Cards: New baby!

This took a little working on because of the text I wanted to include.  One way of doing text transfers is to use a mirror image that is either printed or photocopied using a laser printer.  I only have an inkjet so the usual way of doing this either left too much paper on my mount board and/or I ended up smudging the print…grrr!

So, what do most of us do when we’re flummoxed?  You’ve got it, I Google it!  I found a number of tutorials about transferring text or images using an inkjet printer and the one I tried was printing on to wax paper.  You have to be quick with this otherwise the ink dries and won’t transfer (hence a few botched attempts!) but when it works it’s great.  I have a little name plaque to do for our new baby niece, so I’ll let you know how I get on with that when it’s finished.  For now, here’s the ‘Congratulations’ card I created though the poem on the inside isn’t mine, I found the verse online but I don’t know who wrote it.

Oh yes, and my Sizzix Big Shot (die cutting and embossing machine) arrived this afternoon so I’ll be trying that out over the next couple of days and no doubt boring the pants off you with my excitement at being able to cut new shapes, borders and embossing pretty patterns.  I’ll try and remember to give you a ‘yawn alert’! 😂
