Friend Linda

Hi everyone, and the card I am showing you today I have made for a friend of mine who has just got her first laptop.  She hasn't used a computer before so has taken herself off for a few lessons.  How perfect an image for her birthday card then than this one from Mo Manning called, 'Checking FB'.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers, giving her a paper-pieced dressing gown and matching slippers as well as providing her with a trendy green lid to the laptop. The fab papers I have used on this card are from Design House Digital, tearing the edges of some layers (& inking the edges of the bottom layer too with Distress inks).

I then used the same papers for the inside of the card, teaming them with a sentiment from Sentiments4You (within Crafts4You).

No, I haven't abandoned my cutter on this card. I created the scalloped edge border on the front, cutting it from plain white card as well as a design paper and used a 5-petal flower from Bird's Cards to echo the style of flower on the dressing gown paper. I then made myself the 3-petal bud style flower cut file to match the paper too. The sentiment I treated as a print & cut and I also used my Silhouette to cut the circle mat for that sentiment.
