This is a card, which I made for StampARTic challenge.
The rules demand to make a card with some space for a present - money, cd, etc.
I have been thinking about this card for a long time, and this challenge made me do it right now =)
So, let me present my new card:
I chose two main colors: chocolate and cream. I think it looks pretty tasty. =) Yet I wanted to make it elegant and "strict", so added no color splashes there. And only two colors symbolize a man and a woman - a unity of two different creatures =)
The edges of the card are cut with my CraftRobo with the pattern I drew myself. The card has two windows, where you can see two hearts glued with a pop-up adhesive square to the inside part. One heart is made of cream velvet paper:
The other one is made from chocolate cardstock, which I embossed slightly with "Birds and swirls" Cuttlebug folder and then I brushed the textured parts with transparent nail polish to make them glossy and dark:
Both hearts are framed with square frames, which I embellished with chocolate velvet ribbon and thinner cream satin ribbon.
Also I put a bunch of Prima flowers (white and cream) and a skeleton leaf in the corner:
And the sentiment says: "When two hearts beat as one..."
Now, let's open it and take a look inside!
And there's a present inside... The sentiment continues the phrase: "...the third is conceived. Now two of us have THREE hearts." I wanted to add obvious "Honey, you're going to be a daddy soon!", but I thought that a "present" says more than that.
The "third" heart is a woven paper heart, made of the same papers: cream velvet and chocolate embossed. With a smaller heart inside (I can share a scheme of pleating if someone needs that):
Also framed with velvet and satin ribbons. And added some crochet lace.
Actually the pregnancy test is not real (don't have a real positive one yet), just printed it and thickened with a foam layer. But this "model" shows how it can be attached =)
It's my second project of "you're going to be a dad" card. (The first one can be found here) I've heard so many stories about early-morning yells from the toilet "I'm pregnant!" and I thought that this touchy moment should be more gentle and romantic, especially when a couple is planning and the pregnancy is wanted. So I'm thinking of more designs of announcing it and surprising the father-to-be in a good way.
Thanks for looking!
And as always - comments are appreciated!
