OMG, I am havin' such a ball with these crazy birthday cards lately. This is another card I made for my sister. Man, she hit the JACKPOT for homemade cards this year! I wish you could have seen her reading this out loud in front of everyone. She got so tongue tied and then got to giggling.... Seriously, it was hilarious watching her. What a hoot! That just made my day so needless to say, I was pleased as punch!
Ok, so this is a little digital image from Squigglefly and what's really cool about their images is, they come with a mirror image too! That's a first for me as I've never seen that done before, but boy it sure does come in handy. Take for instance this little crazy bird. I wanted them to sorta look like they were talkin' to each other. So I wanted him to face one direction and say something and then I wanted him to face the other direction and talk again, and these two mirror images worked great for this. I pretty much just made text boxes in MSWord and then pasted the images beside them for the design. Pretty straight forward but it took some doin' since text boxes can be kinda quirky if you know what I mean. I also printed the images onto some old October Afternoon scrap paper that I had in my stash and then cut them out. So the little bird's body is paper pieced but the rest is colored with my Copics. I added a strip of polka dotted DP along the bottom edge and rounded the bottom corners too. As a finishing touch, I threaded a button and glued it to the right side for a little added dimension. And that's it....
oh, except here's the BEST PART!!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!! Is that great or what?? Man I do love this card. I'm so glad she got a kick out of it too! Ok, now it's your turn...... What?
