Michelle's happy mail!!

I have just finished talking to Michelle on facebook and her happy mail got to her so I can pop it on here now. Michelle and I swap cards and decided we would call it happy mail as it just cheers up our days when they plop onto the mat through the letterbox.
I used my new storybook cart for this one,ooooh I love it, its so versatile!!
I made the overlay for the card in ds by welding the letters of her name to 2 rectangles ( made by using 2 squares to avoid the dreaded 'x' error!!!) and because i was using double sided patterned cardstock I was able to pop the little accent overlays for the letters on 'flip shapes' function and cut it all out in one go!!! i love ds!!!! ohand I did the heart the same way too. The sentiment on the inside I made with my xyron design runner ( I like that too!!!) I inked theegdges of the card,all the letters and the little heart to make them stand out a little .I used foam squares to mount the letters and the heart but I had to cut them up into little strips!!! I gave them a little bit of sparkle with glitter glue and then went over the top with anita's 3d glaze ( love this stuff too, it makes things look so pretty and adds a new dimension.) I popped some little dovecraft gems in two of the corners and added a little bit of ribbon too.

I am going to bed now!!!! thankyou for popping in!!!

  1. How lovey that you and Michelle still do this Lucy and what a beautiful card you have made her! I did smile at your comment re the red x as I always use a square and stretch it when I'm welding too!




One little comment goes a long way!! your special words always make my day :)
