A Frozen Birthday Card

I think this card speaks for itself really – a card for my 8 year old neice Erin, inspired of course by Disney’s Frozen.

I found the blue snowflake paper on Activity Village and it was a free download. I’ve never printed papers off before but its turned out really well so I definitely think I’ll be doing it again.

I found a picture of Elsa online, printed it onto some card and stuck it to the card using 3d foam pads. I did the same with the number 8.

Erin’s name was my first attempt at embossing. You couldn’t really see it very well at first so I mixed some white paint with PVA glue and sprinkled with wintery silver glitter.

I’m really pleased with how its turned out and I just hope she’ll love it.

I think making your own cards means you can create the perfect card for someone instead of settling for a shop bought one that doesn’t quite fit the bill.
