3 for 3…Cards
I am 3 for 3 in making 1 card a month so far this year--yay!
My goddaughter turned 21 this weekend (I know, was I like 2 when she was born?--ha ha ha), so I set out to make her a card.
I was going for the Vegas-y feel…and what better way than using the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada" sign! I got the cut from Silhouette Online. I used Arial font for the words: 'Funding', 'for', 'Las Vegas', and 'Nicole'--all bold except for 'for'. The "Fabulous" I found online and thought it was perfect, then I realized the F is different after I had finished the card :( I outlined the "Funding" with a silver pen and added some bling.
Paper piecing is hard work!!! I got glue all over the place. I even used a Martha Stewart ballpoint-tip glue pen and I still had trouble. I guess practice makes perfect :D
Thanks for looking!
