Silver Darlings

I'm finally allowed to post pics of this card - have been sworn to secrecy for the last couple of weeks. One of my regular customers asked me to make a 25th anniversary card for her friends. The only stipulation she had was that she wanted me to include a pic of them on their wedding day and a recent pic . Well I'm not in the habit of making cards with photographs, but this is what I came up with. I thought the best way to show off the 2 photos would be to do a double easel card - and this one took ages to figure out, because I had to carefully measure everything for the edge and corner punches.



The papers are all Wild Rose Studios - Wedding Bells, MS Cherish PATP punches, papermania ribbon bows, silver mirri card, and I printed the years and greeting on the pc.


I have some fantastically exciting news to tell you, but I can't tell you until I get clearance from the high heidyins! Hopefully tomorrow they will remove my gag and I can spill the beans, so watch this space... 


and lastly for today - check this face out, believe it or not, Willow is actually 6, not 16!!

Intrigued by your exciting news. I love the photo of Willow - is that because you've swiped "her" Kanban stamps I wonder. she's a very pretty little girl. Your idea of the double easel is brilliant & I love the way you've used those soft stylish blues & greys as a foil for the photos.

Gorgeous card Debbi. What a lovely idea to do a double easel card. It really shows off the photos and the DP is just perfect for an anniversary card.

What a lovely wee girl. You'll probably have lots of fun when she is 16 lol!!

Hi Debbi, the card is stunning and reflects all the work you put into it - soemthing to treasure. Really intrigued to hear what your news is too. Your wee girl's attitude reminds me of that LOTV stamp that's popular at the moment - she didn't model for it, did she by any chance? Elizabeth x
