I finally finished the card that was lying on my desk a few WOYWWs ago!
Yes, I know it took a while, but I knew there was something missing and I couldn't figure out how to fix it.
In the end, I added the three tiny coiled roses above the monogram and I think I solved the problem.
This was a commission for a lady celebrating her 70th - now I don't think everyone really wants huge numbers screaming their age at them, so I try to be a bit more subtle about such things. Lift the flap with the monogram on it and there's a little more personal message inside to mark the special day.
These gorgeous papers are from the "Lost and Found" collection from My Mind's Eye - they are truly beautiful, with lovely designs and an ample amount of glitter!
I made the little "secret message" piece by folding the paper in half then cutting with a Nesties die - make sure you have the fold lower than one edge of the die or you'll get two bits instead of one!
The monogram is Robo cut, then glittered with Stickles, then when that was dry I added a coat of Glossy Accents.
The flowers are a mix of ready made wired flowers (Creative Treasures), a handmade paper rose and some coiled paper roses
I've also used ribbon, lace and tiny gems from my stash
I just adore that gorgeous lace!
Thank you for popping by, I hope you'll come again soon - if you add me to your "following" list I'd be thrilled to bits!Back sooooon with more stuff
