Alice’s Tea Party  – Birthday Cards

By Linda Roos


“Hi! I’m back for another project. Making cards is not what i do often but it is fun to create some small things in between the big albums and with Diane’s birthday coming up I wanted to do some birthday cards. When I create cards I often want to make the card personal with some photos in. So I decided to make a tag inside the cards as well for a photo or something nice to write.

Because I have fallen in love with graphic45 tags I wanted to use them in the cards. When I was looking through my graphic45 dies I was thinking why not make my own flowers and use some of the sentiments from med folders & sentiments die.

The results after a lot of dies and some wonderful papers later became three cards in different sizes. One large, medium and one small using the regular, square and ATC tags.













Here comes a walkthrough and tutorial video.
