Commissioned Card for my Son's Workplace


My son asked me to make a card for a colleague's mother who liked freesias.  Yikes I said as I don't know one flower from another apart from a few types.  Thankfully a friend came to the rescue.  I printed the main image onto photo paper and decoupage it up.  I used my new Cricut to make the two large frames and also the small flowers/leaves (Accent Essentials cartridge).  Inside I faded out an image on one side to put the verse on top whereas the image the other side was at 100%.  In My Craft Studio I did some faux matting and layering with some Crafty Ann's paper from the Polished Stone Collections and it was then layered onto some striped paper I was given.  The card is finished off with some ribbon, a sentiment off the computer and some diamante pins.


This card fits the following challenges:


Cricut Cardz - Use any feature from a Cricut cartridge (I used my scallop frame, flowers and leaves from the Accent Essential cartridge for my first attempt at a card for this challenge blog)
The Shabby Team Room - From the garden
Allsorts - Summer days - if these beautiful flowers don't make you think of summer what will?
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Lazy hazy days of summer
Craftalicious - Birthdays.
