures on websites this is what I came up with -





It's a tent fold card with a bit added for lawn and path and also to help it stand up. Sign on the Door says "Peter's Pigeon Loft" Pigeons are decoupaged and those are pigeon news and feed on the floor.

Hehe - brilliant Cath - I love it, and cards like this are so special when
they are particularly made for someone.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing
