Garden Visitors : Sending You Birthday Wishes

Garden Visitors : Sending You Birthday Wishes

This card has been made using the new ‘Garden Visitors’ cd-rom by Creative Crafting World.

The images are by the wonderful Pollyanna Pickering.

For this card I decide to use one of the Swallow images and matching papers from the cd-rom.

To make this card you will need :

8″ by 8″ White Card
A4 Black Card
A4 White Card
‘Garden Visitors‘ cd-rom
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads

Instructions:

Print off an image sheet (to include a sentiment) and three backing paper.

First cut a square out of black card, measuring 20 cms by 20 cms to form a matt layer and then a square from white card measuring 19.5 cms by 19.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together and then attach to the card base.

Next cut a square out of black card, measuring 17 cms by 17 cms to form a matt layer and then a square from one of the papers measuring 16.5 cms by 16.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together and then attach to the card base leaving a border between this layer and the first layer.

Using the black card cut a piece measuring 20 cms by 4 cms and then from one of the papers cut a piece measuring 20 cms by 3.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together and then attach to the card base on the right hand side, approximately 3 cms from the edge of the card base.

Next cut a piece of black card measuring 20 cms by 6 cms to form a matt layer and then using one of the papers cut a piece measuring 20 cms by 5.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together and then attach to the bottom of the card base, using foam pads, approximately 4 cms from the edge of the card base.

The topper measures 10.3 cms by 10.3 cms, cut a matt layer from white card measuring 11.3 cms by 11.3 cms and a second layer from black card measuring 10.8 cms by 10.8 cms.
Matt and layer these together and then using foam pads attach to the base card over lapping the last two matt and layers. Please see picture for reference.

To finish off the front of this card add the sentiment using foam pads.

For the inside of the card print off a single leaf insert from the cd-rom and then I have cut out and added a Swallow image from one of the Swallow inserts.
