There are lots of birthdays in the family this time of year... so I've been making birthday cards. Check these out!
|This is for my Sister. I used pattern scissors to cut out different sizes of card, patterned paper and the cake picture. I layered the papers and glued them onto the front of a blank card. The "Happy Birthday" strip came from a cut out sheet I have in my craft box. The most difficult thing was deciding which paper to use! I grabbed the felt tip pens to write a personal message inside.|
|This card was for my eldest nephew. He turned 15 at the end of last month!! I used patterned washi tape to cover the front of the card (same card set I used for my sister's card) and glued a pearl blank card on the inside so I could write a personalised message with gel pens. He was happy. |
Aren't I clever?!
Now I am working on a Mothers' Day Card for my Mum. I was getting too excited about paper choices this morning and decided I better put it away and get cracking on the school work. So much school work!
Shelly tried to assist this morning... or should I say... Shelly entered the room where I was sitting on the floor surrounded by paper and tape and pens. She walked right up to me, sniffed all my materials and settled in for a nap on top of my large patterned paper pile. Her mat was right beside the pile of paper!! Anyway, she was very curious but not very helpful.
That's that then.
