Inside the card I stamped a sentiment which is also embossed and added the same circle flower to compliment the front of the card. Some ribbon detail makes is feel really lavish (....that's if a card can feel lavish :)
The ribbon design paper lends itself naturally to paper weaving.......but I wanted it to really shine (literally;). To create the blossom effect I added a Heidi Swapp mask over the weaving and sprayed Latte Glimmer Mist over the mask. Clever, really clever BUT it ended up barely visible - then for the A-HA moment - a fine tip marker to outline the mask design and this enables the eye to complete the picture and see the complete masked image in the busy weaved pattern.
Another problem creeped up as the letters also faded into the vanilla cardstock - same solution! - use a fine liner all around and inside the letters to accentuate the letter stickers. The corner design was cut from some left-over paper to balance the LO and a journal block completes the picture. A few pearls as blossom centres and VOILA - another one bites the dust!
Isn't it amazing how similar the Penny Royale is to my Ouma's dress!! .....and look at that frizzy permed hair - Cool I say:):):)
Watch this space for an awesome calender idea!
Happy weavin' :)
