Hello all, I hope this finds you well and having a good week so far.
I'm well and truly back to work and feel like the Easter break was a lifetime ago-working in a school is definitely full on most of the time!
My card today is the second card I made for my daughter's birthday as I couldn't decide which one to give to her. She loves mermaids so I made one of those first, then took this photo of her little puppy Evie and thought it would make a good card for her. In the end I decided on this one and I think she was pleased with it. Evie is such a cutie-a cross between a Shih tzu and a yorkshire terrier and she has the biggest ears which just won't lay down-hence her name (she's named after a Pokemon who has rather large ears lol!!!)
I made an easel card as there were so many things I wanted to put on this card I needed the most space possible!! I die cut a frame for Evie's photo using an x cut die (which I am a bit disappointed with really as it doesn't cut very well -and guess who can't find the receipt???)
I used papers from First Edition and added some paper flowers and pearls and a little wooden heart. I die cut Kara's name and the sentiment is computer generated. The chipboard flower was a magazine freebie and the corners on the base are punched with an xcut punch. The white strip is cut with a Martha Stewart doily punch.
This is the card I forgot to photograph before giving it to Kara so she kindly photographed it and sent it back to me:
