Good morning all. Hope everyone's ticketty is very boo.
Thank you for your kind comments on my cascading heart. It was a true labour of love, I can tell you.
Now, today's card is my DT creation for MAWTT and team A's theme this time has been set by our lovely Christine and is..................................drumroll....................
I hope you can pop and see what the rest of the DT have come up with and it would be lovely to see some familiar names entering the challenge.
I made this card for the friend who lost his wife recently (the funeral I mentioned a couple of weeks ago). As he is in his late 80s, I just wanted to create something quite plain with the sentiment being the focal point.
I thought the background stamp and embossing folder complimented each other and went down the subtle mica route for the backdrop.
Platinum card (Lime Tree)
Just Rite Garden Gate background stamp
Embossalicious embossing folder
Cream pearl mica
London Fog Memento Dewdrop
Teeny silver bling
I tried to capture the sheen of the mica on this shot as its very subtle.
This was a 6x6 embossing folder (if anyone knows the name of it, I'd be grateful as I couldn't find the packaging) yet the card is A5. I'm a bit of a naughty gal and cut the hinges on my smaller embossing folders so I can easily extend the pattern if I need to. The grooves slot into the embossing so its not been a problem and I just use removable tape as the hinges if I want to use it normally (hope that makes sense),
So, get yourselves over to MAWTT and join in the fun.
Ooh, before I forget, Jennie the apricot card I used on the narcissus card was from the famous Lidl pack that we go nuts for when they have them in stock. Its deeper in colour than peach.
See you all soon......be good!
