Quote Card


I said in my first post that I was a lover of quotes. I often use them inside a card but I think they can make quite an impact when the quote becomes the focal point of the card. So today I took one of my favourites and mounted it onto Spellbinders label 16.   

I used ivory card from my stash and the same card for the quote which I cut with the Labels 16 and matted with mink coloured Bazzil cardstock.  The backing paper and striped ribbon are Papermania Lincoln Linen. Flowers from WOC, leaf spray is a Woodware punch and the butterflies are Marianne Creatables. Once I took the photograph I realised that the Zva pearl flourish got lost in the background so I will replace it with one that has bigger pearls. The lace from my stash was a fabulous buy.  I bought it some years ago from a shop that was closing down. The card held 27.6 metres and cost £1.50 - less than 6p a metre, reduced from 59p a metre. And we all know how much crafters love a bargain! Lol!

In the picture it looks as if I have matted the card lopsided, but it is just the angle I took the picture.  I need some photography lessons!

Well that's all from me so have a great day everybody!

  9. Hi again,
    This is a very elegant and sophisticated card and the colour scheme is beautiful. I personally think the little pearl swirls look lovely and not over-the-top, but I think that is down to personal taste.
    Your quote is lovely and so true; I do so love Ralph Waldo Emerson, thoughtful and thought provoking!
    Special wishes Linda x
