Good Afternoon Everyone! I hope that you have all had a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend. Such a wet day today mind you, I hope that you haven’t had as much as we have here in Essex. Today’s card and box were made for Jade, a young friend mine to give to her special friend Nathalie. This card is different from my usual style as it includes a photograph therefore, this has become the focal point. I hope you like it, my friend Jade was delighted.
The card base is scalloped and measures 8″x8″. I have mat and layered green and pale blue cardstock. The pale blue cardstock has been embossed with Sue Wilson’s (Creative Expressions) Heart Lattice folder. The large circle, which has been cut from dark green card is again Sue Wilson’s (Creative Expressions) Italian Collection, Decorative Frames. The heart border is made using a Martha Stewart punch. The swirl is from Doohickey Dies, Leaf & Swirl. The leaves are a selection from Tattered Lace, namely, Hosta, Fiddlehead Fern and Foxgloves. The flowers are fashioned used Marianne’s Chinese Rose die. The heart I have used on the box is Heartfelt Timeless Amour. The ribbons and pearls are from my own crafty collection. All the best everyone, hugs for now, Annie xx
