Having acquired two sets of LLB as a gift and not being able to sell them on (I don't really care for them) I thought I'd set myself the challenge of trying to use them.
I can't say they inspired me - they're a bit fussy for my taste and too 'designerish' - they don't leave much room for you to add anything, they're so 'in your face'.
But, I like a challenge - so here is my effort!
It's for my very good friend Roni who has a birthday at the end of the month. She has been a very, very good friend to me and my family for over twenty-eight years (I was expecting Rob, my number three son when we met) and even though she has had some dreadful times in her life she still remains a kind and caring person.
For the front of the 21cm square card, I used the outer page of the pad (...waste not,want not...! LOL!) and, rare for me, silver corner peel-offs.
A lipstick pink ribbon from the kit and a message mat stamped in lipstick red and silver, and the front was done! Very quick & easy!
The inner is always a problem in 21cm square cards as only A3 is big enough to use without a seam but I wanted to use the patterned paper to match the front, so I seamed it onto white and placed the verse on the white mid-space. Another piece of the same ribbon and the inner is done too. It may not look it, but those roses are silver-foiled.
A very quick and easy card and surprisingly.....I actually quite like it!
Hope you like it too!
Thank you for looking!
