I decided to use the Debbi Moore Deco Delights CD and as it was designed to work with the Deco embossing board from the Glitter Girls that was pressed into service too (pun fully intended) Because Deco is all about glamour I had some lovely deep blue glitter card and blue mirror card in my stash and decided to add gold for a truly decadent feel.
I chose the image from the CD and printed it onto white card then cut her out. I embossed the panels using the guides on the board and decided on this shape. The front and back of the card are joined by tiny folding tabs at the top and the bottom so that it stands up. Because the card doesn't open I added a plain white panel to the back for us to write on.
I also added the Deco corner motif at the base of the rear panel. To finish the card I added the small feathers and flowers to the lady's hat and shoulder.
For the lid of the box I embossed a white mirror card panel to frame the gold panel and printed the greetings using the computer and a font called Broadway which has a lovely Deco look to it. I added the embossed corners and gems and feathers and a single flower.
I also added the embossed diamond motif to the sides of the box lid and added more crystal gems. I added a lining to the box and the lid using one of the matching backing papers from the CD and highlighted the centre of the motifs with gems and added gold embossed corners.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
