Clearly I've been working on a bunch of birthday cards! I want to make sure I have what I need in case I get hit with a time crunch. I REALLY need to get more cards made for MEN - obviously this isn't one! :) Here's how I made it:
- Background: The patterned paper came in a paper crafting magazine and I had a real challenge figuring out how to use it. I finally decided to pair it with this purple paper. The mat was cut using a Spellbinders die from 5 x 7 Enchanted Labels 28. To shape the patterned paper, I drew around the inside of the die with a pencil & then cut it out with scissors.
- Focal: The focal was another one I pre-made. This one used stamps and dies from HOTP (die from 6 Layered Labels and 2 Swirls, stamps from Greetings and Labels). I matted this on a double mat. The white was cut with a Spellbinder's die (Fair Isle Pendent). For the purple mat I drew around the die and cut it out with scissors.
For the inside, I simply cut another shape from the 5 x 7 Enchanted Labels 28 set out of the purple.
