Anna Griffin blue and yellow

I've been commissioned to make a large A4 card for a lady's 90th birthday. I've used all Anna Griffin supplies, added some blue gems, because I think they always 'go down well' with senior ladies. It's not actually needed for quite some time yet, but I just felt like getting ahead with it. The circle with a floral edge was punched with my new mini 8 punch - a very clever system that seems to work well - you can see one demonstrated here. I used the snowflake one for this card that I showed earlier today.

The sentiment was computer generated and printed and then cut with a nesti label and a backing one as well.

Some of the pansies are 3D, as are the butterflies.

This is for:

  10. I wondered if that punch came with your new set and it did..that was a clever purchase on your part. It adds wonderful detail to your cards. The colors you've chosen here Hazel are very classy and the butterflies and pansies and little bumblebee are glorious embellishments. Nicely done (and early too) on this 90th birthday card Hazel. She'll love it!

    Thank you for sharing it with us at Make It Monday.
