A 1940's card............

It's my friend Anne's birthday today.  She and her husband Andy are really into the 40's era and go to lots of events centred around this time - they are going away for a weekend in a few months where you have to dress up!!!!!  Perhaps it's their age.......... lol.  Anyway I decided to theme her card around this and used my 40's disc for CraftArtist.  Everything on the card, which is an 8x8, the insert and the envelope (which you can just see in the background) was made using CraftArtist - with the exception of some Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper on the base and some lace which I coloured with Distress Inks - oh, and the photo of Anne herself.  I printed out the main layer which I then tore, crumpled and distressed and then printed all the elements which I decoupaged.  I've just had a phone call from Anne and she's over the moon with it!  So much so she wants to come over and see how CraftArtist works - perhaps we will have another convert!


  1. This is a brilliant card for Anne on the 40's theme (I resisted buying that CD). I'm not surprised she liked it and I'm sure she will enjoy CA too if she is tempted .

  2. Brilliant Karen I'm sure Anne will be amazed at how simple it is to use:)
