My Baby is 30 today!

Where have the years gone - seems only yesterday, that I was driving to the hospital to give birth 15 minutes later!

This is his card - an 8" square! I printed the base image, side design and age and wording directly on to the card.

I then decoupaged the picture. Adding 3d glaze to certain bits. I didn't have any white flowersoft for the froth - so used stickles. I added glaze and stickles to the little beer mugs too. I also glazed the 30 and his name. You can't see the effect in the photo but it looks enamelled.
Finished with a peel-off and a couple of card candy buttons.

The inside is vellum made from the matching insert from the cd. I had to resize the insert in publisher to make two square inserts. Incorporated another of the images to the lefthand side and a verse to the righthand one.

Having made such a large card I needed an envelope or similar - so with help from Suzanne's tutorial on her Blog I made my first card bag. Not bad for first attempt. I kept it fairly simple and scored a couple of lines across the front beneath the ribbon, and attached another of the topper images; and as flora doodles are much coveted in our family as I didn't put any on the card - there is one on each side of the bag!

This is his card - an 8" square!
