I’ve created a special card for this special day.
I did some gilding and flower making – I made a frame and forgot to add it to my card, but then added it later. and I like the effect that created.
I may do a picture tutorial on the gilding and flower making for those who haven’t tried these techniques.
The background panel is vellum laid over a piece of designer paper, I really like the soft effect this creates.
A closer look at the flower spray and again with the frame.
N.B. I used Glossy Accents to be sure the flowers stayed in place. I had a strip of leftover gilding which I trimmed to 1/8″ to complement the black of the frame. I think it brought everything together nicely. A few diamonte and sequins finish this card. The leaves are metal filigree elements from my craft stash.
I hope you had time to get crafting on World Card Making Day. I would love to see your creations.
Happy Crafting, People
