A Birthday Card for Sarah

After chatting to Sarah about her program yesterday it seems she will be actually on air on her birthday so I thought Id better get my fingers out and make her a birthday card especially from her new Cd, so I hope you will forgive me for using an easy way out this time, no stamping and definately no colouring.

Ive used Sarahs favourite design on her cd, the Poppy, and this time I have used the decoupage sheets though I did adapt it to fit the size card Ive made, what Ive done is to cut the picture edge off the first layer and just use the oval design in the centre.

I printed two background designs, one for the insert on paper and printed a verse on to that, and the other design I printed onto white card and printable acetate, then matched it up with the card design. After which I folded them both in half and with the insert in place, punched holes for the ribbon, I used a Red Organza ribbon to attach them together.

After cutting away the white edges left after putting all the pieces together, I have stuck the base decoupage sheet onto the acetate sheet and built up the image with Pinflair glue, shaping it as I went. The greeting was printed onto photo paper and layered up onto a piece of red card, I didnt want to put it on the acetate top, so stuck it to the printed card under the acetate in the right hand bottom corner.
