It's sometimes quite difficult to come up with an idea for a commission card when you have no idea about the intended recipient, as in this case. All I knew was the lady's name... Marie.
I decided to go with what I thought was a safe option... an initial.
I cut out a large M on my Portrait from silver card, together with its offset image in plain white hammered card. The foliage is a pair of symmetrical garland diecuts which I simply snipped into two pieces to lay over the letter and added a few flat backed pearls randomly over the letter. The two mounts are cut with Framelits dies one using the right side and the other using the back of the hammered card. 
I hope that both the 'commissionee' and the recipient will be pleased.
Some time ago I made some of these cards for a friend to give to her Goddaughters, the Mum then commissioned one for herself and one for her husband and she had them all mounted into shadow boxes to display on her wall. I guess she was pleased!!


  1. Brilliant Chrissie! I love it! Such a clever design! :)

  2. This deserves to be mounted in a shadow box, too, Chrissie, but then I feel that way about all your designs! This is sensational and I'm sure Marie will be more than pleased! Enjoy your Sunday! Hugs, Darnell
