SEIZE THE BIRTHDAY / A BIRTHDAY CARD FOR REESE



A quick post to share a cute "Olaf" card that I made for Danny's grand-niece Reese who is turning 3 years old! Reese is in love with everything and anything Frozen!

A quick Google search led me to a million Olaf images. Miraculously, I managed to import this image into my Silhouette! I really should have written the process down for 'next time' !

I accidentally created a cool blue-ish ice looking reflection on the card base (you can see it on the pic below) by adhering an icy blue piece of paper behind the popped up main image panel, which then reflects to the card base! It looks really neat in real life! 


BTW, you would never know by looking at the photo, but the sentiment is stamped in a lovely Caribbean Coast blue ink (Ranger Inks)!

I am playing along with a 'new to me' challenge at Seize the Birthday where "Anything Goes". 

Happy crafting :)

  3. This is adorable! You may not know this, but Olaf has always wanted to experience summer, so your warm weather today (significantly warmer than Toronto) is perfect for him! Reese will love him! You are so clever to figure that out - I wouldn't even have tried! lol!
