Good Morning All,
A couple of days ago my mum asked for a card for her friends Silver Wedding Anniversary. After spending too long thinking what to make I came up with the idea of making a filigree card actually in silver. Now not being a silversmith, nor being able to afford that quantity of silver, I decided to try Mirri card. Much to my surprise it worked!
I cut the base using the filigree technique in a heavy weight silver card (had to be very careful photographing) using Spellbinders Enchanted labels 28 The insert is cut in white glitter paper (by hand so possibly a bit wonky I don't decoupage as not keen on my scissor work)
The final layers are from antique frames and accents, I cut the frame into two and stuck the 2 pieces on either end of an oval that I hand studded (never again it takes an age) with pearls.
The sentiment is stamped in detail white embossing powder on the centre oval from spellbinders radiant rectangles. A bow, hatpin and copious pearls stuck everywhere and voila my version of Faberge! Enjoy...
