Mum’s Birthday Card

My Mum had a birthday ending in ‘0’ recently, so I obviously made her a special card for the occasion.

This card was the starting point for a 2019 Card & Cuppa project.

It uses a combination of Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel with Very Vanilla.

As Mum is also a keen crafter, it puts a lot of pressure on what I make, so a lot of products were strewn across my crafting desk!

The card has stamped images from the Artisan Textures Stamp Set, Well Said Stamp Set and Floral Essence Stamp Set.

I also used the Leaf Punch, Classic Label Punch and Perennial Flower Punch.

A Pearlized Doily was coloured on the white side using a Sponge Brayer and the flowers were softened using a Blender Pen to give a variegated effect.

Baker’s Twine was coloured with a Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend for the bow. There were also strips of Lace Trim and co-ordinating Blueberry Bushel Ribbon too.

Finally, I added Clear Faceted Gems to the centre of the flowers.

As this card was delivered by hand, I built up the layers and created extra depth using Dimensionals. Normally, anything that is posted is thin enough to use a regular stamp.

It’s not a great picture, but it gives an idea of the various layers I created.

I decided to create a larger square card, instead of my regular rectangle and made a co-ordinating envelope from DSP too.

Happy crafting
