Birthday Card


It was my Mum's Birthday last week and she is quite a card maker herself.

She had commented that she doesn't often receive handmade cards so I set about having a try myself.
I began by using some wax and melting it this to create a background.

Then I used double sided tape to attach to a card for the background.  After that I used my Big Shot machine and the Sizzix flower layers dies to cut some paper flowers for the base of the card.

Following this I added some little silver gems to the centre of the flowers for a bit of glitter.  Next I used a butterfly die from "Signature Collection" by Sara Davies to cut two butterflies.

 After that I added some little blue gems to the outer edges of the one butterfly.  Then using sticky pads I layered the two butterfly cut outs and added these to the card.

I think my Mum liked it.  I have had a go at some Christmas cards too which I will share with at a later stage.

Bye for now
