I made a card for a very special lady that had to have emergency surgery and we are all lucky she is well and alive now. I wanted to brighten her day with this card:
I used gesso on pretty much everything on this card...all the layers of distressed patterned paper are covered with light coat of gesso, doily and Tim Holtz clock cutout, the flowers which I made myself, by the way, are also covered with gesso and some crackle paint. The birdcage has a layer of gesso applied to it as well...The sentiment was created on my PC and printed onto a piece of vellum.
I am not sure how much you can really see the texture on the flowers, but here they are!
You can see how I attached the birdcage so that it gives extra dimension to the card...
One more side shot from the other side :)
I made a keepsake box for the card to protect it during the shipping and to complement the card design. I am shipping this card later on today and I truly hope that Lisa will enjoy it. :)
