Spotty Birthday Card

It’s SIL’s birthday next week, so it’s time to make her another card! I hope she likes it.

The dress card topper was free with Crafts Beautiful Magazine a couple of months ago. The spotty paper was in a pad of decorative paper I bought in The Works in Oxford.

When in Oxford, in the Cath Kidston shop I spotted some alphabet stamps and thought, what a good idea for cards. Unsurprisingly the Cath Kidston stamps seemed quite expensive, so I didn’t buy them, but I did go onto ebay…

These stamps cost £2.20 inc. postage and today was the first time I used them. I didn’t quite get them in a perfect line, but it’s still prettier than my handwriting!

(I actually got two sets of alphabet stamps – I used the other smaller ones in my recent Home Sweet Home Card).

Rather than stick a bit of ribbon onto the back I used another new purchase on the back…

This stamp was one of Vistaprints free offers and as I always do I only paid for slow delivery. It’s a pleasant surprise when it finally arrives! I can now stamp my makes with a personalised stamp to say that they were made by me…

I’ll be using this on all my cards (or at least that’s the plan).
