Hi there, everyone!
Today, I’d like to show you a congratulations card I have recently made for someone close to my heart, a dear friend of mine. She made some changes in her professional life and we are very proud of her. So, a great reason once more to make her something special. Something that will accompany our wishes.
With this card I used a different technique for the background. I’ve got a very nice floral stencil, the 6” x 6″ Doily Flower made by Heidi Swapp, from one of my favourite shops in UK. Set it on a watercolour paper and sprayed it with green and blue ink. Trimmed it to fit the card base and the first layer of the cover which was a pink card I chose from my craft stash.
I added 2 strips of card, one pink and one cream, onto the bottom part of the cover. Then, I went for some nice pastel blue organza ribbon to give a soft and elegant look. The ‘Congratulations’ sentiment was stamped with Artiste pigment ink – pearlescent dusky rose on a watercolour tag. I also tied the ribbon into a bow to add a bit of extra dimension.
Some pink and pearl gems were added too, to give a little sparkle and to complete the dimension of the card.
Hope you like it and many thanks in advance for your comments.
