I mentioned a couple of days ago that I’d made cards for Little Cobs to take to school for the end of term, to say thank you to his lovely teacher, his teachers Assistant, who helps Little Cobs with any problems he faces – (Little Cobs has Cerebral Palsy, so does encounter some problems).
I posted pictures of the card which I made for his teacher, a couple of days ago (you can find it —->HERE<—-)
Todays ‘show and tell’ is the card I made for the Teachers Assistant, who is Little Cobs helper. Daughter No.2 tells me that she’s a bundle of fun and that Little Cobs loves her to pieces. So … I came up with this card just for her….
The flowers are crocheted with a sort of cotton mix wool. They’re lovely to feel. The flowerpot was a stamped image, and I painted it with watercolours it to make it look more ‘real’. The card is quite dimensional, and the flowerpot stands out proud from the card, curved, just like a flowerpot would be.
I tried to capture the depth I managed to get to this card, (by curving the pot), but couldn’t seem to find the right angle …. this photo probably is the best shot out of them all, but even this one isn’t great…
Although you can’t see it in these photo’s, the pinky red heart was given a little dimension too by the addition of Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss – more expensive products which do exactly the same job are available, but quite frankly, I think I’d rather save a couple of pounds and buy this one which I get from ‘The Range’. The 3D clear Gloss gives the ‘lipstick drawn heart’ (not really lipstick – I printed the heart onto the card) a kind of ‘wet lipstick look’.
I’ve removed Little Cobs real name from the front of the card in these photo’s but the card front reads: “A Simple Thank You but with a lot of” ❤ … then it has his name, and under that it says ‘Age 6’.
And that’s all there was to it!
It was a total joy to make and so simple too.
Well, all that’s left for me to say is … Have a wonderful Thursday all. 😊
Sending love and squidges, from my corner to yours ~
