Crossword

Hi Everyone my card today is late for the

I had so many ideas that I put off making my card until I decided which one - Wrong!
Anyhow last minute I thought of a crossword as I know a few men who spend their time with the daily newspaper doing their crossword. I made it up on an Excel word sheet and then transferred it to Photoshop, where I put it all together with background dp.  The pencils were then cut out on my Cameo and 3D'd onto the card. Here is the message in case you can't see it, On your birthday you need no clue, to know all good wishes are sent to you. Happy birthday.
digital paper - A Fish Design
pencils - Shelia Reid
crossword - mine

Such a clever card Faith, aren't men's cards so hard.I made one for our son last year and had to add code and all sorts of stuff to it, took me hours, (he is a software developer). What we do for the love of card making eh lol...and the recipient often has no idea how long it took either ;) Viv xx

WOW, what great work on this, Faith! I love cross word puzzles, as does my daughter, and would love to CASE this for a birthday card for her. Fortunately, I have lots of time to consider the idea (since I have neither a Cameo nor your skills with Photoshop) because she has an October birthday. :-D
