Some Decor for One of My Girls and a Little Card She Made
I saw a beautiful banner that a crafter made for her daughter which inspired me to create this for my daughter's room. I tried hanging it just as a banner, but it just didn't have enough impact on a big wall. So, while I was at Ikea last weekend, I picked up these 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch shadowbox frames. I mounted each of the letters in a different box and was very pleased with the result.
I used my Gypsy to design the project. The background is a Decor Tag from Gypsy Wanderings. The circle is from George, and the letters are from Base Camp. Using the layer feature on my Gypsy made it a lot easier to choose sizes for each piece. The idea came from the Love 4 Stamps blog. There you will find a link to directions for how to make the 'fan' that is under each letter.
This is a little thank-you card that Emma made to send to her great-aunt after Christmas. She's five and would love any comments that you might have for her. :)
