Something a little bit different to my usual style. This has been created for a charity I deal with on a regular basis through my work. They invited me to attend a celebration they are having soon to celebrate their 15th anniversary, but I can't go, sadly, so decided to make them a card instead.
Basically, it's a bare branch stamp (Penny Black, I think), stamped on high white CS in Dark Brown Chalk Eyes, then cut out. I used a birch leaf punch to make leaves out of green DP, which I shaped and embossed.. inked the edges with Versacolor Olive, then glittered with Craft Planet irridescent glitter glue. Each one was stuck individually to the ends of each twig, and where there was room to put a sticky pad between them to create different levels, I have.
By hand, I drew the squiggly square around the card using a fine tip fibre pen, and then stuck the branch down loosely on sticky pads so that it's secure, but has movement. I created the 15 using Wordart, cut them out, inked the edges, glittered the surface and stuck in place.
Computer-generated letters for the name of the charity at the top, and stamped 'Congratulations'. Three square gold brads complete the card.
Not happy with the balance, and feel it needs more, but didn't want to go overboard, as this is for a professional contact. Prettier in real life with the 3D quiver on the leaves. Hope they like it!
