Finally a Card!

Hi I have finally finished my card. I made this card to exhibit in our local show in the 'Handmade Cards' section, this weekend.

I used metallic paper and white card stock. The birdcage is a Marianne Creatables die and I have embossed it using a mat. The butterflies are punched from a Creative Memories punch. I have made the flower using three different size punches which I have layered and then wet to give it texture. It is finished with a pearl brad. My good friend Joy showed me how to make this flower at one of our craft weekends. I have added an organza bow.

A computer generated sentiment cut using a circle punch has been added to finish it off.

And finally the inside is very simply with some metallic paper and white card and three pearl embellishments.

Thanks for looking,
