Sister – 80th birthday

Created on my Craft Robo Lite using a beautiful template made by Anne (Fuschia from UKScrappers).  Don’t look too closely at the antennae as they refused to cut properly on my Robo so I drew them in by hand & I’m useless at drawing!

I coloured the mat with Promarkers, scanned it then imported the photo into Craft Artist Professional so I could colour match the word art.  Oh, and it’s from my Mum to her sister – I’m not THAT old!!

Backing paper from stash, Duck Egg Promarker, flat back pearls to finish.

Easter Cards

Last year I started my Easter cards on Good Friday so I decided that this year I wouldn’t be quite so last minute;-)  The crosses were designed in Silhouette Studio (my own design, for once) and cut on my Craft Robo Lite, which I don’t use as often as I would like.  My lack of a dedicated crafting space means it stays in its box for most of the time.

The simpler crosses were embossed in my Cuttlebug, and I decided on a simple finish (well, okay, I ran out of ideas!) The greetings were produced in Craft Artist Professional & the tiny crosses in the corners were created by chalking around peel offs which I then removed.
