I don't often get loads of time these days to craft and make cards so a couple of weekends ago when I was Hugo the dog free I crafted for all I was worth.
It's amazing how quickly you can forget how much you love messing with paper and glue. Can you tell I really enjoyed playing? That's the price I pay I suppose for running a craft design business..I don't get to craft as often as I'd like. I'm creating the products and my lucky Design Team members get to do most of the playing. ( The next Funky Hand craft CD ROM is coming along nicely by the way..it should be available late April early May time)
Anyway less of my crafting woes! Here's a card that I have been able to make. I know it's a bit late for the old Valentine cards etc but I thought this card would be good for any sort of 'love' occasion..I'm keeping it safe so I can just add an appropriate sentiment should the right time arrive...
'Our Betty' clear stamp collections. The Love 'n' That set. I coloured her using promarker pens. The heart backing paper is from my download I Heart You and so is the paper that I used to layer the stamped image.
I wanted 'Betty' to stand off the card so I decided to set her to one side and add a simple red ribbon, tied in a knot to the other side to balance the card design. I cut the layer for Betty from more paper from the I Heart You download and glued it to the bottom paper first. Then I tied the ribbon around both of them.Both backing papers were printed onto card by the way. Once that was done I glued them both to the base card.
As soon as they dried I just added Betty to the layered section with foam pads so she stands up off the card. with the ribbon passing underneath her.
I hope you like the card as much as I enjoyed making it!
speak again very soon.
