DD's Birthday Card
Our DD's birthday is today, so I actually finished off a card I'd started looonnng ago. She loves dogs, though she doesn't have one at the present time, so I know she'll like this card. I used chalk on her pants, hat & hair. Because it was over 5 1/2 inches square, I didn't have a piece of paper long enough to add a liner for my inside greeting, so I decided to add a piece of designer paper edged with a fancy punch. Trying to think "out of the box"!!! ;-) It's actually the same paper as the card front, but due to lighting (& my lack of camera skills) it looks much brighter and actually more true to real life. I used an "edited" inside photo. I also edited the card front photo, but where I'd used chalk on her pants, it looked "blotchy" in the edited version. Do you think I NEED camera classes?!!! LOL!
