This time it was another colleague,
Hollie, who requested a card for her friend
Samantha's big day.
My design brief was, hearts & roses,
Cream & deep red & to include a phrase
& a verse. Quite a lot to go on.
Here's what I came up with..
Die cuts by Tonic Studio
Embossing Folder - Vintage Floral (roses)
by crafters Companion.
I added the phrase like a banner.
I used Art Extravagance Texture Paste
by Finnabair /Prima in Platinum crackle to
age this Tim Holtz die cut bookplate.
Verse created in Silhouette Cameo design software.
I then printed it onto cardstock before running
through the big shot.
Finally, I made a box for her to put it in
& decorated it with more tonic studio die cuts.
I saw this box on this You Tube Video by LiveLoveScrap.
I just had to give it a go.
Very pleased with the finished result.
I have been very busy, reading,
learning & playing in my art journals.
Nothing complete that I am able to share just yet.
I am also creating a mini book for a colleague, Krystal
who recently had her first baby.
That I will be sharing soon.
