Daughter's birthday cards, Clipart Fairy and My Craft Studio.

Morning everyone, where did our lovely spring weather go? If we can't have the sun we'll just have to carry on making bright sunny cards. Here's a few  cards I made for some girls at work, I think they're bright and sunny, how about you?

I love this first one, I was told fairies, girly, pink and lilac, flowers and butterflies, my favourite ingredients. I couldn't decide which, so she got the lot. The image is from Clipart fairy, she has some lovely designs on her website. When cutting out, I always leave a small border of white around the image , it's neater and if you glitter around the edges it appears to glow.

All the artwork is printed on 220gsm supersmooth card, that's as thick as my printer will take. That's ok for the image, but I found a single layer is'nt sturdy enough for the backing, so for this reason I usually mount the topper onto a double layer. The top layer has the main sentiment printed onto it using MCS, glitter all around the edges and use foam pads to layer the two. Finish off with a bow, some flowers printed from MCS countrside garden cd and a parchment butterfly using the pergamano butterfly grid. I think the criteria was met.

This next one was for a thirteen year old girl, who, according to her Mum was still a bit of a tomboy.

Again, a Clipart fairy image was used, this one is from the 'Pia' kit. I imported into MCS  to personalise it, by printing Chloe's name and age on the t-shirt. I didn't put a daughter sentiment on this card, I thought the name and age was enough.  The rest was pretty much as the card above.

Hope you liked them, thanks for popping by......
