Commisioned Card




Hello All,

This is a card I was asked by a friend to make, My Brief was..cutsie, hearts, flowers, butterflies, glitter..more is more is more is more!!!

I am not sure on the results, as I don't know that it is really me. The gorgeous image is "lilli of the vally" which I have coloured using my copics then I have painted over her dress using "twinkling H2o's - Oyster and Iridescent Blue"

I have just done loads of matting and layering using mirri card. blue pearl embossed card, and pearl paper..the gorgeous white flowers I got in a candy win from the lovely Vanessa..and all the blue flowers and leaves are from " Dawn Bibby"

I have also added some ribbon, butterfly peel offs, gems and of course stickels...

As I mentioned I am a little nervous and unsure of this one, I normally like to give people a choice if they buy cards off me, then they can choose their own style..I always think if they went into a shop they would have a few to choose from...but with a specific one like this you can only make one and hope for the best!...will be interested to see what you all think.

this is my entry for:

Lilli of the Vally : Blue and Silver
Allsorts: No DP's

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls

  1. Hi Juls, I like the blue/green with silver and those gorgeous flowers and silver butterfly. The fancy fold also makes it pretty impressive. Sooo much better than a shop bought card!!! Peter and Pat are going to be thrilled I'm sure.... so stop worrying!

  10. brilliant Juls. I've been looking at this template recently and thought it involved a lot of work but like the way you simplified it by having blank, layered panels - it works really well!

  13. Oh Juls - please don't be unsure. This is awesome.

    There will be no other card in the world the same as this and the person buying this and receiving this will know that.

    I would be over the moon to receive such a card (and to have made such a card). This is real inspiration for us all.

    Love Jules xx

  22. WOW Juls! What are you talking about, this is just utterly stunning! OK, I may be a bit biased as I love that stamp and ordered it last week. Chomping at the bit waiting for it to arrive, don't bank holidays muck up your shopping?! LOL! Anyway, this is just gorgeous and whoever receives it will be utterly delighted as will the person you commissioned it for. keeleyxx
