Card: I Love You
February 04, 2014 • Leave a Comment
My darling daughter asked me to incorporate sequins into today's card, so here we go. I made it harder for myself by deciding to use vellum to mute the sequins and we all know that attaching vellum requires inventiveness. I solved the problem of not showing where the vellum is attached by attaching the little rose brads whenever there was a sequin and that way the vellum appears to be "free-floating" on top of the sequins, which are arranged in bokeh fashion below the focal point of the card. The butterfly wings are also covered with a "floating" layer of vellum. Overall a satisfying result and Andie was happy with it.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.
PS: I have a confession to make. St. Valentine's is my least favourite holiday. I have never liked it. I have myriad and complex reasons for feeling that way about it that have nothing to do with the subject matter of this blog or with this post, so I will not expand on it, but I just wanted to say that in case anyone might assume that I'm big time into celebrating it; I am not, and the various SVD cards I'm making this month are purely an aesthetic/artistic exploration.
