Took me ages deciding exactly how I wanted this card to look. A retirement card for a lady who apparently is looking forward to doing gardening on retirement.
I had the sentiment and image organised, but couldn't get the placement of all the items right, and knew I wanted to use some ribbon! Then I won a card from Joanna from a C&C show. Just the inspiration I needed. To get the effect, I had to trim the image slightly. My daughter has most of our cuttlebug folders - so improvised as I was doing a flowery theme by running the piece of card through 3 times with a slim folder.
The images are from JS Cottage Garden cd. The sentiment is actually a bookmark, created using the interactive facility. The backing paper is from JS Precious Petals cd.
The bookmark has been used again on the insert, but this time a verse from one of the other bookmarks has been added, as I loved the verse, and the bookmark image adjusted to accommodate the verse. Printed on my favourite Conqueror paper.
I delivered the card to my pal today - and can report back that she was thrilled with it!
Now to tackle the other two orders she has given me!
