The big prize
I was asked to make a card for an elderly lady who is reaching a significant birthday, has premium bonds, but would not wish to have her age displayed on a card. So this is what I have come up with.
The backing paper and champagne topper were printed using a My Craft Studio CD ROM. I decoupaged the bottle and cork on the topper and mounted it onto black mirri card.
The two phrase 'toppers' were cut out using a Spellbinder label 1 die and then trimmed and mounted onto black mirri card cut out using the same die. They were fixed to the card with foam pads.
The £1 000 000 was used in an oblique reference to her age and the 'premium bond prize' was cut from a printed leaflet.
I would like to enter this card into the CD Sunday challenge 'add a number'.
