Good evening, my crafting friends. I've been AWOL again - sorry! It's just that I have so much design work that I can't share at times, so I have to fit in a commission now and again that I can share with you. And this is one for a Golden Wedding Anniversary.
However, before I do that, may I share some exciting news, please?
Some of you may have seen this on my fb status, but for those who haven't, here goes...
My Craft Studio has recently undertaken a change of direction and have moved from Create & Craft to QVC. As such, their product range is being increased, but the focus on card samples has also shifted and they have streamlined their Design Team to only 3 for the whole of the UK. I am thrilled that I have been selected as one of those, with my 2 co-members being the lovely Linda Trott and Liz Mahner, both of whom I consider to be friends. How lucky are we? This is a huge vote of confidence in our crafting skills and I hope over time to share some of the new work here with you.
Until then, back to my commission.
The subtle background is from MCS cd, My Stencil Studio, and is printed on to 2 sheets of Craft Creations A4 Hi-5 Pearl card, Europa Ivory, and joined before being cut using Spellbinders -Grand Labels One. Using my Craft Dragon I then stamped the sentiment using Inkylicious stamp - Special Day - and Adirondack ink pad - Caramel. This and a small piece of gold mirri card were then cut using Spellbinders - Label One . The stamped layer was inked with the same Caramel ink to give definition around the edges. The small sentiment tag was made by foiling on my Craft Dragon and then cut using Spellbinder - Grommet tags - and then inked around the edges.
Gold mirri card was cut using Spellbinder - Floral Dolly Motifs - and a memory Box die - La Rue Flourish - for embellishments. I cut the flourish in half as the base for the floral embellishments which used flowers from WOC and my crafty stash. Gold adhesive gems complete this design.
