In previous posts I have mentioned the Creative Inkers’ Birthday club, whereby we send each other birthday cards. I recently acquired the Large Letter Framelits and was just itching to have a play. What better opportunity than to personalise a birthday card.
Using the Large Letter Framelits, this card can easily be adapted to use any name (provided the name isn’t too long). Equally you can stamp any image. In this case, I have used some of the smaller stamps from the Daisy Delight stampset to create a wild flower look.
Once I had stamped the card front I laid out the letters on grid paper to ensure they were straight and equally spaced then placed washi tape across all other letter to hold them in place. Then carefully laid the ‘washi taped’ letter onto the card front and run it all through the Big Shot.
To elevate the letters up, I die cut another three of each of the letters in Old Olive and carefully glued them together placing the stamped letter on the top and then place the letter stacks back into the card front.
Besides using names, you could use “Mum”, “Dad”, “Sister” and “Aunt” for example. The options are endless.
Needless to say, this card is not a standard size (8 x 4″) so the Envelope Punch Board came in really handy to make my own envelope to fit this card perfectly.
