Of late most of my cards have involved colouring in an image, however when it came to making a birthday card for my sister-in-law I ran out of time so I used a coloured image from The Paper Shelter instead.
Paper Shelter – Vintage Seamstress
Kraft card, light brown and dark brown card
Happy Birthday acrylic stamp
grey ink pad
two old buttons
I printed out two copies of the image, one I trimmed to size for the topper base and from the other I fussy cut the girl and her sewing machine. Using the grey ink I stamped the sentiment into the top right of the card where the background was lightest. I matted and layered the base image onto the light and dark brown card leaving a narrow border each time. I edged the final mat with the ivory lace before attaching it to the card base made from the Kraft card. Finally I stuck on the two vintage buttons from my button box.
So no colouring and some embellishments added, not my usual CAS style. My sister-in-law is a keen quilter so I thought she would like this image.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
