Add something Green
For my design team piece I used the folder 'Irish Dancing' from the 'Shoes in Bloom 2 CD
I used My Craft Studio Elite to create the background paper by overlaying the page curl onto the shamrock paper before printing off. I had some green holographic star card left over from Christmas so used this to mat my patterned paper onto.
Two strips of the holographic card were then added at the edges and the topper added.
I printed the topper twice and just cut the shoes from the second one which I then used to add an extra layer to the base topper.
The little shamrock at the top right was just punched out of the patterned paper which I had made bigger so I could get just the one shamrock.
Inside the card I used the DL insert from the Irish Dancing folder and on one side I used the My Craft Studio digital die cutting to cut a blank circle to leave a space for a greeting. On the other side I added a smaller image of the shoes on the topper cut out again using the digital die cut feature and overlaid this onto a square of the green paper before printing off.
Although I have used a graphics programme to manipulate and merge designs from the CD all the Ooh La La CDs are stand alone and you do not need a graphics programme to use them.
This is such a pretty card, I really love how you have done the ballet shoes, so pretty and so Irish with the green and the shamrock, JxReplyDelete
