Last but one Christmas card..I promise! This is the card that I made for my Mum. I used a shortfall front card and papers from Dovecraft.I added a border to the front of the card, punched from gold mirri then wrapped with thin green ribbon. The vintage picture was downloaded from a freebie site on the web and printed onto white Bazzill which gives an amazing finish.I cut a segment from each corner of the picture using scalloped scissors then mounted the picture onto a piece of gold mirri. A brad was added to three of the corners then the panel was adhered to a piece of green paper and more mirri card.The completed panel was adhered to the front of the card with foam tape. I created two flower arrangements for the panel from full roses and buds and added some punched ivy leaves and some pearl strands. I cut a tag from pearlised card and added a sentiment computer generated onto Safmat. 'Mum' and a fancy corner were cut from gold mirri and adhered above and below the panel on the inside back of the card.
Well, I've just launched myself into non-Christmas mode, which I have to say is hard to get out of, but new ideas with new carts are flowing. Some I'll be able to show, others will be for my workshops starting in the New Year so they'll be delayed in posting, but I look forward to sharing with you!
