But today I have something to show you. A big card, it measures 15cm by 21cm! It's for a wedding taking place in the Netherlands. And to please everyone involved, I was asked to write the sentiments in three languages: Norwegian, Dutch and Frisian! That's a first time for me... But it was a fun project. The sentiments on the front say "congratulations on your wedding day".
The sentiments were written in the font Porcelain -it's a free download at Misprinted Type. I played around with the layout of the words in PhotoStudio, printed it on white Bazzill and cut it out with my nesties.
I used layers and textures to create some interest in this muted monochromatic colour scheme. Two shimmering DPs, Bazzill Bling, silver cardstock, silver ink, flat-back pearls and silver-rimmed pearl brads give the card a lot of shine. The flowers are all white, but in various shapes and sizes. I probably used about half a bottle of Glimmermist Pearl on them, and some Stickles Diamond glitter glue for good measure!
A little peek of the inside. Clean and simple as usual. The sentiment is again in all three languages - loosely translated they say "best wishes".
I've entered this card to two challenges: At the ABC Challenge they are saying that R is for roses, and I have three of those. And I think I'm just in time to enter Secret Crafter as well... I hope so. Their theme is bling, and there's enough of that here, for sure! ;)
I'll be back soon with more cards and some more knitting. My task for the day was to find online tutorials for grafting/kitchener stitch... Not a problem, there were loads to choose from. Now I just have to see if I can make it work.
