Hi Everyone, I have a lot of things going on at the moment, so if I seem a little short in my comments please forgive me, I am trying to keep up with everything, but things will inevitably be delayed sometimes.
With all that's going on here and Prince Philip's funeral, I have been a bit down in the dumps, especially on Saturday and seeing Her Majesty the Queen seemingly so alone, so many people this year being in the same predicament made it so poignant.
Well as the Prince said "get on with it".
My card is a celebration , which was lovely to make and going back to their wedding day and thinking, where the heck have all those years gone. Anyhow this is for my Godson and his wife. I hope they like it.
I started off with cutting out a leaf background with a die and some card and using it as a stencil, using a light grey ink, I didn't want any colour as it's a Pearl Anniversary. I went around the edges of the card, then stamped the sentiment.
Off to my electronic die cutting machine to cut the heart, I cut 4 layers to have it stand proud from the card. I used one layer for the placement of the leaves and coloured the same ink through it, I took the shape off and painted slightly outside the line, so there were no white edges to the leaf inserts. The heart with all layers was added and I placed the pearls, which I have had for years.
