greeting cards

Hello: Diva Lisa


A bit of a last minute rush to get a card done for the latest challenge from The East Wind. Lots of house tidying and the like had to be done and that combined with trips to the physio and the dentist had pretty much robbed me of any energy recently! But, I missed the last challenge and I didn’t want to skip another so I got myself together and created a shaped card with a shapely lady on it…


Nothing particularly clever technique-wise for this card, apart from some partial die-cutting of the scalloped circle so I didn’t chop off her foot or the flower fronds. I cut two circles and sandwiched the vellum in between them – there wasn’t a lot of Copic bleed-through showing from the back of the card, but I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to keeping things tidy, hence the extra layer of white card…

I cut down a card base to the appropriate size (no idea what size it is, but I shall have to make a custom envelope for it) and popped the panel up on some thin foam tape. Finishing touches included the die-cut sentiment, gold faux stitching around the edge, a scattering of sequins and, of course, a bit of Wink of Stella on her wings.
