A Coquettish Hello...

to view the image up-close, please click on the watermark

Today I have another "gently passed up" card for a recent publication call. I actually really like this card, mostly because I created my own template for the fan. If you would like a printable template, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to email it to you! (Please keep in mind that I'm new at this, and this is a .pdf file.)
For this card, I began by printing the template on some pretty designer paper. I then cut out each piece, sponged the edges, and glued the slats together. Next, I threaded some gold cord and ribbon through the punched holes of the fan, adding some sparkly jewels at the ends. I trimmed some card stock and more of the designer paper for the background, stamping my sentiment a francais for an elegant and inviting card.

Regina so pretty! I'm trying to think if the Word Window SU punch would work, of course it would be tiny, but I wouldn't have cut!

This is gorgeous!!! I cannot believe this awesome card was passed up. Some of the things that aren't passed up, should be! Thats why I no longer subscribe to any of those magazines. Hugs,
