This weeks challenge is to make a card for a child. I always think of adults as 18 & above so hopefully I just scrape in with this card for a 17 year old lol!!
This card is a classic example of never been able to charge in full for labour!!
My order was for
"A card for a red haired girl with L plates & a nervous looking father with the wording - Happy 17th Birthday Sazzy Good Luck"
This was an order through a friend of mine who I do the line dancing sizzix dolls (earlier in my blog) it was her friend who's the grandma of Sazzy. What a tall order !!! Not only the thinking time but also the making time.
I decided to give my sizzix girl some trendy Ellison die cut clothes & doctored the doll die cut to fit (basically lopped off the head & hands & stuck them on LOL!!) Unfortunately this then made 17 year old Sazzy alot taller than her nervous dad!! so I had to give him a Quickutz shirt & hand cut his trousers to make his legs look longer (wouldn't it be lovely if it was that easy to add a couple of inches in real life!!). All very time consuming but rather theraputic !!
The rest is cuttlebug & stash with Papermania DP.
