A colleague at school will be joining the illustrious 50s club this week. As well as teaching and manning the office she also cleans part of the school. When I came across this image by Polka Doodles I knew I had to use it. (Two digital cards in a row! Don’t tell my Copics!)
Polkadoodles Work and Play collection 6 CD
A5 white card blank
tuxedo black memento ink pad
I printed out the main image 3 times, the duster (made larger) and a sheet of backing paper. I trimmed my base image to size and used the other images to layer up different parts of the image. I fussy cut the large duster. The sentiment was created on my computer,printed out and trimmed to size. I trimmed a piece of the backing paper slightly smaller than the front of the card. Before sticking all the elements onto the card I edged them with the black ink. I used a clipart image to make a small 50 badge and stuck it to her apron.
I decided to go digital for this one mainly because I had a senior moment and thought the birthday was next month! Luckily I spotted my error before it was too late but I did not have time to colour in three images. Precoloured digi images are great when you are in a hurry.
I actually made two cards for the same person. This one is a personal one from me, the other is for all the staff at school to sign. I may get around to blogging that one as well.
Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
