I made cards for both Mum and Dad recently, for their birthdays...
This first one is for Dad.
He loves his sweets... esp the retro ones.
I fell in love with these images when I found them on a piece of wrapping paper!
Infact, I got about 40 images on the wrapping paper...
all jars of sweets, inc: wine gums, humbugs, mint imperials,
aniseed balls, sherbet lemons, parma violets... all with glitter here n there!
I used my new bargain punch (£1 at a boot sale)
to make the shelves..and used a (candy-striped) DCWV paper for backing.
I decoupaged some of the tags / labels and added glossy accents to some
of the sweets.
Dad loved it! x
I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Mum loves her kitchen and all things american...
and I knew as soon as I saw this image - that she would love it.
I have had it quite a while...think I got it on PC Crafter website.
I decoupaged lots of the bits on the shelf and added some glossy accents to some.
I found a poem that I thought she would like, too.
A bit of red ribbon down the side, and
backed on red gingham... it went down a treat!
