Nana Donna's Congratulations Card...

Hey Ya’ll,

This is a card we sent with Nana Donna’s winning package of goodies from the Kitty Contest.
The card, itself is 8 ½” x 5 ½”.  The chocolate mat is 8 ¼” x 5 ¼”.  The decorative mat is 7 ¾” x 4 ¾”.  I used a decorative punch on all the corners.  The frames are from Lacy Labels.  One is just put on the other and cut at the same time to make the frame.  The larger frame is 7.50 wide by 4.50 high.  The smaller frame inside is 6.00 wide by 3.40 high.  The flowers are from Calligraphy Collection and cut at a height of 1.40.  The Congratulations is from Holiday Cakes.  Both layers are cut at a height of 1.50.  The leaves are from Calligraphy Collection and are cut at a height of .70.  The flourish is also from Calligraphy Collection and cut at a height of .80.
The entire card and all layers are inked with chocolate ink.  I used a white opaque marker to add the little dots around the frame corners.  All of the flowers have a gem added to the center.  These are all Swarofski Crystal Gems.  I wish you could see the actual card because the sparkle is amazing.  The pictures do it no justice at all.
The inside of the card is matted the same at the front. The sentiment mat is 7” x 4”.
This card and all it’s layering became quite thick and since it was going in a box with her winnings, I made a box for it instead of an envelope and the final package turned out so nice that I added the pictures of that too.
I know she will enjoy the blog candy, but I really hope she enjoys the card even more.
Thanks for looking. Lots of new information coming today.
Most Sincerely,
Bobby
