Not long and it will be the weekend. I am looking forward to the weekend as I am off to the Farnborough Craft show and I have been promised some storage for my crafty stash. We have been measuring and we know what will fit in the space we have. I do hope it will make me more organised.
This card is for a commission and I started it before I became ill but I had to leave it alone for a while. When I was ill I found it very difficult to be creative things just didn't seem to turn out right. Today I managed to finish it at last.
The colour for a 45th Wedding Anniversary is Sapphire so I chose to make this card with pearlised royal blue card. There is a page on this blog which gives the measurements and scoring guide to make this type of card.
This shows the position of the slats and that the back panel says Mum and Dad.
The panel at the front.
The side panels were embossed to add texture and interest.
This shows the numbers and the flowers. The flowers were made with the Spellbinder die set Blossom Three a flat backed pearl was added to the centre of each.
There you have it I hope the lady who ordered it likes it. It will fit into an 8" x 8" envelope. It still fascinates me that this type of card will fold flat for an envelope.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
