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.
