Handmade and personalised

I love to make cards........... and I really enjoy making special one-of-a-kind cards specifically for the recipients and their families

This is one of my recently commissioned cards - and it was requested by a husband to give to his wife on their 57th something anniversary - and he really wanted to celebrate their love  of dancing together. 

I've printed this dancing silhouette onto velum cardstock and fussy cut it out so that it is surrounded by the heart of the love this couple have for each other.

As this is a large card at 6" x 6", I've created a custom made envelope that mirrors the colours and images from the card including the music printed paper.

The finishing touch is some opulent gold ribbon and sequins!

I hope you've enjoyed this lovely card.

Happy Stamping! Julia
