Today we celebrate the birthday of a wonderful person. She is sweet, funny, warm and thoughtful. I wanted to make a special card for a special person.
I started off by die cutting an entire sheet of PTI Select white cardstock. Then I started stamping the Larger Than Life images in pretty, soft pastels.
I placed the bouquet in a mason jar that I die cut and stamped. Then over that, I put a vellum die cut image. I used Zip Dry glue to adhere them all together. I've found that it works best with vellum. Wrapped the jar with some twine and hung a tiny tag.
I wanted the jar to look like it was on a wooden table so I inked up the woodgrain impression plate and used Kraft cardstock. My vellum butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I put a lot of love into this card for Merry. I hope she can feel it through the magic of the internet.
Happy Birthday Merry! xo
