Wonderful day today, isn’t it? Here in Belgium, the temperature rises till 30°C, quiet hot for us I would say! But I am not complaining! I love it…
As I didn’t have time to make pictures of my latest creations this week, I decided to show you this one today: it’s an old dinosaur birthday card I found in one of my computer folders, and I don’t think I shared it with you yet. So here it is…
I made this birthday card for my youngest brother a couple of years ago (We still lived in Canada at that time – “some nostalgia…” ). I love the little dinosaur, perfect for little boys! As the background is composed out of designer paper, this card came together quiet quickly. I would say, it is the colouring that took most of the time on this card.
And a little tip for you today:
Sometimes, we have to make a very quick card: A forgotten birthday or a last minute invitation or any other timely event. For those days, it is a good idea to keep a couple of premade items:
1) Have a stock of precut and prescored cardbases (approximately, one of each color).
2) Have a small box with precoloured images, so on a “last minute” project, you can add one of these images without spending lots of time on colouring, but still attaining the WOOW effect.
3) When designer series scraps are getting lost between newer, more fancy DSP, I cut them down to the layer one card size (i.e. 4 x 5 1/4 inch)
I’m off again, I still have lots of craft work to do…
