A ruby wedding Anniversary.

Hi Crafter's

Sorry it's been rather a long time since I have been into my little blog to update it. 
It's just one of those things life gets in the way.

Oh well better get on with showing you what I have been up to......
Here is a ruby wedding anniversary I made using my Pazzles Inspirations to cut the  card shape and the large 40.    I run the 40 through the big shot in an embossing folder that had been coloured with a memento ink pad. The wording on the card is computer generated.
I had already cut the pieces for the top and bottom of the card because I was going to stamp the sentiment but didn't have quite the right stamps........ I know.... why didn't I sort out the stamps before I started  ?????........ 
I didn't want to cut into any more card  so decided to try out a technique I had read some time ago. I couldn't quite remember the full details,  but enough to do an experiment. 
I wanted the wording just in the right place so printed it onto tracing paper first. I put some double sided tape on the back of the shape I wanted to print onto, and attached the shape on top of the printed sentiment, I used tracing paper so I could see the shape through the back and get the wording just in the right place. Once the in the right place I ran it through the printer to print onto the shape. In the experiment I used a scrap piece of card and had a perfect result. So was confident enough to go ahead with my card.
I was rather chuffed with the result.


Well I hope you understood my rambling. I am pretty sure I haven't  explained it as clearly as the  as the lady did on her blog. Hopefully it was clearer than mud LOL

Well that's all for now.  Thank you for stopping by. I will be back soon.
