How's this one for an antidote to all the male creations of the past few weeks! Definitely feminine - well, I hope so! LOL. This one is for a good friend of mine who has a birthday in a couple of weeks - she is positively 'ancient' as she is a whole week & a half older than me, LOL.
Using the adorable Saturated Canary image called 'Ava' (coloured with Promarkers), I created 'oodles' of layers to go onto my pearlescent card-base, created using my Silhouette Cameo to give me a gorgeously lacy feel to add to all the girlishness. For some of these layers I also distressed the edges just a little & as you may have spotted, also paper-pierced, the odd one too. (Yes, pierced not pieced this time around).
Peeping out behind one of those layers is a tag & even this has lots more layers of it's own. Firstly, I added a frame to it, cutting out the oval middle & then added an initial to layer underneath so it would show through. I then created a layered back for the tag featuring a sentiment - finishing it all off with a nice bit of lace from Fantastic Ribbons. The layer immediately in front of the tag has foam tape on it to give no only a bit of dimension but also a place for the tag to 'sit' so it stays in the same position until it is taken out. I then made the three flowers to embellish the front & dotted the 3 clear crystal gems to their allotted corners.
For the inside of my card I layered up once more - though not as many, using matching papers - adding my friend's initial once more, this time to a lightened version of the image so I can write who the card is from over the top of it just before I send it. I then popped on three more flowers as embellishment - but this time 'flat' ones or the card wouldn't close! LOL. The two smaller inner layers of each of these flowers were not cut using the Cameo this time but I got out my now little-used Fiskars punches for those. A couple more gems & voila!
Hope you have a great week, everyone & thanks for visiting my blog.
