Its not easy to create a card for your mother in law and especially if she suffers with dementia, so I wanted to make one that she could touch and feel the texture of it. Ive actually used on of the Joanna Sheen Cds, Victorian Christman for this one, and printed out a topper sheet first. I also printed out all three backing papers as well, to use to layer up the card.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card, and Ive used gold mirri board for my mounting medium with this card, and used my first patterned paper onto this base layer, the second layer is a 1" smaller and was created in the same way and again it was layered up onto the gold card. Around the middle I have put a wide gold and red ribbon which I have attached to the back of the base layer.
For my main topper I have again layered this onto gold card, and then created a slightly smaller mount to fit this onto, and then Ive stuck it to the centre of my card with some foam tape. The sentiment was printed from my computer and then also mounted onto gold mirri card, and positioned to the right hand side at the bottom, and to finish of I have used three small pointsetta flowers and one large one in the top and bottom left hand corners. The final thing I did was put some yellow stickles in the centres of the flowers on the topper, and some clear on the white pearly bits in the arrangement.
