I seem to have spent my week making cards for 1 year olds and 2 years old. The above card is for our friends little girl who is one this week. I attempted to make a girly version of the other 1st card but my Craft Robo seem to throw a wobbly and cut it all over the place - I wasted so much card. So I designed this one myself. I love my Craft Robo very much but designing templates seems so longwinded as I tend to make the template in Inkscape and then import it into the Craft Robo software in order to cut it. Graphtec, the makers of the Craft Robo have bought out some new software which lets you do the whole thing in one piece of software. I ordered mine last week and am now just waiting for the posties to get the backlog of post delivered.
The cards above and below are also designed using the Craft Robo. All the paper is from DCWV - the top two are from the Springstack and and one below is using paper from the Christmas stack. All three cards in this post are using some wooden embellishments from Hobbycraft. I love them as they really brighten the cards up.
I have then used balloon brads from Lakelands that I cut the metal spiky bits off and then attached coloured wire to them using foam pads which then are used to attach them to the cards.
The little round letters for the names were free from a card making mag some months ago and I have glued them on top of either stars or plastic flowers. A few peel off greetings for the Happy Birthdays et voila...
