Have a Magical Birthday Alfie


Today I have my DT card for The Crafty Bloggers Network Inspiration,  pop over and take a look at the beautiful DT cards they are fabulous.  The sponsor this month is Rick St Dennis who has some fantastic digital images for sale in his Etsy shop.

I have also been working on some birthday cards for friends and family this weekend, the months are creeping forever onwards and I am behind with my cards, I usually have them all done and in a folder ready to go.  This is a card for my grandson who is six this month.  You have seen this digital image from Rick St  Dennis  before, he was used in my altered dictionary letter "M" for magician. I thought he would be ideal for a childrens' card and I am sure my grandson will be thrilled with what I have done for him.


I wanted to get away from my usual square card and thought the image looked good standing alone so made up a folding card with a narrow left hand side.  The card was embossed with a Tim Holts embossing folder and coloured with DI in scattered straw.I printed the image onto white linen card and coloured it with watercolour crayons, this was then fussy cut ready to attach to the card.  The impression I wanted to give was of a magician casting spells so added the swirls (Magnolia Doohickeys). A few stars were added to the swirls and plenty of glamour dust for a sparkly effect.

Only one more thing to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALFIE  have a fab 6th birthday.
