I haven't had much time to blog lately but I thought I would pop in quickly tonight and share a card that I made a week or two ago. It's a different style for me but I wanted to use these beautiful Graphic 45 papers that I had won in a competition.
A friend of mine was turning fifty and I thought it needed a special sort of card. I edged everything with black soot DI and matted on black card to make it stand out. The flowers are Prima and the Guipure lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts ( I've been hoarding it) Can you see the black rosette trim, it's not very clear in the photo but it is gorgeous IRL. It was the first outing for the X Cut rosette die too and I thought it made a great addition to the design. I decided to make it into an interactive card so the two tag tops you can see peeking out can be slid out from their pockets and they each have a message to the recipient on the back.
Hope you are having a good evening and not too much rain and thunder where you are. We have had two very heavy, torrential rain falls today.
See you soon,
