Taylor's Two

This card is for a grand-niece who is two today.  Happy Birthday Taylor.  Can't believe where the years have gone as it seems no time since her Mum was this age.  That's what happens when you become the oldest generation in the family.

The front of the card is made by building up layers of different card underneath each other.  The first layer is the card base with the front cut down and then punched with a decorative border punch.  The final dark pink layer is A5 in size and is attached behind all the layers to support them.  I've used a digital download manipulated in a graphics programme for the main images.

The base card is a white A5 card

Papers used
White and dark pink textured card from The Papeterie, Aberdeen
Pale pink card from W Enterprises, Aberdeen
Happy Birthday backing paper is a download from Cuddly Buddly, A Patchwork of Papers - Pink, printed onto pink card
Teddy Bear alphabet characters are from a Cuddly Buddly download, Teddy Bears Alphabet - Pink, taken into the My Craft Studio Professional Programme to spell out the appropriate name and age and then printed out again so that the name can be decoupaged and small circles can be punched out of the remaining images.
