It's already time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's and this time the challenge has been chosen and hosted by our lovely Kym. The theme is Silver, gold & white and I loved making this card. As soon as I saw Kym's theme I knew I wanted to use 3D Flowers. I think it's because of the gold flowers that I used on the poinsettia wreath that I made for last Christmas. (Click here if you want to see it.) I did the flowers slightly differently this time though - for the wreath, I printed onto the back of the mirri and embossed the lines with an embossing tool before cutting them out but this time, inspired by the lovely Irene, I printed onto the metallic side and heat embossed with fine detail ep in gold and silver as appropriate. I've done gold on gold and silver on silver but I think it would also look good the other way around.
My bp is white pearlescent and I've also used a strip of this instead of ribbon throught the Marianne Design die cut. I cut my two circles out using the robo and added gold mirri 'brads' to all the scallops.
Of course it's been somewhat of a challenge trying to get a decent photo with all the shine, but it's one of those cards that feels well worth it. It's already on it's way to a rather special friend for her birthday.
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
- Sketch 'n' stash - the sketch, neglected - robo
- The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
- Crafty Creations - Heat it up (embossing)
- Pixie Cottage - sketch and/ or Flowers (I've just used the flowers)
