Hello again, my blogging friends. Back so soon, I hear you ask...it's a bit unusual I grant you, but I have managed to fit in another commission today. This one is for a "girly" 40th - so I hope this fits the brief. See what you think and perhaps let me know by leaving a comment, please.
It's from disc 2 of Jem's Designs cd "Elegance"
It's a 7.5" square card using Craft Creations Hi-5 Pearl Cryogen White card with a background printed from the cd. I printed out an A5 topper to which I added name and age and 2 small twisted toppers all of which I resized in MCS graphics programme. I layered the twisted topper to give some dimension and backed both this and the large topper with heavy silver glitter card just to give added sparkle and bling. I threaded narrow blue ribbon through the top layer of the twisted topper and added a couple of pearl hat pins. The sentiment was foiled using my Craft Dragon and silver foil on to white card, then cut using Spellbinder die - Grommet Tags - this one just so fits the size of the foiling dies perfectly so you may see it used often. I then inked through the die using Distress Ink - Stormy Sky - to give the coloured centre and then edged it with the same ink. I thought this was an interesting result and I really like the effect. Using a piece of the silver glitter card I cut the two corners using a Memory Box die - Madeira Corner - and glued them into place in opposite corners. The top right became the base for my flowers which are from WOC and my crafty stash. Adhesive gems complete the embellishment of this design.
