.... while Ben was staying with us over half-term he asked me to make him a number of cards. You've seen the Father's Day card that I made for him for Kim (his father) based on a wine theme. Well, Ben also asked me to make a birthday card for his step-mum, Arrianne. I was more than happy to oblige. Arrianne is a wonderful woman who looks after and loves my son. So this card is for her - it's her birthday today - I just hope that Ben remembers to give her the card!!
It was so hard to take a decent photo of this card - the mirri card is soooo reflective!! And if you look carefully at the picture you can just about see me taking this photo!! I decided to make a really simple and elegant card for Arrianne. I lightly sponged the base card with some distress ink and then added a swirly frame in the same colour - you can hardly see it in the picture, but it's really pretty! The frame and topper are both from Kanban - they specialise in deeply embossed and foiled card. The card is actually gold and purple, although it looks a bit like copper in this picture. I think the mirri card must have picked up some of the wood tone reflected on to the card!!
Card: Kanban - Colour Textile Collection - Floral Frames & Toppers (PCT9782)
Ink: Distress - Antique Linen
Stamp: La Blanche
I hope to have another card to show you later this afternoon - I've an idea for the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge - just hope that I can finish it in time for the deadline!! See you later!
