What another beautiful day, hope it lasts, I'm going away next Monday. Anyway, back to today's card.
I am very recently back in touch with a lady I used to work with, eons ago. The wonders and joy of facebook, love it. Well Rose started following my blog and asked if I could make a card for her Auntie's 90th birthday. Well I think 90years warrants a very special card, so I decided to make her an easel book card. Hope she likes it.
I was told her Auntie likes flowers and wee birdies. This image is an MCS one, from the 'Tattered Lace' collection. The template for the book pages and the backing paper are all clipartfairy. I imported the book pages into MCS, varied the sizes, then added the image, a verse and the number 90 to the front page.
The sentiment/stopper, is again the front page, with the wording in the same font as the verse. I added gross grain ribbon in yellow, before assembling it.
The flower is made using the the same backing paper and the spellbinder spiral blossom one, with a floral flourish in white, distressed with Tim Holtz shabby shutters. All the layers and the flower were enhanced with glamour dust and some pearl embellishments were added to finish.
I love this design of card, I think it can be adapted for any occasion, I do hope Rose likes it.
