Another Printer Tray Card


Well I wont be saying too much again today

I have been working on this box card for days and got it all finished yesterday – it was for a good friend and class member Pat

I went with the colours as pinks to purples and did stay within those colours

What I will say is all the swirls and happy birthday were in white card so I coloured them with Tim Holtz distress ink pads

The carnation sprays I bought from someone on a craft forum for pence really – the beautiful purple glittered flowers and the feather dress were all sent to me by the lovely Yvonne – so a huge thank you!!

I actually painted the cover for the base using a funky metallic purple paint from B&Q

The doily and centre sentiment as well as the stamped verse in the bottom left corner inside the box were all inked with pink and lilac inks then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mists – this gives a fantastic sheen but leave paper and card wet so I rolled a roll of kitchen towel over it and that soaks up so much moisture – and colour – so it leaves things muted but so shiny!!

I have taken loads of photos so you will get the idea of how it looked!

Pat was really pleased with the card – I wrapped it in tissue paper and added dotty ribbon to tie it all up!!!

A job well done....

See you next time
