Spring Birthday Card

This week Papertrey Ink's MIM idea is too fun to pass up. It's all about adding computer-generated print to your die cuts. I use the computer for things like place cardholders but have never tried fitting them into a die cut.

I printed the 'SPRING 2012' on to Aqua Mist paper and then cut the Seed Packet frame out. I then stamped the image around it. That image in the opening is from Made by Janet. It's actually an egg shape that I printed and trimmed to fit behind the opening.
See that sweet doily under the card? That is from my pen pal Jen. Love that.
Thanks for stopping by:)

Ah, that doily is oookkayyy. Heehee. ;-)

Lovely card. The computer generated text is fantastic. Well placed. I shudder when I think of trying to get my dinosaur of a printer to behave enough to do that. What is that they say about bad construction/trades people...That they always blame their tools? That's me. But really, clever you!
