80th Birthday

DSC01235

It’s my Mum’s 80th birthday next month but i’ve made her card already as I knew which image, from my stash of cds,  I wanted to use.

Dad used to grow many varieties of fuchsia and Mum has managed to save a few for the garden this year.

The decoupaged image is from the Cross Stitch cd by My Craft studio, it has been printed onto super smooth paper and layered up onto backing papers and borders from the same cd. I’ve used a stepper card, folded with the help of my Hougie board, so that I  could size it to fit the image.

The ‘80’ is in silver card and cut with my newly acquired Craft Robo Lite cutter.

The card is finished with a ribbon and bow in 2 shades of purple to match the images.

I’ve written this with Windows Live Writer so we’ll see if it turns out ok, if it does it’s easier to use than blogger for layout.    Fingers crossed!
