Hello and welcome...
It's quite alarming how the weeks fly by, 4 weeks ago I started 'Festive Friday'!

Today's card is actually a 'blast from the past' as I've had a busy week (not being well and we had the pretty 2 tier cake etc).  The card was also a commission

This is an 8" square ivory card, I cut a smaller piece of the same card and embossed it then added dries clear glue to the edges and sprinkled diamond snow glitter around them

I covered another piece of ivory card with a piece of  double sided adhesive then added gilding flakes and burnished the flakes in with a rubit scrubit.  As only a border would be showing I removed the 'inside' and will/would use it for another project.  The border is all the same colours, it's the angle of the card makes the top half look darker!

I used the same two bauble dies that were on last week's card to die cut and emboss in gold mirri

A rope style gold ribbon was attached to the top of the baubles and secured behind the gilding flakes border

I typed a personal sentiment on white paper (should have used ivory/cream) and adhered it to the centre of the larger bauble

I also added a personal verse to the inside
