Here's what I came up with this week:
When I set about to make the card I found out I only had small scraps of white card left in my stash eek! So I had a look around for some other things I could print the papers onto. I have a packet of white paper doilies and I do love a bit of an experiment so I thought I'll have a go at printing the papers on the doilies. I used small dabs of Pritt Stick to temporarily glue the doilies to a sheet of printer paper and then popped the sheet in my printer and printed the papers over the top. Once the sheet had printed I peeled them off the sheet.
I got some really cool patterned paper doilies but I also got the pattern left on the paper too as a bonus!
I printed the other papers, (pink and orange stripe) on one of the scraps of white card I had left and used dies and hand cutting to cut out the shapes from them. The flowers are Sassafras Foldies and all the alphabet stickers are American Crafts. The little doily sticker under the candles and the heart sticker are American Crafts too from the Amy Tangerine remarks sticker book. I used real birthday candles tied up with twine and glued on.
Head on over to have a peek at what the rest of the Daring Cardmakers team came up with as we all had different paper to use, http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com
