Today's card is a commission for a friend and although it looks like a mothers day card it isn't! This card was for a friends mums birthday last week. He wanted something clean and crisp but beautiful, I hope that this matched the brief!
I started by folding a sheet of A4 white hammered PMD cardstock in half to create the card blank. The centre section has been cut / embossed using a selection of Spellbinders Gold Ovals dies which have also debossed parts of the shape. I die cut some ovals and then used more of the gold ovals to cut and shaped these.
I layered each piece in a dark pink cardstock and layered them up centrally with foam tape.
The sentiment is stamped in a matching dew drop ink on the same cardstock using a stamp from DoCrafts Love Notes range and I love the intricate way the word is made of the differing patterns.
I have decorated the front with a sprinkling of butterflies cut with Spellbinders Les Papillions 2 each with a pearl in the centre and the wings shaped to look as if they are in flight.
Finally I wrapped matching Pink and White ribbon around the centre and tied it in a bow to one side. I added a few of Wendy's hatpins that matched and used one to secure the sentiment panel in place.
I love the crisp white and pink and the way that monochrome doesn't have to be masculine or just black and white.
