Ello ello ello
Well as promised a card I made up yesterday!
This is from a kit bought from card making downloads
It is called Boys In Blue and is designed by Card Buddies
As with a lot of the kits by Card Buddies there are loads of pages to print – this kit had the 2 for the envelope, the main card, the insert, a backing paper, a decoupage sheet and a sheet with assorted sentiments and ages!
So after decided which insert I wanted – I opted for a Birthday – I printed all the sheets onto 128gsm matt photo paper and began the task of cutting it all out!
For the main card I only cut roughly as I stuck this to a sheet of white card stock using Crafters Companion Stick & Stay glue – then cut it out properly!
I never have success 1st time with these lovely shaped cards – I get them al cut out and when I fold in half they never quite match up so have to snip and trim to fit!
So once I was happy with the card itself I attached the insert – again I cut it out, folded in half and tidied up the edges then attached with a small strip of double sided tape to the centre of the fold side – on the top and the bottom – I know some people just stick one side – some use a full length of tape – so it really is a matter of personal choice here.
On to the decoupage – this was big chunky pieces so nice and easy to cut out and of course to stick down – I used big sticky pads and just cut them up to fit smaller areas
The top layers were shaped before the sticky pads were added.
Once the decoupage was complete I stuck on the sentiment – it was just a plain and simple police saying – Hello Hello Hello!
For embellishments – well nothing much was needed so used glossy accents on the badge, pompom and band of the helmet, his nose, belt buckle and shoes!
I finished by adding 3 very tiny pale blue buttons to the jacket using Pinflair Gel
The envelope was simply cut both pieces and score where indicated – then use double sided tape to attach the 2 pieces together.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the jolly policeman
See you tomorrow folks
