Herb card - Jane Shasky CD Rom - the heart of the garden - from Joanna Sheen

I made this by card by:

  1. I printed this decoupage image from the CD. 
  2. Then I cut the different elements of the decoupage image.
  3. Using Crafters Companion collall glue I matted and layered the image.
  4. Then I printed the sentiment labels from one of my Polkadoodles CDs and cut out the one I wanted.
  5. I took a sheet of A4 green card from Crafters Companion and using the Ultimate Crafter's Companion Pro embossed a straight line vertical across the middle of the landscape card so I had an A5 size card.
  6. Now on the A5 size card using Crafters Companion collall glue I added the herb topper and the Polkadoodles happy birthday sentiment.

3 Today and loves trains and animals

This train card is great for youngsters.  I made it from a Crafters Companion CD back in 2009.  Today it still has appeal.
