Commissioned Card for my Son for his Work



My son came home last night from work and asked if I would make a card for his work for someone who has their birthday on Thursday.  I said I wasn't sure but I'd try.  Thankfully I'd received my new Debbi Moore Designs Art Deco Christmas CD and decided I would use of the lovely lady images for the card.  That was a bad idea - why you ask - I spent about half an hour trying to decide which gorgeous one to choose.  In the end I chose one of my favourites - a lady in green - and for those of you that know me I HATE green and have done since I was young and at one stage I wouldn't even eat green sweets but she is so magical.

Again, the card had to be A4 and as I had decorated the envelope of the first card I made for them and the second I had to do it on the third.  This time I used the topper sheet and just cut it up and set it out nicely.  I think it's a lot nicer to decorate the envelope when it's a card being given at work.  The main image on the card I used the snapshot tool and then sent it straight to print from there and she's gorgeous.  I luckily had some gorgeous green/blue ribbon that I won in the Ribbon Oasis' Blog Candy a while back and this matched perfectly.  I finished the card off with some card candy, a sentiment, some 50's strategically put on the card but not the front as not everyone likes numbers on cards and some blue/green fibres.

All I want to do now is ....................... keep it!!!  It has though been packed away in two jiffy bags for my son to take into work in the morning.

This is stunning Kym. The colours & the flourishes are breathtaking. That art deco look is too fabulous! I can't blame you for wanting to keep it. I'd have THE hardest time giving this away! Your son is lucky to have a fab Mom to make it for him, but not as lucky as the lady who gets to keep it! :O)

Hi Kym, I still seem to have trouble getting your blog to load and sometimes I have to give up as it freezes. You've done so much great work since I last managed to comment (keeping my fingers crossed that you get this). I have this Debbie Moore cd and love it but haven't managed to make a stunner like this one yet.

Me again Kym. Thought you might not publish this one. I don't know if you've heard any more from the person who objected to their blog being linked to your one but I've noticed that there is a link to your blog on a lot of the blogs I'm visitng just under the comment bit.I'm guessing it's not intentional but know know what's going on.
Hugs

Just gorgeous Kym, I think I may have to find out more about this CD if this is the standard of the images on it!

Stunning card Kym, she is absolutely gorgeous. While away I was in Clintons and they have these fabulous ladies everywhere. Was looking at that cd this morning think I may have to go back and buy it lol. I am certain that it will be well received and what a brilliant idea to decorate the envelope when it's a card for lots of people to sign

What a lovely job you've made of this Kym.
My DM disc is still in my PC tray...I still haven't got around to doing anything with it yet.
The front of the card is gorgeous and you've finished the inside beautifully
