Hi Everyone, I've been missing in action, with lots keeping me busy behind the scenes. However I have done a little card making. My "local" SiL (the rest live in England) asked me if I would make 3 cards the same for friends of hers, all 85 years of age this year. I asked her what she wanted and she said flowers, so this was my interpretation of what she wanted. I'm glad to say she was pleased.

paper and wreath - CreativeFabrica
gilding flakes - Cosmic Shimmer
glue pen - Sakura Quickie Glue Pen
gold mirror card - The Range
ribbon - stash
Glaze - Novo Crystal Drops
Silhouette Cameo 2
This was the process
I cut and print from Silhouette Cameo, 3 layers of the centre wreath, I went over the top layer with a glue pen on parts of the flowers. I then ventured to the gold leaf and pressed it into the glue. I should have put it into a container, lets say I was finding gold for a few days! Next I layered all the wreath layers and glued them together.
I printed the background layer and cut to size and added to gold mirror card and then to the base card. I added 3D gloss to the 85 for added shine. The wreath was added to the card and a bow placed on it.
here are the layers before attaching and adding the gilding flakes
here you can see the finished result of the glazed 85 and the result of the flakes
here you can see the layers, which I didn't 3D for the sake of postage costs, it was an 8x8 card, with 3D the cost would have been expensive shall we say.
This was the insert
We had good news this week about nearing the end of lockdown, let's hope we can get to "normal life in the next few months. Although I don't see it becoming normal before the end of Summer - ever the optimist?
In the meantime, keep safe and keep wearing your mask. Oh! yes over your nose too! - Please.
