Golden Anniversary Card


I started with a clip art line drawing of a bell, which I cut apart into the back, clapper and front for the 3d effect. I cut the two bells out of a pale gold card with a slight pearly sheen, then used SU Creamy Caramel ink to add some shading. The upper portion has been embossed using a Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder. I curved the top layer of the bells slightly, and raised the middle up with foam pads.

The flowers are made using a creamy pearl paper. The larger ones have been sponged with Creamy Caramel around the edges of the petals. I used the same bronzy gold card for the centres of the flowers, the leaves and the matting. The centres of the smaller flowers are Liquid Pearls Gold, and the flat backed pearls in the middle of the larger ones were white, and then I coloured them with a brown permanent marker.

The greeting is computer generated, and the corners of the background were punched using an x-cut punch - don't think that one is still available to buy.
