It's our beautiful daughter Bev's birthday next week and she prefers plainish things with minimum fuss, so I have to radically change my usual mindset to make her cards...! LOL!For this one, I've made a not quite DL size card (she's not fussed on large cards either...) using the white with green flowers cardstock for the front but trimming it with my scalloped scissors so it leaves a little of the card beneath showing. This, I have edged with a Lettuce inkpad (Adirondack) so it shows under the scallops.
I stamped a small square of white card with the two small stamps (bird & birdhouse) using the Lettuce inkpad again and mounted it on black card then edged the black card with a black inkpad so no white shows round the edge.
I cut a square of green Bazzil and corner-punched it before topping with a small square of patterned vellum. Using sticky-dots, I adhered this to the card.
The stamped, mounted image was then ahered onto the vellum with a couple of 3D foam squares.
Using a green fineliner, I then hand wrote 'Happy Birthday' around the green square.
To finish off the front I then tied a green ribbon around the spine and used a glue-pen to adhere some glitter dust to the bow.
I scanned the flowered card into my pc and reversed the colourway so pale flowers were on a green background and printed this on paper for the inner. which i also scalloped. My message was printed onto white paper and cut down with my scalloped scissors and adhered to the inside.
Thank you for looking - I hope you like it!
