I meant to make a Birthday card for a friend of mine – and now her birthday has passed me by, by a month or so at this point. Really, there is not any excuse I can give that justifies letting a birthday slip by. Since I have been home this week, and I have not been able to do much at all, I finally got down to making the card – now I hope it does not take me an additional month to give it to her.
This is just simple stamping – creating a background and adding a sentiment. I cut the scalloped square in the stamped background paper so that the mat would show through. Then I stamped the sentiment and cut out with a square punch, and layered it over the scalloped square with foam squares to give a bit of dimension. Finally I added stickles over each solid petal to give a raised and glittery appearance.
After I tied the bow – I pulled a jeweled butterfly brad out of my brad drawer, and use it to anchor the bow.
