Pan Pastels Challenge 40

I've got crafting withdrawal this week, there is just so much that I have to do, 60 years of paperwork to look through (my Uncle who recently passed away lived in the family home and hoarded receipts, bills etc for many years) it has bought to light some interesting things, like family birth certificates and the like. I didn't think I would be taking part in any challenges for the next few weeks, but I remembered that I had this card that I made a couple of weeks ago, but didn't get around to showing on the blog. It fits perfectly for the challenge on the Pan Pastel Challenge blog which this week is wedded bliss, and what says it more than a Golden Wedding card. I used Debbi Moore's Glitter and Glitz Paris CD and an 8x8 white card base for this card. I printed the backing paper onto glossy photo paper, which makes the gold effect look brighter and mounted onto some gold mirri card. The topper is printed onto matt photo paper and then placed onto the card with foam pads. I added a border and place gold coloured flat backed pearls onto it. The flowers were a cream colour which I sprayed with gold glimmer mist sprays and added some centres that I made myself using bead end caps and flat backed pearls, and the leaves are a crealie die. Lastly I added the sentiment which was printed on a laser printer and then put through the foiling machine with gold foil.




Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  2. Such an elegant card - just right for an anniversary. Bead caps are great for flower centres aren't they? Good luck with sorting the paperwork - been ther, done that and it isn't always easy!
