Celebrate Card

YAY! It's Monday... this weeks card is a Birthday Card for my Daddy this time.

I usually find male cards hard to do but this one came together quickly.  I used the Minc for the word celebrate... so in love with the gold foil 😍

I'm still trying to figure out the right settings on the Minc to get a perfect foil each time, my results are a bit hit and miss but I'll get there.  

This was a really easy card to do, it was all designed with the Silhouette Program.  The word Celebrate was printed with a laser printer, foiled with the Minc, then the card put through an ink jet printer to add the coloured balloons.  I added a sentiment inside to finish the card off.

So much fun 😊. Happy crafting till next week!

Something Shiny for Valentines Day

A little bit of Minc, a little bit of Silhouette, a few really cool fonts and a printer means I can make cool cards like this...

Happy Valentine's Day to all those crazy lovebirds out there!!!
