Well today has been another beautiful day in my lovely part of the coast is is sunny 22C, washing dried and folded, house clean, if not tidy- when is ever that? Now to my card.
My problem so often when making cards or anything for that matter is what to leave out and what to put in - I think I am the master of indecision!
I actually made this card twice, as the first one was rejected as too fussy, and it was for an order so I needed to get it right.
I love the Swiss Dots simplicity as cuttlebug folder and liked it with the Easi score board line to mark the ribbon border. I used Ikki's method to make the card bigger than the size of the A2 folder (see Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard also on blogger), which means you match up the first row of dots where it ends along one side and put the card and roll in carefully through the bug till you see it is to where it ended before.
I will see if I can put on a link if needed, as this method is not my idea and don't want to breach protocol. She has really great blog if you are learning to use your bug. I used a Marianne Creatables frame, having pre-printed the greeting with my printer then cut out the frame, and finished it off with the 3D rose bud, I made.
Of course, it was then finished with the Olivia numbers in my bug in glitter cardstock.
Have had another friend order a card so decided to do another one, this time for a 75th card for her dear mother, and here it is:
