Molly's Card


I had to make a card for a rather special lady who will soon be 90 years old! Using a cream pearl card blank, I embossed a line around close to the edge, and highlighted it with a peeloff. I then drew a scroll on a piece of plain cream card and antiqued it using a distress ink pad. I wrote the message freehand with a two way glue pen and foiled it using foiling glitter, I attached the scroll to the card using foam pads. I attached some purple funky flowers, and used chunky self adhesive stones for the centres. I painted the small flowers and leaves using Liquid pearls and Ranger acrylics. Meanwhile using my own design butterfly stamps, I stamped the butterflies onto acetate, and glittered on the back, I then attached these to the card using dst and foam pads. I stamped and embossed my bee, and coloured it using Aquatone pencils, cut him out and attached him using foam pads.
