My stepdaughter has a birthday on the 12th, & she lives in the States. It was a good thing it had crossed my mind today as her Dad is going to be away for a few days & wouldn't have been in a position to purchase a card. So I set too this afternoon to make two cards.
Here is the card for her dad to send;
The background paper was whiter than it appears in the photo. I edged it with some purple ink to make it stand out from the white card. I cut the spotty paper & placed it bottom right to which I added the frame with the lady inset - both of which were put on sticky pads to raise them above the paper. The "daughter" was layered onto matching spotty paper. The stamps are from a freebie set last year with Creative Stamping magazine.
The next card is the one I made for her from me;
I embossed a piece of white card with a new embossing folder that had this lovely plain oval in the centre. After embossing it I found that the oval had partially cut through so I removed it totally. After stamping on it - with another stamp from the same set as above - I placed it on sticky pads back in its original place to make it stand out more.
So! cards made - first thing tomorrow morning need to get to the post office.
