Thank you so much for all the lovely comments that youve been leaving me for the Samples Ive been making for Sarah, the toppers really are lovely and stand out really well, this one especially. As I said they are all based around beautiful vases and this one is no exception, Ive used a blue daisy flower for this one. I printed the topper out onto semi gloss photo paper then cut it out around the scalloped edge, after which I mounted it onto a piece of gold mirri board and punched the corners to help it blend in with the topper. The sentiment tag is a piece of white card on which I have stamped a greeting and then punched it out with my oval nestabilitie die, and mounted it up onto scalloped die cut punched from some more of the gold mirri board, I then just run my gold pen around the edge of the oval to finish it of.
For the base card again I used the icepearl pearlescent card and printed one of the background designs on to it, folded it into a A5 size and with some gold mirri paper I punched out a lace edge with one of the new deep edged Martha Stewart border punches and attached it to the opening edge. To hid the edge Ive used one of the ribbon strip designs from Sarahs Cd and positioned it over the two edges, I also printed that on the same icepearl card. I should say that I also printed an insert from the same cd and popped that inside, all her design sets have backing papers, inserts, toppers, and she has lots of alternatives as well, like twisted pyramarge, and that sort of thing, its a really comprehesive Cd with lots of beautiful designs on, Ive only used a fraction of them, but Im know you would be delighted with it, if you decide to buy it yourself. Sarah has her own website http://www.spanglefish.com/peerlessdesigns/ were you can buy her beautiful cds, and guess what she doesnt charge postage and packing.
Another quick thing my parcel still hasnt turned up, luckily its not craft goodies, its Microsoft Word program that Im waiting for, I carnt validate the download we installed until it arrives, and god knows when thats going to be, as its foggy outside today and still thick snow.
