This post is to show a special card I made for my boyfriends Nan who turned 80 years old recently. Not that you would think it to watch her - she is as fit as a fiddle.
I used a stamped image from Stamping Bella called Uptown Girl Pippa loves to plant.
The image was perfect as Nan loves her garden and we had also bought her some lovely silver & pearl flower earrings, which I made a little card for. (Picture below...)
Etsy shop - KB and Friends to print the Vintage bingo cards,
for the background as this combines Nan's love for Bingo and the family!
The coral flower paper is from Carta Bella - Hello Again range and the mint green flower paper is from AC Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic.
I have used bazzill swiss dot cardstock for the die cut and punched leaves, along with a load of different paper flowers which I bought from The Ribbon Girl.
The greeting is from Pebbles and I attached the button with some natural twine. I also used Doodlebug letters to spell Nan and add 80th. I've used a large 8 X 8 white card blank and mounted everything on kraft card. I also used a Martha Stewart punch to make corners from the left over Kraft. Finally I added a load of gems for some extra bling and various colours of liquid pearls in the middle of the flowers!
I used these Promarkers and Flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique White, blush, soft peach & coral.
Hair - Buttercup, Pineapple Crush, Mustard & Sleigh Bells.
Flowers - Antique Pink & Salmon Pink / Carmine & Baby pink / Buttercup & Mango.
