A Diamond

A neighbour asked if I would make a card for
their friends' Diamond Wedding Anniversary.

So this what I came up with.
The glitter card I used was from Hobbycraft, 
as were some of the flowers.

The background is a pearlescent card I bought at 
Thetford Craft Show. I used a Craft Too A4 
Embossing folder on it.

This is the insert paper from my stash and 
the sentiment I printed on my computer.
The wording was given to me from
my neighbour.

As it was an 8" x 8" card, I made a box for it, as it was 
going to be hand delivered.

She thought it was far above what she thought 
it would be! It was the first card I have made for her.
She hasn't seen my cards other than their 
Christmas card I gave them last year!

Thank you for all your lovely messages you left
me on my last post.
My swirly patterend bauble is much better than
the one on my last post!!
It was a fiddle to make initially but got the hang of it now.

I was hoping it would take less fabric but it  
still took 92 x 2 inch squares!! 

In between my Christmas makes to sell, I have just 
finished doing a Cross stitch Advent Calendar
for my Grandson. I now have to get my 
sewing machine out and put all the pieces together!!

I will post it when it's finshed.

Big hugs,

I might have a go at swirly baubles as it does look pretty. I made another out of paper on Monday and it looked much better than last week’s. It’s all trial and error. Your card is very pretty, no wonder she loved it
