Party Time

 Another card from the Penny Black ‘Love London’ stamp set for the J&C Creations DT. When I saw this image, it instantly said Party Invitation to me. With so many people being certain to have Street Parties for this years Jubilee, I think this image will get a lot of use.
 The image itself was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card, then cut out using Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Ovals, S4-139. I used the second to largest die, then used the largest to cut out another oval from Red Glitter card, and one from Tim Holtz Core’dinations blue paper.
The blue oval was cut roughly in half from the bottom left to the top right.
 The image was coloured with Promarkers, and I used a pale grey to add a little ‘ground’ for them to run on.The ‘You’re Invited’ sentiment was one from an Octagonal wood block I bought at the NEC years ago, and is also stamped in Memento black.   I added the blue half oval to the back of the image with a little DST, then used some silicone glue spotted on the back of the image to matt the whole thing to the red glitter card. Silicone glue is ideal for this, as it will stick to the rough surface of glitter without a problem.
My base card is in topfold format, and I added a strip of red ribbon to the top, and a strip of the blue dotty ribbon along the bottom, then added the image panel in the centre with foam dots.
So, to recap, you need:

  1. Thanks for your visit today, Shaz. Glad you are now back with us after all your hard work. I bet the IT man is cursing when he finds yet another plea for help in his inbox, but I think we are getting there. It is a steep learning curve. I love that Westminster Abbey image. I am looking for some inspiration for an engagement card that I need yesterday, as the prospective bride is heading back to Canada on Saturday.So I am off now to see what I can find in my wreck of a room. xx Maggie
