I was so involved with 'pre-teacher' training stuff that I almost missed a little chap's Birthday a few weeks ago - thank goodness for LOTV 'pre-coloured' images - phew:
- 6" x 6" square white card blank
- backing paper from DCWV's 'Juniper Berry' stack
- SU card stock to pick out the colours in the backing paper - I used 'Night of Navy' and 'Pool Party'
- pre-coloured LOTV Cute Square, die cut with a circle die - it's off the page so I could centre the image within the die more. Backed with a hand cut 'Night of Navy' circle
- a 'belly band' (I still grin at that description Elizabeth!) across the card using both SU colours, the top one was punched using a Martha Stewart edge punch called 'Lattice Edge'
- Britannia dies letter set for the name 'Joe' - I do have a love/hate relationship with these letters though - just in case you're wondering about ever buying them, even though they're a good deal cheaper than most others and do cut really well. For a start they aren't in perfect alphabetical order across the die set (must get round to marking the backs with each letter using a permanent marker) but no way would you want to separate them. It's very tricky to differentiate between some of the letters, EVEN once die cut. The letters are just too fancy and scrolled for my liking - trust me, I sat with an F and a J here for flipping ages before deciding which was actually the J - even though it still looks rather like an F to me :(
- the number 8 also was die cut using a Britannia dies set and mounted onto a circle of card
Then I dropped everything and ran for the post box. I didn't even stop to properly brush my hair, just hoped I didn't meet anyone I know :) Which reminds me of a friend going back MANY years. She was very blonde with fair eyelashes - and wouldn't even open the front door to anyone without having applied her mascara :)
