This is my second version of this card! And I like this one a little more than the last! The papers are part of the Pink Petticoat Vintage Florals set, which came free in a magazine! I absolutely love them! I've kept the layout of the card quite simple. The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with my trusty old nestabilities! This time I've added a bow of blue gingham ribbon instead of the pink I used last time, which I think stands out a bit better. I've used my quickutz die for the butterflies! a very good buy! I use it quite a lot! and I've stuck them on with foam pads and added lots of little blue adhesive stones, to make them stand out.
This card was made by request! My oldest, Adam, put his order in for his own birthday card when I was busy making the pink 30th birthday card a while back!!! This one is from his brother, James! For the faces, I found a colouring page which I've printed off onto a skin tone coloured piece of card. I've then cut out of the template, the eyes, nose and the black part of the mouth. I've used my nesties to cut out the circles. I drew on Minnie's eyelashes and made her a bow from my ribbon stash! Its amazing how easily Mickey was transformed into a Minnie!
Where has that time gone? Well there really was no doubt about what to put on his card! He is absolutely 100% Disney Cars obsessed and what with the next movie due to be released on 22nd July I decided to "Cars 2" theme the card! I did a quick google search for some images and found this fantastic image. The Cars 2 movie is about a world series Grand Prix. On this picture from left to right is Tokyo, London & Paris and they all merge into eachother. I decided to split it into three and came up with this 3 page card. I printed two copies so that I could cut out and layer on the main characters.
I can't wait to see his reaction when he opens this!
Hi and Welcome to my blog! My name is Zoe, I'm 35 and I live in Hartwell, Northamptonshire. I love making cards and shopping for making cards! I have been married to Ian for 10 years, together a lot longer! We have two boys, Adam, 8 and James, 4. We also had a little girl who we lost to an incurable disease, called Sandhoff Disease, at 2 years old. She would have been 10 this year! Since having James 4 years ago my card making has more or less been on hold, but I am just about getting back into the swing of things!
