21st Birthday Newspaper Card

This card is A5 in size and is made using white linen effect card …… and was still wet when I took the photos!!!!
Newspaper Card Aston Villa
The brief for this card was Patrick, 21, Aston Villa, and his cat Bella amongst other things, so I think I ticked a few boxes.
I tried to match the main colours of the Aston Villa strip to other sections of the card …..
……. and work in a message from the cat!

I put very simple decoupage layers on my newspaper cards to add texture and definition and then add a touch of Ranger Glossy Accents to highlight them further.

This is what the “bones” of my A4 sheet of      card look  like after I have printed it,  having already designed it in Publisher and then copied and pasted the sections I want to make the decoupage layers with.
