I thought I'd share with you one of the cards I made for my very first commssion piece for Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. I couldn't pop it on my blog for 6 months due to copyright but it was about 12 months ago so I'm quite safe now!
It was for a designer challenge section and I had to create 5 different baby cards all using different techniques etc. I was sent a few sheets of Pebbles Inc papers, paper flowers and a pack of embellishments I couldn't use any stamped images etc and had to keep other extra items to a minimum. I only used basic card, a bit of brown ribbon, brown fibres and some pink pearls as extras on this card.
I made a little bird shape that mimicked the shape of the little birdie on the backing papers. This along with the sentiment made an ideal focal point. The sentiment I did on the computer and is an old typewriter type font which was a freebie but I have stripped my computer since then and can't remember which one it was - I really liked it as it was just a little distressed but not too much!
I will share the other 4 cards with you over the next week or so.
Thanks for looking!
