Picture Cards

I love adding the recipients picture to cards, I think nothing else personalises quite like it. It is my daughters birthday tomorrow and I cannot believe it but she is going to be 12!! We were looking through some photographs last week and I commented on a picture of her and how sweet and innocent she looked there, how I wished she would stay like that forever. Aimee looked at me and said "but you said I would be your little girl forever". Bless! I therefore decided that using the picture and wording for her birthday card would be perfect.


The wording reads "However big you grow... you will always be my little girl". The tree symbolises her growth and the hearts obviously my love.


All the layers of papers have been brushed with white acrylic paint.



Here is another picture card for an upcoming 40th birthday. I have also given you the sentiment circle in case you feel like being cruel, mwahahahaha..........

Fantastic cards Karen, you use colour so well. Aimee's card looks almost like it has a lovely frill to the edge, a lovely effect.
