Commission card



Just a quick post today. I made this card for a lady who lost her mother last year and this will be the first Mother's day without her. She wanted a card to put onto the grave. Unfortunately I didn't get enough notice to be able to laminate the card (she needed it yesterday as she's travelling up this week) - but I did add acetate onto the inside so that the verse would last the weather for a while. The acetate was added like a flap so that the lady could still write something on the card. I also added some 3d gloss to the main image to help protect it and make it last a bit longer.

This is pretty and elegant Sharon - love the image and lace. I'm sure the lady will think it's beautiful and very appropriate.

Its a really beautiful card, I'm sure she'll appreciate it. Its very hard when you lose your Mum but she must be getting some consolation by getting a card for her Mum's grave. If she puts the card in a plastic lunch bag it will help to keep it.
