Still no cards but something different


Gosh it,s been a while since I sat down with some gorgeous paper and made a card or 3D project and I miss it heaps!

But I did get an order the other day for four  personalised Brag Boards (you can see more of my wall art over at JeMbellish).

I use a 45cm x 45cm x 1.8cm canvas for the Brag Boards.

The background colour is painted with acrylic paint and the lettering and stars are cut from co -ordinating cardstock and stuck with clear drying glue. I give it a few coats of clear varnish to protect it and then add some ribbon on the front with coloured clips to hang the childrens artwork, certificates or photos and some string on the back to hang on the wall.

I have finished three and the last one is almost done so I'm hoping to make a card or two in the next few days!!

I have linked this post up with House of Hepworths . You should pop on over there and check out some really really creative ideas.

Love this, what a good idea! Happy Birthday! I have to say that for me 40 was much easier that 30 and 50 was a breeze but as 60 approaches I am not too happy!
