Good Morning Friends,
I made this card for my mum’s birthday and I was quite pleased with how it came out. The background card was matted onto a pale beige pearlescent cardstock and came from a Samantha Walker digikit called ‘Honey Golden Sun’ available at http://www.jessicasprague.com/. I also printed it out on the same very pale beige coloured pearlescent card and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it looked; it printed out with lovely gold highlights. I took some plain white heavy cardstock and cut one of the ‘Spellbinders Grand labels 23’ and embossed it with the ‘Vintage Dressform’ embossing folder from ‘Couture Creations’. I distressed the label 23 by mixing frayed burlap and victorian velvet distress inks and applying them around the edges and to the embossed image. I embellished the image with pearls and felt flowers made from scraps of the felt leftover from cutting the larger felt flowers on the card. I used two of the layered swirls from ‘Heartfelt Creations’ to embellish the sides of the labels 23 and cut a tag from one of the Spellbinders ‘Blossom Tags and Accents’ designed by Samantha Walker; this was used for my sentiment. I added a bow from some nice white cotton crochet ribbon in my stash and a pearl brad attached through the centre of a small flower cut from the smallest of the anemone flower toppers (Spellbinders). I also decorated the inside and back of the card but I will probably show you those tomorrow. Take care and bye for now. Love lilygee xxx.
