Happy lockdown Anniversary

I was commissioned to make an Anniversary card for a daughter and son-in-law celebrating in lockdown. They planned to have a special meal delivered. I was asked if somehow I could show two cats to represent theirs, sitting at table with them ... well, this is what I managed to do. I found an image of a cat at table to download and 'played' digitally, reversing the image for the second cat and putting side by side with the sentiment 'Please may we join you for your celebration meal?' This was then printed and put on the stand up part of the easel card, colouring the cats with spectrum noir pencils.

The actual piece of card used to make the easel was embossed and brushed with fired brick distress ink ... and it wasn't till now that I realise only a very little of this shows under the sentiment ... I should have taken a picture of the back.

I used a Papermania stamp inked with memento love letter to randomly stamp over the base, wrapping a ribbon round this and adding the printed greeting matted on to red mirror card to serve as a stopper.

I cut a piece of red mirror cardwith the heartfelt wishes Gemini edge'able die and stuck at the top (covering the joins at the back with another piece of card). Hearts were added (the one between the cats says 'with love'.
