Simon Says Challenge Blog is all about distressing this week.
I am very pleased with how this card turned out after spending an age deciding on a design and what papers to use. It actually looks very classy and am happy to say the lady I have made it for is delighted. It is her parents GWA tomorrow so I hope they like it too.
I think I spent nearly as long making the insert and the wrapper as I did the actual card.
The circle sentiment on the front is gold foiled and boy! what a job I had with it.
Anyone who has done foiling will know that it only works on text printed on a laser printer. Well, as I have only got an inkjet I had to go and use my DD's printer. The first attempt was patchy so another trip to DD's to do it again.
After that performance I decided to print the greeting on the front of the wrapper on my printer just using the gold colour.
The BP is from Audrey Jeanne's Victorian Rose collection a digital download possibly from Gina Miller. I forget cos I got it a long time ago.
The heart at the top is 'sparkled' with Glamour Dust and I made a hat pin to sit amongst the flowers lower down.
Some hand stitching, lots of flowers and a couple of corner peel-offs and taa-daa - done!!!
Some more pics
The DT cards for the Simon Says Challenge are gorgeous and I hope this card is acceptable.
Crikey, what a long post - I'm not usually so chopsy, lol.
