Thought I'd share this A4 card with you all as it really is something different. My friends are going to a 80th birthday party and want to give a card as a family. The man in question is a huge steam fanatic and loves his traction engines, as do my friends. However, finding craft-able images to create a suitable card is difficult - there isn't anything that really captures the magnificence of a steam fair or indeed the wonderful engines. So we came up with the idea to use photos my friends took last year at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. I took them into My Craft Studio professional and came up with this:
I used three photos to create the insert, backing paper and the decoupage. The scissor tool in MCS made making my own decoupage really easy, and I love the effect of the engine coming off the page. All the text was also created in MCS. Obviously a card this size and depth needs an envelope, so I used the Crafter's Companion Enveloplus board to create an envelope half an inch in depth, A4 size. It fits a treat! I shall be delivering this to my friends later today - hope they like it, but I reckon they will, what do you think?
Take care Zo xx
