Resource - Materials - Method

Jem's Designs "Clearly Bowed - The Seamstress" cd from http://www.jemsdesigns.co.uk/

Super Smooth white card

Gold peel off borders

Finger-lift tape

Pinflair gel

Crystal adhesive gems

Triple pearl hat pins

Lace ribbon

all from my crafty stash

Spellbinder dies - Scalloped Ovals

Olive 25mm Olive Green Tea Roses

from Wild Orchid Crafts

I printed a background from the cd onto one side of an A3 sheet, flipped it over and printed an image of this shaped card from the cd after resizing it in my MCS graphics programme. This gave me a printed background for the insert right away. I then cut around the shape and folded in half to form this 6x9" card. I used fine gold peel off borders around the shaped edge to highlight against the back of the card. I then printed the main image out another twice and decoupaged the front of the card. Then, using the gorgeous lace backgrounds from the cd, I printed out an A4 sheet of card, placed my own text on it and then cut the ovals using my dies. These were then simply glued in place to form an insert feature and the sentiment tag. Flowers, hat pins, ribbon and gems were added to complete this design.

I hope you like this as much as I do!

I would love to have your comments, please.

Thank you for visiting, and, as always,

Haste ye back!

  9. You are one class act Sheenagh!! Another awe inspiring creation!!! I can be sassy tooooooo, but not the red hair though!!! Love the shape and the colours too. Never would have thought that putting these muted colours together would work sooooo well. Great embellishments and adore the bling on the hat!! 'K' xxx
