2nd post today as I'm now up-to-date! On the blog anyway, a few things to do "behind the scenes" so to speak!
We have a new challenge for you today at the Alphabet Challenge Blog from my lovely teamie Tammy! We're back at the start of the alphabet and the theme Tammy has chosen is...
A for Always & Forever!
Great theme for today! I hope you had a nice Valentines day whether you got a card today or not!
I made my card a while back for my auntie and uncle's 25th wedding anniversary. On the day, instead of a bouquet, the bride, bridesmaids and flowergirls all carried fans! Gotta love the style back then! lol! So in homage to that I made my card like this...
And when it is opened up it is a twisted easel card
The stamps I used are ones I've had for ages from Elusive Images (they are now Chocolate Baroque) and are paisley peacock feathers. I heat embossed the images in silver on white card and in white on silver card, cut each one out and alternated the colours to make a fan shape. The sentiment is computer generated and the font is Laine Day. I dry embossed a diamond shape on the background card, using my scoring board, to add a little bit of interest.
The inside has a smaller version of the stamp and the "25" is from a Pink Gem Design stamp set. You can see the diamond embossed background better here.
I used Spellbinder circle and large scalloped circle dies and the gems are from my stash.
Please pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT have made and join in too!
