CARD COMMISSION

Good morning crafty friends....

A friend asked me to make a card for her daughter-in-law's mother's 70th birthday - phew, that was a tad long winded!  She didn't specify anything just to 'make a card' and this is what I did make


An 8"sq white card base with smaller panels of black, pink and white card

I used a corner punch on the white card then embossed it, followed by covering it with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet, then removed the backing and sprinkled glitter jewels over it

I die cut and embossed the centre pink card and typed the sentiment in grey ink as I didn't want it to look harsh

I added double mounting foam to the back of the sentiment and adhered it onto the card

Pale pink gems were adhered to the bottom of the sentiment


The white swirls, under the flowers, were die cut and embossed on white card and I used a ball tool to give these a little 'movement' before gluing them in place

I die cut a whole sheet of A4 vellum flowers, in various sizes, shaped them then coloured them

White and pale pink stamens were placed in the centres and I used a hot glue gun to ensure the flowers would stay in place on the card


The colour scheme was carried onto the inside of the card.  I stamped both pieces of white card (looks a much paler pink on here but it is white!)  with a grey ink pad

The space below the verse is for a personal message.  My friend has asked me to write it and as my writing lends to 'flourishes' the space will fill nicely

Good morning all I've been unable to craft for a few days as I 'stumbled' and broke several nails to the point the nail bed...
