I generally only make “special” cards for people I know or work with, but now and again I get a lovely e-mail from someone who’s seen my work and they are so nice I usually make them something when they ask ….
This is one of those cards for a friend, of a friend, of a friend, ….., I asked for a photo and built a newspaper round it using a template I created, building it up in simple decoupage layers, which I hope you can see in the picture below.
The champagne bottle and glasses were from a pack of embellishments from Crafts for Christmas (£1.49) – I didn’t realise there were 4 sets on embellishments in the pack, bottle, glasses and stars, so I have enough left over for three more cards. I’ve added a scattering of small clear gems for champagne bubbles and a smidge of translucent micro glitter on the cake. Done!
