Paintbox Poppet Birthday Card
Hello again bloggin peeps
Hope you are all having a lovely tuesday here is another quick make from me using a lovely paintbox poppet die cut decoupage image.
I started with an 8 x 8 blank and cut a gold mirri base mat. I cut some yellow gingham paper for the base half and a pretty patterned pink for the top to complement the colours in the image I had chosen.
I had some lovely pink lace (its made from a string and feels quite rough) and cut into it at a regular interval to thread the ribbon through. I cut a lovely heart square from a cheery lynn die and placed it where I wanted it on the page and glued it into place in places I knew would be hidden I then threaded the pink lace with the ribbon in under and over the top covering the paper join and secured at the back of the gold mirri base.
I cut a pink mat and a gold mirri mat and layered them up and then added the base picture before assembling the decoupage. I then glued this in to position. I used some whimsy ticket sentiments, stamped and cut them using the ticket die and then used some distress ink to colourise them to fit in with the card. I then glued the ends and arranged them under the topper.
I created the flowers with spellbinders bitty blossoms and used a memory box leaf die for the greenery and glued to my card. I then glued the decorated base to my card and added an insert.
I very pretty card in real life, this is one of my favourite images from the poppet collection the other is the little boy in trouble but I haven't yet made a card with him.
Anyway that's all for now
Until next time
