Maeve's 50th Card

Here I have CASED MY OWN WORK!!!!!
If you remember I made  my name badge for the Stampin'up regional training in Reading  a couple of weeks ago. I thought the name badge  would work well on the front of a card . So this week I have been busy doing just that and here is the result.
I have to say this was quite time consuming and fiddly in part but as it was for a friend and colleagues 50th birthday it had to be a little bit special .
I used the Baroque motif stamp set with choc chip ink to over stamp the crumb cake stripe DSP.
 Rich Razzlwberry card stock was chosen  for the rose and the rosette, Old Olive card for the leaves daubed with Bravo Burgundy ink.
 I used the 5 petal flower punch and rounded of the tips of the petals to make the the rose.
Under the rose there is a 5 petal flower punched  in Old Olive card stock and  again inked with Bravo Burgundy. The smaller leaves were cut using the little leaves die from SU, they too have been  inked.
 I used a silver metal frame from the hodge podge  kit secured with a couple of tiny brads. I printed off the personalized greeting and hot foiled it in silver.

Then added a small knot of  the Victoria lace and a couple of sparklies.

For the  card box I used the new simply scored score board this is so cool. Box making is a breeze now.
I tried a different way of making the flowers for these as I wanted them a smaller size and not as tall as the rose on the card.
To make these flowers  I used  small  and medium heart punches .
For the pillow box,  I used the pillow box die, Martha Stewarts  doily  punch for the lace edging,  the four labels stamp set and punch, the tiny tags stamp set, little leaves die, rich razzleberry and crumb cake card stock.
 In the  pillow box is one of the glass bead and crystal  bracelets I have been making recently. I tried to match up the beads with the Rich Razzleberry card as you can see it is close but not quite as close as I would have liked.
Maeve loves purples, plums and pinks so I hopefully she will love these.
 You can tell if I am pleased with something I have made as you get more than one photo of it. lol
