1st attempt.... The paper slipped and I had to do it again
2nd attempt... It printed OK, then I realise I'd made it in portrait and it should be landscape.
3rd attempt... Re sized it, moved everything around, re did the border it looked fine...I printed the top half, looked good, folded it the other way printed it, went to stick it in the card then realised that I'd put the fold to the wrong side.... so the top of the insert was upside down.
Now your probably thinking why did she fold the insert in half to print...well I was using an A3 sheet folded in half as I've only got an A4 printer, and why did I do an insert, with so much on it, well....I'd got all these other images that I wanted to use..my brain was just not functioning, I got it right in the end though.
Now for the photo's, It was dark, I was already late for his party...I snapped away, with a light shinning on it, didn't have time to look at them on the PC, so it ended up with me not getting even one that was halfway decent, shadows everywhere or too light. I really shouldn't have got up that day. I'll have to ask if I can have the card back and try and get a better photo. Anyway I've put 2 pics on here one very light and grainy the other full of shadows and grainy, can't make up my mind which is the better of the two, it's a shame I never got a better picture.
Now Mason just loves Tom & Jerry and 101 Dalmatian's, so I thought I make a card with them on it. Found the images on google, decoupaged them, then I searched for a background I could use as I didn't want them to be floating around in the air.
I had a photo of Mason and he was laying in almost the same position as Jerry, so I tried to cartoonize (think that's a word) the photo, decoupaged it and put him next to Jerry on the card.
As it was an A4 card I had a bit of space left so I added a few more decoupage Disney characters. Designed the greeting with design Master and cut them with Robo from sparkly silver paper with a blue miri card mat.
He was well chuffed.. Look Mummy that's me with Tom... he love the inside too, so it was worth all the faffing about, and he's still got it on a shelf in his bedroom.
Here is the original photo of Mason,which I used to make the cartoon image with
