Good Morning, hoping all is well in your world on this Friday morning. Here in Essex it’s a little cooler but we can cope with that!! It’s not raining and the sun is in the sky. I have a Man Card to share with you this morning, I made this for a friend of mine last weekend. I struggled, as ever, trying to make it a celebration card as Joe was 60 but not overdoing it on the embellishments, not sure if I managed it or not!!!!!!
This card measures 8″x8″. The card is from Papermill and the papers are Maja Design. I have used Cheery Lynn’s Chicken Wire die for some texture on the bottom half of the card and on the topper layer. I punched a border using EK Success Calligraphy Scroll and ran this along the top edge of the Chicken Wire die. The sentiment has been typed and printed out and then die cut using one of the frames from Creative Expressions, Californian Collection, Decorative Frames (Set B). Beneath this I have used Marianne Creatables Flower Doiley. I then cut a circle from the teal coloured card, using Spellbinders Circles and placed it behind the doily to enhance the “laciness”. The teal leaves are cut from Marianne Creatables Leaves, the brown leaves are Marianne Decorative Elegance the white “pointy” fronds are cut from the small die that accompanies Anja’s Large Oval and the swirls are Cheery Lynn’s Mini Flourish. I have added a metal flower and placed a teal pearl in the centre, these items together with the ribbon are from my own crafty stash. See you all again very soon my friends, hugs Annie xx
