SCROLL TO THE END OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE
Why is it every time I make a beautiful card it never comes out good in photos and when I make a mediocre card, it comes out just the way it looks IRL?!!
I made this card yesterday based on the colour story at Playdate Cafe. My laziness went right out of the window when I saw their colour palette! I had to make something beautiful. I want that CUP! lol
Talking about the cup, CONGRATULATIONS to all Indians for winning the World Cup! I cant truly explain how delighted I was to see Suchin Tedulkar holding the cup finally! I adore the guy!
The pattern paper is computer generated. The flower is handmade. The doily and butterflies are Silhouette cut. The silver borders look grey in the picture but that is silver border lining on the pattern paper, white card base and the outer edge of the doily. I added hand stitching along the PP border as well.
There are lots of pearls on this one eh? It doesn't show in the photos but the doily, butterflies and some petals of the flower are quite shimmery as I painted these with white pearl paint. Added a bit of silver net and light blue pearly “filaments” behind the flower to fill in the space and balance the card.
This card is BEAUTIFUL in person. One of my favs! This one is for my mother. She is a super mom! Apparently my mother liked this card too, she and my dad are the critics and they tell me whats lacking in my cards. But this one, she LOVED.
Check out the list of challenges I will be entering this card to. I hope I win at least one! LOL
