So here is my commission for my first non friend or family customer! A pearl wedding card.
I started with a pastel green pearlescent card blank (think this is about 5x5 inches). I then added a strip of the muted floral paper (my favourite - Serif Picnic in the Park) then added a panel of cream pearlescent cardstock, which I punched using the Martha Stewart French Scroll as I thought it was quite a romantic edge. Then I wrapped some beautiful flocked ribbon (I did buy this especially for the card and love love love it!). On the pearlescent cream card I stamped the word Love twice (the other is at the bottom but you can't see it because of the reflection). Then I created a tag and added the floral paper on top with the punched edge. Then finally added the pearl and rose embellishment - again special purchase - and the two greeny pearl gems at the bottom.
Well I say finally in complete denial because I actually had to make this card twice. The first time, I handwrote the names and the Pearl Wedding but it just looked wrong and not very professional. So I took everything apart again, then typed the text onto another piece of the cream card using CraftArtist to get the positioning about right. Then layered it all up again! Such fun!
But the final result is great and I am really pleased with it, fingers crossed so will my customer tomorrow.
That's it for tonight - need to get myself off to bed.
Night night all! Happy Crafting!
