Appley Dapply card

Me again!

One of my girls at work is celebrating the 1st birthday of her daughter, Emily.  I have just bought the Crafters Companion Appley Dapply CD Rom and stamps and needed an excuse to use them, so I decided to make Emily a card.  This was actually one of the projects on the CD but I was very pleased with how it came out.  I shall certainly make it again.

It is a gatefold A5 card with a decoupage plate in front which then becomes an easel card to make it stand up.  Clever, isn't it?

This is the decoupage plate which has five or six layers.  Fairly easy to cut out, except for the tails!!

I printed out the alphabet from the CD Rom which is different from the project, but I thought it made the card more personal.

And finally the insert also matches.  I hope she likes it. x

Wow Liz - stunning card. Could you show me how to make that style at the April crop? (won't be at the March one) or at our 3 day weekend one in May?

LOL I am always losing the tails off my Penny Black mice!!

that is just so lovely Liz, I have fond memories of my Beatrix Potter collection of books from when I was younger and Appley Dappley was one of my most favourites....beautiful

Thank you very much ladies for your kind comments. I have always loved Beatrix Potter and have read the books to both my children and grandchildren. I'll be happy to Karen but I can't take the credit for the style - I used one of the project from the Crafter's Companion CD. x
