Anyway today I have an anniversary card made for my Son and DIL last week.
The base card is a pearlised white 15cm square and I stamped the greeting with black memento ink before embossing with Couture Creations EF, Tied Together. The embossing didn't cover the entire front of the card so I cut a lacy border from a snippet of mauve pearl card with a Joanna Sheen Signature die and wrapped it round with a very narrow purple ribbon before fixing it to the fold of the card. I then used another short length of the ribbon to tie a bow over it. The circle frame was cut from another snippet of the mauve card with a Memory Box die, and stuck in place to frame the greeting. On reflection I should have stamped the greeting onto a separate piece of card as it looks a bit faded on the pearl card. I think it looked better IRL though, than it does in the photo. The flowers and leaves are all made with Britania dies. I used a snippet of green pearl card for the leaves, and snippets of white satin paper from Joanna Sheen for the flowers which I coloured with Promarkers before making up. I used a gel glue to fix these in place and self adhesive tiny pearls to embellish the embossed background.
I am going to enter this at Pixies Snippets Playground - Just use Snippets.
