It's not every day you get asked to make a card featuring a photo of a ferry and an OBE! I did my best, here it is.
The photo was emailed to me, I just had to crop and re-size it before printing it out, the ferry belongs to, and is operated by the man who won the OBE. I picked out the colours in the photo for the matting and layering. I printed a black and white photo of an OBE onto gold pearl card and fussy cut it out, raising it up on the card with glue gel and adding some red satin ribbon. The sentiment was also computer generated, the only "real" stamping was the knot-work border which I did with a Kanban stamp. As this card is for a man, I kept the embellies to a minimum, just adding a few gold gems.
Hi, my name's Wendy Fraser, otherwise known as Papersniffer, and yes, I really do love the smell of craft paper! I'm a married, stay at home Mum of one living in Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland and I'm passionate about all thing papercraft. If I'm not crafting you can usually find me in the kitchen cooking or baking or chatting with friends over a large pot of tea.
