This time of year is a busy time for Birthdays in our family. It was my daughter’s Birthday recently, so I purchased a Kolette Hall’s 27098 design from the Silhouette Online Store. (just put the number in the search bar in the store.)
This one is pretty similar to the “Sister” card from my last post, but I like the style..so why not, although I did change it up a bit this time. Here’s the original:
Here’s my version, I extended the front panel so it was the same depth as the back panel then added a contrast paper strip and added the “age” button.
With the black backing I needed to add a lighter colour somewhere to write the message. This is what I came up with.
Then, I went crazy with the Black & White Theme for the gift wrapping too – who said “less is more”? 😉
I used the Silhouette Software to design & cut a little custom box for one of the presents we gave her. When I’m not playing with paper and card, I play with metal and I made the little Sterling Silver spoon in a workshop. You can read more about that over on my Metal work blog …..
