Card For An Order

I thought I would post a card today that wasn't made for any challenges. Yes I can hear you all gasping with horror lol!!!!

Firstly though I have to show you a couple of piccies of the help I was receiving from one of my babies.

This is my little girl Cassie. She is 4 years old now but we have had her 2 years. Isn't she a darling.

As you can see in the picture I dusted off my robo to make this card. The card is for an 80th birthday.

The front card design is from a template I got from craftrobomegastore when I first got Robbie. I tend to use this template more than any of them. The decoupage is from a friend of mine called Penny. She does some of the most amazing decoupage & teabag tiles for free. I decorated the corners using flat backed pearls that I got from Sam. I also added gold gems from my stash. I edged the card & the diamond with glitter peel offs that I coloured with my Terracotta promarker.

The inside of the card is an insert I cut from a sheet of BG from the sugared collection. I added a diamond from one of my failed attempts at cutting on Robbie. I again edged with peel offs. The 80 was cut from my Sizzix dies & I again used my Terracotta Promarker to add some colour to the edges.

In the centre of the insert itself I downloaded a verse from the net, not sure which site, & printed onto cream paper. I again edged with the peel offs. x Clare x

Clare, this is a stunner! The cutwork reminds me of filigree.
Totally gorgeous! Give 'Clare's little helper' a cuddle from me. She's gorgeous!
