I am here with a wedding card I made for a commission, using a technique I found here. It is a 'shadow box' card.
I have used different sizes to the one on the Little Claire's blog though. I have used an A3 piece of card, and my folds are at 6cm & 11cm from the left edge, and then the same in from the right edge. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, and Sizzix Stampin' Up! Framelits for the aperture and the sentiment. The image is from My Craft Studio Simply Silhouettes, and the corners are Macarena Die from Memory Box. The ribbon and black Swarovski gems are from Ladybug Crafts Ink and the clear gems are from my stash. I made a box for my card as it's such a special card, but it would go into an A4 envelope, I think, as it folds quite flat.
I had a brief of Black and White, and to use artists Fabian Perez and Jack Vettriano as inspiration. My customer LOVED it!! In fact, he even paid me double what I asked for it, which really confirmed the card was perfect for his daughter! I love it when I get such a positive reaction to my cards! :)
Thanks so much for popping by for a peek! :)
