Good Evening All
Well this card was started quite late last night and I’ve not long since finished it this evening! Makes it sound a bit epic, doesn’t it, but I have been to work in between! It started off heading in one direction and then I changed my mind halfway through 😉
One of the girls at work turns 50 this week, so I thought I’d do something a bit special for her. The papers I have used are from Stampin Up and the bottom one is flocked, which gives the card a very luxurious feel.
I’ll be very honest and tell you that I have used one of Sue Wilson’s previous card designs for my inspiration, but from there on in, it’s all my own work. The base card has been made using 2 pieces of black card, cut, folded and stuck together to make an 8×8. I’ve then layered the various papers and pierced the base one around the edges. The sentiment has been stamped and embossed and then cut out using my nesties. The flowers have been cut using a Tim Holtz die and then I’ve spritzed them with water and scrunched them up. The centre of the flowers are black pearl brads, which I got from the Hobby House along with the hat pins behind the bow.
I’m going to enter this into the following challenges:-
Cupcake Craft Challenges – Number Cruncher
Moving Along with the Times – Make it Sentimental
That Craft Place – Anything Goes
I’m really quite pleased with how this card turned out in the end and I really hope that Alison at work is pleased with it too 🙂
Will be back again soon
