I was asked to make a card with a photo on the card, it's for the "baby's" 30th birthday. I started by scanning the photo and adjusting the colours, they are better, but not quite "normal". I then used digital papers Happy Birthday mini kit a freebie by Numb Bumm Designs HERE I'm afraid you will have to search for it, as I couldn't find the kit and didn't have time to search for longer.
I added the string, with the numbers added, from the same kit, then added the photo, I found some digi eyelets by Gina Jane at DAISIE, erased part of the string and added the eyelets so it looked like it was going through them. I added the sentiment with Papyrus and One Starry Night fonts, I thought the starry font matched the curls of the string. I printed it all out onto an 8 x 8 card. then printed the top half again on Cuddly Buddly eggshell paper to give it a bit of shine, I cut around the tags making them 3D, added Stickles to the dots and copied the flame from the number to make a border for the bottom of the card which was also Stickled. Hope you all like it. It took ages to do, but I so enjoy playing with the effects in PS, to see what I can achieve, I'm learning more everyday.
