DIL's card

Card Front

Close up of decoupage


As well as my eldest granddaughter's birthday on Valentine's Day - it is also my youngest granddaughter's mum's birthday on the same day!


I LOVE this Sandra Kuck image, which I bought last year when attending a demonstration locally by Tina Fallon. It reminded me so much of Bea, and I was going to keep it to use for her 3rd birthday - but decided that she probably wouldn't appreciate it, so I have decided to use it for her mum instead.


Having made up the decoupage I searched through all my stash to find something suitable to mount it on. I finally settled on this bronze card from my Kanban stash, and searching for other pieces to mount it on - I came across a piece of spritzed card that I had made, which I had cut a nestablity shape from - it was perfect, so with a little trimming I created a frame, bringing the decoupage over it slightly. Then triple mounted the frame on to the card. The sentiment was from another sheet in the series, that has smaller versions of the image on it. The ribbon along the bottom was a freebie Laura Ashley ribon with a recent craft magazine. Finally I tied an organza ribbon around it, and stuck on a matching silk rose (both from Joanna Sheen).
