Happy Birthday



I have been asked to share how I make a card not so easy when you just go with the flow and enjoy how it turns out, change my mind so many times on the way, I call it experimenting and always learning whats right and wrong about it. I think beginner classes, Utube, Pinterest, Fiskars, Sizzix, craft magazines etc would be a good place to go as your seeing how they put it all together and Im certainly not Utube material lol!! Would frighten the life out of everyone!! Just use your imagination and have fun, we all improve along the way.

 So here goes
Have used a bought 6x6 scalloped card, matted and layered with Lilliput Lane papers, I don't measure these matts, just make them slightly smaller (approx .2cm) than the main card. I then used a corner punch to round the corners.  The centre piece, I used Tonic Studio Envelope 1 dies and just used the decorative part, cut on card then flip over die and line up along edge of first cut and fingers crossed it came out alright lol! I use a glue pen to stick to main card. Then using the Purple card, used two dies ( I used a scallop one then placed a basic rectangle die inside), one inside the other to make the frame(outside frame dimensions should be slightly bigger than decorative frame so won't be noticable, added foam pads to underside and place on top of decorative piece. Decorated with flowers, corner die underneath from Memorybox  and Spellbinder butterfly,made from dies.




bye for now
