Popcorn commision card

Evening all, 
I just thought id pop on and show you the card I have made this afternoon for a commissioned card.
I was asked for an anniversary card but for 59 years so had no specific theme i.e. ruby or golden. I was looking through my CD's and decided to make a Popcorn card. I have the romance/love CD and all the stamps but decided to go with my favourite thing decoupage/pyrimage.

I have printed out the image at A4 size as I was making an 8x8 card I wanted the image to be the main focus.  I have also used the CD to print out 2 backing papers, I have used one on the front in the 1/2 circle and 1 on the inside.
I used My Craft Studio to create the sentiment as I didnt have one in my stamps etc that fitted the occassion.

Here is a close up view (its upside down and not to sure why but you get the idea) of my handmade roses sprayed with CC's spray and sparkle iridescent. This is the first time I have used this on one of my projects an im really pleased with the effect.
I think I will make a nice box/envelobox for this rather than just the normal envelope as I think with the decoupage and the paper roses its rather bulky. Ill post pics when Im finished.

Hope you guys like it and as always your comments are appreciated

P.S. welcome to all my new followers and thanks for all the wonderful comments ive been receiving over the last couple of weeks, it means a great deal to me xxx


  1. Beautiful Marie!!! Love everything and your roses look so pretty! A really special card. xx

  2. It's gorgeous Marie and I bet the lucky recipients will be delighted with it. Every time I have made those roses for cards I have had to make a box because they are so deep!

    I tried my first decoupage and box this weekend and loved it ... it is definately going to be one of my favourites..
