This was a card I made last year as an order!!!
And a tall order it was too
The only info I was given was - she was to celebrate her 50th birthday - she would be lounging on a tropical beach - and she loves the odd glass or ten of wine!!!
Oh and she has a great sense of houmour!
I racked my brains for something different - and totally out of my comfort zone!!
I saw the doodles sheet on Crafts U Print - again by Lee Jacobs so bought that
Cut it out, made up the decoupage, and used the glossy accents for the bikini top and flip flops but what next??
I did a google search for a tropical beach scene and found this one - it was perfect!!!
A bright yellow sheet of A4 card was folded to create my card blank the I used an EK SUCCESS border punch to take off the open edge from the card front - and added a piece of blue holographic card behind to make the front the same size as the back again!!!
Using my Cricut I cut out Congratulations with a shadow too and added below the image - and a huge 50 was cut and stuck to the top corner
It was a huge success - loved by the recipient, the lady who ordered it - and I quite like it myself - but certainly wouldnt like to have it sent to me!!!! lol
