365 Cards Day 172 ABC's and 123's
This is a simple card for my granddaughter's little friend, who is approaching her first birthday.
The teddies are Penny Black and I have made my own alpha stickers for 365 Cards challenge today, by putting double sided tape on the back of my card before I zapped it through my Cuttlebug, using the Babyface Alphabet. Once cut, I just had to peel off the backing and adhere the letters in position.
I have been playing around with punches too. The flower was a plain one also from a Cuttlebug die, but I gussied up the tips of the petals by popping them into a scalloped corner punch. I removed the corner guides from my punch and used it upside down so that I could see what I was punching. The punchies in this picture show the before and after flowers. I think it adds a little variety.
I have been out in the garden today, poor thing had been sadly neglected of late, I think I'm going to have to get a man to come and do a bit of maintenance, it's all got rather overgrown! It's surprising what a drop of sunshine inspires one to do!
