A Welcome Card

Welcome

I was asked to make a card for a special event.  
The words on the card are what the purchaser requested.


I computer generated them, cut them out using a die from the Floral Ovals set, embossed it and then sponged it with Fired Brick distress ink before removing the die.

The sentiment was mounted over a red and gold ribbon - the gold is actually woven into the ribbon and has a beautiful lustre to it,


I also had just received some new dies, and as the recipient was arriving home from the mission field I couldn't wait to use the Filigree Cross Die D-lite, which I cut out in a gold adhesive paper.


The features were then mounted over a white panel embossed with the Valor E-mbossabilities plate, then onto a red card base which I sponged the edges of with white ink. 


I was very happy with the outcome, as was my customer.


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.

May your day be blessed
