I hope you are all well and that the weather is being kind to you. Right down here in the south we haven't had any snow so far but it is wet.
The curate at our church asked me if I would make a card for her friend who is being ordained soon. This is the design I came up with, I must say she was very pleased with the result.
The background card was embossed at my friend's house as I still didn't have my Grand Calibur.
The cross is from a Spellbinders set and I cut it twice once in gold and once in brown and offset them slightly.
I embossed the mat and added pearls made with CS Pearl PVA glue. I left this to dry before I assembled the rest of the card.
The ivy was cut with a Sue Wilson die. It is a two die set and I cut each die twice in cream and twice in gold and I offset the gold and the cream like I did with the cross.
I wasn't sure whether to add the Congratulations or not but as you can see I decide I would.
Look what eventually turned up this week. I haven't used it yet but I will be I have so missed the embossing. I pre-ordered it at the beginning of November I am very pleased it is here now.
So there you have it. I seem to be getting quite a few commissions at the moment. I even managed to sell my husband's Valentine's card - I am a bad wife. I will have to make him an even nicer one.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
