A friend asked me to make a 60th birthday card for her Mum, apparently she likes purple and flowers so this is the design I came up with. The letters and numbers were cut using a little die set a picked up really cheaply from The Range last year, it has proved to be very useful. I run the card throught the Xyron before i cut it using the Bigshot, this is really helpful as the small letters are then adhesive. I ran them through an embossing plate after cutting to add texture. The image is from a clear stamp set by Kanban I've had it ages but this is the first time I've inked it up. The silk flowers i picked up for a very reasonble price at Boyes in Holbeach, they have lots of crafting goodies and very good prices - well worth a visit. I had the chance to pop in there yesterday as the pupils were all sent home as there was no water at school - you've never seen so many smiley teachers on a Friday. I coloured the image with Promarkers.
