Hi all, following yesterdays post I am please to say that I am an Auntie for the second time this week! My nephew Lewis, was born today weighing exactly 7 lbs and all is well!
I can't believe my luck at having two new nephews in one week! However I wasn't so lucky in finding the stamp that I wanted to use to make my first sister-in-laws card but as it happens I think things turned out for the best as I went digi instead!
Some weeks ago I bought this kit from 2 Peas in a Bucket. I have used Microsoft Publisher to size and print the element on the front as although I am doing a Photoshop course at college, I still have no idea what I am doing!
I re-sized my image and printed it on to some lovely hammered white card twice. I then decoupaged some of the layers and added some little gems. The finished piece was then mounted to to some navy cardstock and then matted onto some light blue cardstock with 3d foam pads.
The sentiment was typed on Publisher in my favourite font, I changed the colour to blue and printed directly onto white hammered cardstock.
I used a digi image from the kit to make a frame for the insert for the card.
Finally I made a small box to send the card in with a matching digi image on the front.
Well that's one card made, now I have to think of something else for my second sister-in-law! Have a great week everyone and let me know what you think!
