Well, hello there….. I’m finally blogging on my new site! So, hello, nice to see you…. and to celebrate this special occasion I have this weeks entry into the Global Design Project!
Actually…. its more of a double celebration, seeing as it is my 2nd Wedding Anniversary today! Yay…. I managed 24 months without James wanting (or trying) to kill me! I am taking this as a massive success…. and I do hope it continues a little longer!
As a card maker, and seeing as this weeks GDP challenge was totally meant to spur me into action, I thought I should make a card for James to celebrate… I will update you later as to whether he has bought (or made) me one!
Now… a anniversary card for a guy, is a little tricky, but I kept it neutral and I think it works! The Background is stamped using the Sheet Music Stamp set and Smoky Slate ink. To create the effect I didnt ink the whole stamp… but dabbed my ink pad down a couple of times in the middle. Although they are hard to see, I then embossed the heart die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits into the card stock. I should mention at this point that I used Thick Whisper White rather than standard weight to ensure it embossed cleanly.
The card was then completed with a diamond die cut from Silver Glimmer Paper, Leaves die cut from Vellum and embossed with the Hexagon 3D Embossing Folder, loops of Silver Metallic Thread, that cute sentiment (from Oh So Eclectic!) and a trio of Metallic Enamel Shapes.
Your wondering about those flowers… they are lovely aren’t they! Yes, they are fake… think they cost a total of £2.50 off ebay…. and they were (are) my wedding bouquet. I LOVE them, and the sit in a vase in my lounge normally…. but this photo needed some colour, and I thought they were fitting!
What do you think of the new blog look? I am in LOVE!
