Happy Boxing day
We have had a lovely day again – just a take it as it comes time – we had a flying visit from my lovely friend Pat to exchange christmas pressies and then a young friend of ours came for tea so we had a few hours of fun in the WII...
Now she has gone home so Ive had a bath and snuggled into my lovely new super soft fleece dressing gown ready to watch the TV when Pete is back from his dog walking!
I've not made a card since last week but have been cutting out and I feel now I want to be back in my room …maybe tomorrow!!!
Today's card was made for a lady in class who's daughter had her 2nd son a couple of weeks ago.
All I know is the sheet was purchased from www.craftsuprint.com
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
The printed sheet
Baby blue A4 card
Blue glitter card
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
I folded the baby blue card stock in half to create the A4 card blank.
The images from the sheet were cut out and the decoupage then built up using mini sticky pads
I cut a piece of blue glitter card and stuck it to the right hand side of the card front then stuck the base image to the card front – the lettering stands out nicely against the dark blue glitter card.
Once all the decoupage was built up I used a quickie glue pen to highlight where I wanted the Glamour Dust and then sprinkled it and shook off the excess.
Before I printed the sheet off I added Congratulations Kath & Albert which made it stand out
A lovely sentimental verse about grandparents was printed in the insert to finish.
As I said above I feel I need to be in my craft room now so I am hoping to get something made tomorrow to share with you as just lookigng at the cads I have to share and they are all christmas – so its time to get my finger out – especially if I plan on a card a day again for next year – is that what you want though?
Back again tomorrow
