1945 was a good year for babies, lots of wonderful people were born that year - some of them were Rover Scouts together in Linslade!!!
The Rovers are having several meetups this year so I am preparing .... in advance? Trying to.
Here are two cards I made over the weekend. I used some papers from my stash and then cut out the numbers 7 and 0 using some vinyl templates I have had for years.
The idea was to then dicut the leftover paper and use as a background for the numbers. Unfortunately the numbers when cut out where too large to go with this idea so I recut the leftovers to fit the front of the card leaving a small margin round the edge.
I attached the numbers and then decorated the cards as follows:
I used gold peel offs at the top right and lower left of each card - CELEBRATE and Congratulations.
I stamped Happy B*day in the centre of the 0 to connect up the spots. I stamped off with black ink and then added gold ink so that the gold looked as though it was outlined with black.
On the other card I added gold peel offs to spell JOY to set off the dark stripes.
PJ chose the spots background on a peach card so the striped on kraft card is put away for another birthday.
