Another Card and an Idea for You
Hello everyone.....I just wanted to say at the outset that some of you may be thinking the cards I post all have a sameness about them....the reason....all the cards are for customers who are expecting to have all the elements you see on a card - they are all for different people so while you see some, but not all, of them obviously each person has only one card (well, sometimes it can be up to 3 for someone, a situation I don't particularly like but however).
Yesterday I received some lace from www.fabricsandfancies.co.uk http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/35mm-Ivory-Guipure-Scallop-Edge-Lace-Ribbon-Trim-Metre-/150761321674?pt=UK_Crafts_Cardmaking_Scrapbooking
I wanted to show you how it looks on this card. The ribbon roses are in pale peach and as it is a 50th Birthday I wanted to add a little gold as one usually associates gold with 50!
It is beautiful cotton lace and I toyed around with some of it after finishing the card and trimmed 7 motifs and attached them together with hot glue by gluing each motif in the centre - I started out with 5 and that would do 'in a pinch' but I don't do 'in a pinch' things so went on to 7 which I think looks so good. I do apologise for the photograph...neither I nor DH can get a decent in focus snap of this delicate bit of lace...so sorry...we have tried a lot of colours behind it and flash, no flash.....nothing works!!
That's it for now...time for lunch on this very sunny but cold Saturday!
