Good Evening all.
I hope I find you well. I`ve been busy this last week or so with an order from a friend of my daughters. We met at the Macmillan Coffee Morning where I was selling cards to raise funds and she asked me to make a couple of cards for her daughter.
Apparently the family were so pleased ( insert huge grin and big head here) that I was asked to make 8 cards for various family members, one of them being a Golden Wedding Annivesary card. After a few false starts and much web browsing, this is what I came up with.
I started off with an a4 sheet of cream pearlised card which I printed the sentiment onto from the pc. As soon as it came out of the printer I poured Detail Gold Embossing Powder onto it. I`ve seen it done before but never tried it myself so I was quite chuffed the way it came out.
I cut a square of white pearlised card with a watered silk effect on it and used it to mat another square of the cream card.
I used two pieces of cream ribbon, crossed at the top of the panel and adhered lightly so I could line them up with the hearts.
The hearts were cut out with a Sizzix die in the cream and white card with the white one laying flat and the cream raised with foam pads.
I added some clear gems to the ribbon and the hearts and added the bow.
I`ll be back later in the week with another card from the selection. I haven`t passed them on yet but I know they don`t look at the blog so I`m sure I`m safe lol.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
