Card for Line Managers Mum

I was asked by my line manager to make a card for his mum's birthday, when I asked what kind of thing she liked and did he have any preference I was told something that mum's would like!

I hadn't made up my mind what I was going to do but sat and went through my cd's and when I started looking through the Joanna Sheen cd's I knew I was about to find something suitable.

I chose this image from Enchanted Dreams, the image is printed onto a matt photo paper which brings out the colour and detail so well. I have added glitter to the flowers around the hat but it doesn't show in the picture, the printed backing paper is the one that is meant to go with the image but this time printed onto a heavy weight vellum. I embossed some card which I also used to matt the picture on and added some ribbon and a little flower and finished it off with a stamped calendar sentiment. I have to say that the photo doesn't do it justice and for once I was pleased with the finished result, just hope his mum likes it.


  1. Gorgeous card Jenny, no wonder your manager loved it enough to pay you lots of pennies for it

  4. Not surprised your line manager was so impressed Jenny. It's gorgeous - and it's not just down to the CD.
