a 'just for someone special' card


i was asked by a friend at my gym to make a card for his wife, Han, so i used a design i previously used for mother's day and made him a similar card.

the flowers are from the mini tattered floral strip die using pink and blue whitewash coredinations card and some distress inking.
the background is a card from Once Upon a Time paper stash under a piece of mountboard covered in musical tissue tape which was washed over with white, pearl and peri dabber then i stamped the horologie background in vermillion archival and dabbed off the excess when wet.  after heat setting it i put it through a large cuttlebug script folder, and swiped the raised text with grey stazon ink.  i edged it with platinum stickles.
the name plate is written with the upon a time strip die and infilled with sepia glossy accents.
because of the dimension i am giving this in a box.
