This is an invitation for my sister to come to afternoon tea, we only see each other about once a year if we're lucky. She is in the States just now visiting her son, so this will be waiting for her when she gets home. It's the first of this kind of card I've made and I really like it. Thanks to Bev Rochester for the inspiration, she makes such lovely cards, I'm always soooo envious.
I've been practicing with my Grand Calibre and my Grand Nesties, this is the first shaped card I've tried, and I love it. I think it's very elegant, at least that was the look I was going for. The base is Grand Labels 1 and the decorative paper is Victoria and Albert, Hanoverian Linen.
The foilage is Martha Stewart branch and frond punches and the flower is a Marianne die. The lovely foilage flourish is from Cheery Lynne dies and is called Fanciful Flourish and I just adore it, I can see this on many, many cards coming up soon (I hope).
The sentiment is on a Label Five nestie, nesties are a fabulous invention, so versatile, sooo easy to use. I hope you like this card as much as I do.
