Birthday Cards For One Of My Sisters
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
In my first post of this month I mentioned that several family members have their birthdays in February so I’d have to make a card each from Mam and myself for each of them.
This post is showing the two cards made for one of my sisters.
What I Did
I sat with my mother and we chose a couple of toppers we liked from some kits I had. I then chose some papers for matting and layering, and collected together some more of the little flowers and trailing ivy that I’d cut out using dies for a previous project.
I cut the papers to size, at the same time trimming the white paper a little before sticking the sheets, folded in half, as inserts inside the cards.
For the first card I stuck the topper to the mat using fingerlift tape, and then the matted topper to the base card using 1mm deep foam tape.
For the second card I stuck the topper to the mat using 1mm deep foam tape, and then the matted topper to the bae card using fingerlift tape.
I added the flowers and foliage, adding faux gems to the flower centres, and finished off by adding peeloff greetings inside and out.
