Seven years ago, I was in Covent Garden having a drink with my cousin when I got the text from my friend Loraine announcing the birth of her gorgeous baby girl. Seven years and it feels like yesterday… A few weeks later, I gave birth to Crevette.
These two have been friends forever and it is beautiful to see their relationship blossom, to witness how similar they are, listen to their conversations, watch them ‘play teenagers’ and even diffuse arguments.
Today was her birthday and it was only natural for Crevette to make a card for his best friend. We received our monthly box of crafting goodies from Bostik earlier this week so timing could not have been better.
Crevette chose to go for a card including a photo and buttons. I simply suggested adding text using foam sticky letters. It took Crevette less than ten minutes to make the card from start to finish.
What you need:
Bostik glu dots
Bostik foam pads
What to do:
Fold the A4 piece of card.
Stick the photo using a couple of glu dots.
Place the buttons and foam letters where you would like them to be. Once you are happy with the layout, stick the letters. Add the buttons one by one using glu dots so that they look like balloons.
To add some texture to your card, stick two or three buttons with foam pads.
Draw strings for your ‘balloons’ starting from the photo.
Write the card.
