Alphabetti Spaghetti

Afternoon All x

I thought I'd show you the birthday card I made this afternoon.
Ideal for people with three letters in their name!

Start off with two 5"x7" cream card blanks. One will be decorated on the front and back (M and A).  The other will be decorated on the right hand side of the inside of the card (X).

Cover the centre of each panel with a post it note (cut down to 5.5cm x 7.5 cm)

Stamp all over with various styles of the same letter. Here I've used a mix of Hobby Art, Lili of the Valley, Indigo Blu, Inkadinkado, MSE, Docrafts and See-D's with 'Walnut Stain' Distress Ink

 Remove the post it and roughly draw around the blank area with a fine liner pen

 Blend some distress ink around all four edges of the panel

Put the post it back over the middle and drag some ink 
over the bottom and right edges to create a shadow.

This just gives it a little bit of dimension

  To assemble the card I glued the back of the 'A' panel to the blank panel to make a zig zag.

Clear as mud?!

Hope you can work it out, here's the finished card:

Hope you have a good week, whatever you're doing.
