Today's card is, to my mind, a beautiful use of Mirror Card and a wonderful antidote to the pinks and creams of the weekend! When Wendy was videoing with me on last Monday she said that it was disappointing that Mirror card seems to have fallen out of favour however we both felt that this card shows what can be achieved by using it in the filigree style.
I wanted to post this creation today to show the difference that can be achieved from the same die as I used a couple of times last week, firstly on Sue's card from Tuesday and my mothers day card from Friday. Today I teamed it with black to give a dramatically strong and masculine anniversary card.
This was a commission for a friend who needed a card for her first anniversary for her boyfriend (he's a bit of an old romantic!)
I felt that the Black and gold made it a nice masculine feel however the filigree gave a romantic edge to what can be a difficult commission.
The topper is simply made from 2 hearts one cut from bronze glitter card the other from black cardstock. I wrapped this with organza ribon and added a hand cut tag gold embossed with the sentiment. I had to ad a hatpin as Wendy has just completed a new beautiful set and these filigree and black ones hit the mark.
My Friend loved it, here's hoping you do too!
