"Box for Rose's card"
I thought I'd start by showing you the finished box. It is made from cream card decorated in shabby chic style with resist roses, distress inks and Perfect Pearls and finished off with lots of organza ribbon.
"Box for Rose's card with ribbon removed"
Just to add a little suspense, here's the box without the ribbon. The central bunch of roses is stamped in barndoor distress ink and coloured with promarkers.
"Box detail showing stamped roses"
Here's a detail from the box lid showing the resist roses and coloured roses - the stamps are from an old Papermania set. OK, time to open the box...
"Rose's 100th birthday card - front"
It's funny, but I had the design all worked out and the card half-made before I found out Rose's name. Serendipity!
"Rose's 100th birthday card - inside"
Well, there had to be a big "100" in there somewhere.
Happy 100th birthday Rose! What changes you have seen in your lifetime. I wonder what the world will be like in another 100 years.
