SOME VERY GOOD FRIENDS ARE GETTING MARRIED and I found a lovely picture that I wanted to use in some way on their card. A picture of two cats. I had no idea what form this card was going to take - just that I wanted this picture. Various ideas drifted about but none were quite right. Even after the invitation arrived I had no clear idea.
Then my muse struck ...... a booklet type card. A lot of work, yes. Worth every minute, yes.
Starting with the DCWV Once upon a time 8" x 8" pad I looked for the right images for this fairy tale.
A castle, a forest, gates and a joke linked to the invitation. Pictures found and then altered using CRAFT ARTIST. http://www.daisytrail.com/gallery.html
To make my card I began with a sketch, I don't usually do this but I wanted to know exactly how many pages I would need. I also had to know where to split the pages to add an air of mystery to my story. With the pictures chosen, altered and stuck to my backing pages I bound my card using my Zutter Bind-it-all. It seemed right to try alternate pages for this card, I was a little worried about doing this without a trial run but it worked really well. I rounded the corners of the pages to give a nice finish.
With the base card made I can really go to town decorating the pages.
Using an arched window background sheet I cut out the bridal cats and after sticking them down highlighted some features with glitter glue.
