A Anniversary Card for a Special Friend
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and for the first mount Ive used a piece of white pearlescent card thats been put through my Grand Calibur machine, mind you I had to get hubby to remove the front lip as the stupid Spellbinders created the embossing folder to wide for it otherwise (I reakon theyve made the later models wider than mine) and I then wrapped a gold ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then used some gold mirri board and cut out the large heart with a Cheery Lynn die, this was then woven through the ribbon and then stuck to the card. I then placed the embossed heart in the middle and created a sentiment on my computer and printed it and mounted it on a heart die cut.
To finish of I used several different sized roses and created a floral spray in the top left hand corner, and the final flourish are the yellow pearls in the bottom and top corners. Im now ready to pop it in a envelope to give her tomorrow when I see her at swimming, keep your fingers crossed she likes the result, mind you Ive still got to put a insert it in so Id better start looking through my verses and getting a move on before I forget that to.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
