GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE.
Hello hello there my Blogville buddies… my room is a kitchen sink at the moment. I have started so many cards and finished none of them. I did however manage to finish one card today. This is an “Engagement Invitation” based on the sketch from Digis with Attitude. First take a look at the card then we can begin with all the screaming…
Again, it’s a cellphone pic… so bear with me.
EeEEEEEeee aaaAAAaa I know… that is a LOT of glitter, O.K, more than A LOT… But this is how our weddings are! Lots of sparkle and shine! There is never too much bling in this part of the world when it comes to weddings and related occasions!
Anyway this person is wearing steel grey dress on her engagement, hence the matching invitation.
I have glittered the embossed section of the card and sprayed some lacquer on it to make it stick, it has given the embossed flap a very different look than the base (which are same by the way).
Here is another view against the light, so you can see what I am talking about.
Seeee… it looks nice right?? It looks better with the lacquer… the lacquer muted the glitter somewhat and gave the paper a pearlescent touch. Thank God!
Don’t know why the flower is looking fluorescent, it is really not… in this picture it is giving off light on its own! LOL Oh I so want my camera!!!
The flower is handmade. Never made this one before. Looks good, too big though.
The card looks beautiful… I had my doubts when she chose this particular folder… I showed her the birds and swirls one… thinking that the lesser the glitter there is, the better it will look.
The light orange swirly border is a diecut.
Will show you the complete package soon, till then… hugs and love!
P.S Forgot to add the sentiment :(
