Little Firecracker.....

Jem's Designs
Fairy Cobblers cd
This post introduces my new Luxury Signature Cards range.

This is a commissioned 40th Birthday card which will be, as always, tissue wrapped and boxed.

It is 7.25" square as I have managed to source boxes to take this size of finished card - until now my commissions have always been A5 finished size - so let's see how successful the larger luxury range will be.

I have used Cryogen White card from Craft Creations Pearl card range and made a toning pink base colour by using the crop feature in MCS graphics programme to select a small piece of colour from the main image and stretching it to A4 size. I printed two A4 sheets on both sides for the base card and another piece sized for a layer. I also printed out two different backgrounds from the cd and cut away the corners using Fiskars rounding scissors, then these were all matted and layered to the front of the card with different depths of 3d foam tape or finger lift tape. I then cut a border from silver mirri board using Spellbinders edgeabilities - Classic Petal - and glued it to the front.

The printed topper was also matted onto silver mirri board and I cut out corners and a flourish using Spellbinder dies - Twisted Metal Tags and Accents - and glued the corners under each corner before placing it on the card. The fairy image was printed out again and was then decoupaged using Pinflair glue and highlighted with MCS Embellishment Attic Crystal Glitter.

I used the flourish in the floral embellishment along with pearl sprays, white and pink small flowers from my crafty stash and the beautiful large baby pink rose and pearl crown hat pin from my luscious new goodies from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I printed my own text using MCS graphics onto a blank sentiment tag from the cd.

For the insert I have made a pocket for a gift card/cheque which I embossed along the edge using a Glitter Girls board (which I've had for so long I can't remember what it's called) and then cut the scalloped edge. I also added a small tag from the cd with narrow red satin ribbon and my own printed text.

I hope you like what you see, and I would love to know what you think of my work - does it deserve the "luxury" label, please?

Thanks for visiting -please pop in again soon.
