Now, today's card was made at Nesta's request, to send to her niece as an RSVP to her first wedding in August (this is the Hindu Blessing, the English legal one is in October. . . . .one to arrange was more than enough for me). Her niece has a purple and gold theme, hence the engagement card I made (click here to be reminded) and the 30th birthday card (click here).
The invite was very similar in style so I tried to keep it in the same vein.
Its a 6x6 cream card base topped with a gold mirror card layer. I then cut the largest of SB Captivating Squares from the centre of a slightly smaller piece of purple PMD card.
I ran this through the GC with a mask I had made using The Striplet, to emboss it and foam padded this to the gold layer.
Close up of the embossing. . . . . . . . .
For the centre, I cut a piece of purple card using The Striplet, as per below, and cut a circle from it (with scissors as I'm working on getting a set of plain circle nesties). . . . . . .
I have saved the frame portion to use on something else (coming to a Pond near you soon).
I then cut a small piece using one of the SB Blossom sets and drew Lord Ganesh on this in gold gel pen freehand (sorry, the gold looks more like silver on the photo).
I also went round the edge of the embossing with the pen too. Apparantly, its auspicious to have Lord Ganesh on cards for weddings.
I then foam padded this to the filigree circle and then glued this flat to the mirror card. A bit of purple bling added here and there and as Gordon Ramsay would say, "Done!"
Well that's me for today folks. Its my birthday so I've managed to get an earlier shift today (couldn't have the day off as its a busy week) so I can at least have the afternoon to eat cheesy poofs and have fun.
Hope you all have a great day too.
