Something different.

Please can I have your honest opinions on this card. It is for my brother & his wife who are celebrating their Silver Wedding this year. Where has the time gone - it was mums & dads - oldies who had their Silver Wedding - not brothers!!!

I have got ages until their anniversary - so any additions can be made - or a complete change. The template I had downloaded ages ago - then just typed the sentiment and then added to silver card. To get the top effect - I have just used tin foil.

I also made a masculine card - I am not very good at the fiddly bits of cutting out - but this actually went ok - makes a change!!

However it was not all plain sailing - I had originally stamped the greeting directly on the card, but it was a bit blurry - so following one of the tips in one of last months card making magazines, just re stamped it onto card and covered the original stamp - I think it looks ok.

Can I also take this opportunity to say thank you for all the lovely comments on earlier posts they are always lovely to read!! xx


  1. They are great, I love the bottle, such a different style of card. I too read the tip about covering dodgy stamping (I do way too much crap stamping!), I had never thought of that before so rarely stamped directly onto a card, will try it a bit more now as I know I can always cover it up x

  2. I think the bottle card is so different and I like how you've used the foil. Your male card is great too - I love the image sitting on the "wall". Great tanktop. Jaqui x

  3. great cards! i think the bottle is fab and something different!x
