Good afternoon my lovelies I hope you’re all having a fine and dandy weekend for me it’s a busy, busy one and exciting but I can’t much about that yet so stay tuned I promise when I can tell you, you’ll be the first to know (hehehehee I’m such a tease I’m so excited)
Anyways well I have to say I have failed miserably in my attempt to get my Mother in Laws birthday cards done I only managed to make 1 yes you read correctly ONE!! How shameful is that and I had to resort to buying her a card from myself and Phil and also one from Amy (I am hanging my head very low in shame) but in my defence I did have a nasty tummy bug last week which made me feel rather yukkie although I should have had the cards done before then. Oh well I best start making next years now so I know I will not run out of time (0:
So today as it my wonderful Mom in laws birthday I will share the card with you that I DID get made
My lovely Dad in Law asked me a couple of weeks ago if I would make one from him for her so that is what I will show you today AND shock horror it’s not an 8x8” card either (oooooohhhhhhh)
I have no idea what the name of this style of card is although I’m sure there is one but here it is anyway
In size it’s just a little larger than A5 but as you can see when open is quite deep
The papers are from my ever growing batch of digital freebies which I printed onto thick linen matt paper
The image is as you can see another beautiful Art Deco lady and I have totally gone to town with her head dress. I’ve used glitter and micro beads for this and then a large seed bead for her ring well a girl this classy has to have the bling!!! Then for her pearl necklace I added liquid pearl drops in a petal pink(I also added a drop for her earrings too).
I also added glitter to her dress and parasol
The flowers I made using organza ribbon yes the same as in the tutorial a few weeks ago but on the larger flower I added petals to back of it which I made out of a thin muslin material which I coloured with spun sugar and worn lipstick DI reinkers. The material was cut into appx 2” squares then folded into triangles to make the petals then attached to a length of cotton you need about 5 or 6 per flower.
To finish off the card I added 3 gems to each side section of the card to just take away the plainness
For the insert as per I used the same papers from the front and also used the image to tie it all together then added a lovely verse
And that is pretty much it I hope you like it and I will see you all very soon I hope
Before I go I will just with my amazing Mom in Law a very happy birthday and I leave you with a list of challenges I would like to enter
