Good morning to you all
Today I would like to share with you some old and new. I was asked if I could make an
Anniversary Card for a Wife.
Not a problem, so I e mailed my Pinterest link for these over.
Not expecting what the order came back as and this was the choice.
So here is a card I made within the first few months of card making. I had to score the embossed squares myself and used a peel off for the sentiment, as at that time I did not have the large selection I have now. All the flowers were from either the Hobby House, Hobby Craft or the local cheap shop. The pearls from the Hobby House. My photography was on an old camera and without my day light lamp. This one was a 15cm square card and think it was pearlescent cream.
Anyway so I had to case my own card, so here is my revamped new card for the order.
Slightly different :)
This is an 8" square so needed some strength to hold the flowers and still stand nicely. So I layered up onto a white base a layer of burgundy then a layer of white and then another layer of burgundy before adding my embossed top sheet. This embossed sheet if from my new M-Bossabilities folder that I got from the Hobby House, went with the fancy choice out of the two.
Tip: if you bought an original grand callibur and you bought one of these folders, due to the white paper guide it will not fit, however a pair of strong scissors will cut it neatly so you still can use it.
I added an MSE sentiment and layered this on the burgundy and raised this with foam pads, before starting on adding all of those little pearls from the Hobby House. I added several flowers the burgundy mulberry roses from the Hobby House the leaves are a woodware punch the lillies are from I am Roses and the gem's and some of the other little fill in flowers are from the cheap shop. I added a Hobby House charm to finish off.
He loved it and I am sure it will be another one for his wife to store, so I placed it in a clear fronted box, so she can store it safely.
So all that is left to say is thank you to all my wonderful visitors and followers for your kind words, which allow me to visit you in return.
