50th  Birthday Card Using the silhouette sd

This card has taken quite a while to do, I have added bits over a whole week. First I have used a white 8 x 8 card blank as a base. The silhoutte has now available patterned papers to download, and the patterned paper I have used was a free download. Using the silhouette software I  drew a 8 x 8 in sqaure and used the fill feature to load the paper, then used the print and cut feature to creat my backing paper.

I distressed round the backing paper and mounted it on the card base. Then still using the silhouette software and using the square as a guide I cut out a 5 and 0 using the outline feature to cut the two sizes and then embossed the top layer with a embossing folder and then used distress ink around the edges.

The little bear was  printed from the forever friends  cd and I cut her out and decoupaged the shawl  along. The bunting was cut from some backing paper and stuck on with 3d pads

To break up the backing paper I used another paper that I had in my stash and used a border punch to make it look like it was from a note book and stamped some lines and distressed the edges.

Country Companions

I couldnt resist the Country Companions CD as I was so pleased with the Me to You one. Here is my first creation.

Again I have printed straight to the card with a topper and sentiment, then I printed the little mouse and cut him out so I could place him on the door stop.

I then used crystal stickles on the flowers and lime green stickles on the leaves.

To finish off I have used glossey accents on his little wellies and the door knocker.

"Me To You"

Hello everyone, Ive been so busy with work and things that I have not had the time to do any card making or blogging or even visiting other blogs. But am back now and Iam looking forward to seeing what everyone has been upto on their blogs. Well I have treat my self to the new "me to you" cd rom from docrafts and its fab the images are beautiful. Here is my first creation.

I have used the a5 folded templete on the cd and added the sentiment and flourish from the embelishments and greetings and then printed straight to my card. Then I printed the pyramage image cut out all the circles, I then cut out a scalloped circle from the "me to you" paper pack and put them together with silicone glue.

I have bejazzled my card with blue and pink rhinestones and added stickles to glitz it up, and rounded the corners with my corner chomper. Finally I used glossy accents on his little nose.
