FOR MY MUM'S 85TH BIRTHDAY







Hi,
My mum is 85 yrs old very shortly. She used to love frilly fluffy cards but her tastes have changed.......she said to me the other day......' Less is More Nettie'.........as she knows I cram everything I can onto everything, so for her especially I have done Less is More........ well less for me anyway....

For the card I have used Basic Grey papers, a Lost Coast Design Stamp which has been partly glossed and crackled (although am not to sure if you can see this in the photo) the raised greeting is covered in white glitter net. She is also into Green at the moment.

The Slide Mailer has been texture painted then Sparkle Modge Podged. The pictures are from Crafty Individuals, one mounted on stampboard and glazed, not sure where the shells came from. Inside has been stamped (Inkadinkado) then covered with white glitter net. The picture inside has been covered in acetate then 3d glossed so it gives an opaque look.

I hope she likes them, have made her a pendant as well from one of my moulds, but it is not finished yet as changed my mind midstream...........as you do.........

Thank you for popping in and thank you so much for all the comments you leave me. Annette x

How do you stick the glitter net to the surface??? See, I don't know even essential stuff like that. Useless, me.
Gorgeous work, of course. Some day I'll land on your doorstep with a big plaque "will clean for lessons"!
Hugs
