happy birthday amy

it is my twin daughters birthday this week. i struggled to make cards for them today, not really feeling very inspired. but anyway here is one of the cards (i forgot to scan the other before i posted it.

this one is for amy. i was looking through my craft stamper mags for inspiration and came across an article on shrink plastic. i haven't done this for a while so i did.

i cut a large rectangle of plastic and stamped flowers on it with black staz on (must get some more colours!). i coloured parts of the flowers in with aqua promarkers. the plastic didnt shrink very evenly but i think it is ok.
i stamped the backing paper and a piece of pink card edged with brilliance ink with the same stamps to match the stamping on the plastic.
i kept the theme of stamping on the corners throughout the card.
the ribbon on the card is a sort of metallic mesh, it is not very flexible so didn't lay very well (but better than it looks in the picture).
i free wrote amys name in the corner and then placed a plastic square over each letter. i was quite pleased with the card in the end, it is a different style for me , but it is good to try different styles.
