It's nearly Pauls birthday, and the children always give him a card each, so I wanted to make a special card for him. I bought this image from Pollycraft ages ago as I wanted to use it for a card for him last year but never got round to it. My son has claimed this card to give to his Daddy. My daughter has chosen a House Mouse image which is still a work in progress.
Anyway, this card has frustrated the life out of me, I have been desperate to make a card like this and my first attempt which you may remember seeing here didn't work out well and promptly went in the bin!
This time I used my brain, and made myself a little template which was the perfect size for the card blanks I use ...
I coloured Fluffy in using just copics, and glittered up his tummy and horns
added a couple of printed sentiments using Microsoft word and a new font from Dafont.com and put it all together!
Now I will give you all a good giggle ... in all of the excitement of a nice looking card and having finally made it perfect, I stuck on my fully glittered pretty looking Fluffy ... and then stood the card up ....
Shock .... Horror ...
I had stuck fluffy on the wrong way so my card opened backwards! I was absolutely gutted, and had to walk away from my
craft dining room table. I then went back later on and managed to cut around the papers and restuck it on the right way on a new card blank!! So after using my brains and working out the dimensions to get it all right and perfect, I then screwed up! LOL Paul got the brunt of it yesterday in emails bless him, he knew I was making his birthday card and he had a good old chuckle at my stupidity!
