Radford Semele, Grand Union
The church here, which burnt down several years ago, is still being rebuilt.
David promised that I'd make a card for the young lad who visits the shop regularly. So here it is.
I wrapped some blue paper around the spine of a white card blank and butted up a strip of silver paper that had one side cut with a Martha Steward punch. I ran a strip of silver peel-off strip (which looked like rope) down the join.
The photograph was matted onto silver, blue and more silver card and stuck in the centre of the card and a corner of more peel-off that looks like rope.
We took a photo and I made 2 copies, cutting out the frame and the knot which I added to the base photo with sticky-fixers.
I used the same punch to make the strip at the back (which looks vaguely like rope work) and stuck it down the centre of a white card blank.
To finish off I tied a bow with some paper rope (couldn't find the hessian) and stuck it down with a glue dot.
