Commissioned Birthday Card for a Friend



One of my customers wanted a card for her best friend for her birthday. She's not into anything really but does like fashion. Thankfully I take photos of cards I make as I picked the same image from last year for this so that was a no-no. In the end I used my Card Creations Art Deco CD and chose this gorgeous looking lady. I used the faded tone backing paper, the 3D decoupage and the brighter insert for the inside. I had some of the backing paper left over so instead of leaving it in a box to possibly get damaged I cut a circle out with a scalloped Nestabilities die and stuck it to the back of the card. I think it finishes off the card well.

This card meets the criteria of this weeks' CRAFT Challenge of decoupage.
