Good afternoon everyone,
Just when I thought it was safe to go in the craftroom and do something other than a Thank you card, my daughter asked if I could make two for my Grandsons, to give to their teachers. Needless to say, I made them and here they are.
The only brief I had was to make them pretty. I can do pretty, no problem.
I did them both the same shape to save arguments ( we all know what siblings can be like ) just varying the toppers.
The first one is a clipartfairy digi stamp from the 'Bobby Sues Pretty Flowers' range, coloured with promarkers. She was matted onto cream and lilac mats using spellbinders Grand labels eleven. The backing paper is Docrafts, from the woodland folk and friends cd. I printed it onto 220gsm supersmooth card to add strength and used the same die to cut the shape, but in a bigger size. I turned this mat sideways. The final layer, or card base, is cut using the largest of the dies in the same cream card as the topper mat and again turned on its side. To finish I added two papermania flowers, some card candy and a cardart sentiment tag.
I added a verse to the back of the card with the individual names of the teachers. My eldest Grandson was leaving primary this time, so I tried to use a verse that was apt. I think it did the trick, my daughter said Mrs Mitchell loved it. As did Mrs Cunnington.
The topper on this card is a Pink Gem design called 'Cupcake Ted'. The backing paper was again from Docrafts woodland friends cd and the rest is the same as the one above. Hope you like them.
