Hello and happy Friday to you! To all the American readers, Happy 4th July :)
This month over at Craft for the Craic our new challenge is
Our challenges are open to ANYTHING crafty or arty - cardmaking, scrapbooking, altered art, crochet, knitting, sewing, cake decorating, painting, drawing, candle making, jewellery making, whatever makes you craft or be creative we would like to see it!
I was recently commissioned to create a card for a retirement. They wished to have the Catherine McAuley quote on the card, and if I could incorporate the celtic knot design also.
This is the A4 finished size card I made:
Although I would normally be a HUGE fan of purple, lately I am LOVING neutrals, especially with a little splash of yellow thrown in ;)
I heat embossed a strip of cream card, and used my Martha Stewart punch to create the border. Using my beloved honeycomb folder to emboss some kraft board, I layered up the printed paper background. I die cut some music paper to fit in within the irridescent brown card that was punched from a We R Memory's punch.
The Celtic Knot was die cut out, and the edges were roughened. I decorated a chipboard with some flat backed pearls, flowers and some skeleton leaves behind it.
I put some lace as a horizontal border, and then used some buttons and pearls from my stash to embellish. I die cut the quote from Catherine McAuley and stuck it on with foam pads to give a bit of depth.
