a recent card

Good afternoon everyone

Today I have a card to show you that I made back in January & had forgotten to show it to you.

As you can see it was for someones special birthday.



The base is a white card onto which I had embossed the flourish & oval frame embossing folder. The "Happy Birthday" & the "60" fitted inside the oval just right.  The HB was heat embossed in silver & I am sorry to say that the 60 was a silver peel-off.  Sadly the embossing folder left a line beneath the embossing so I put the card on my score board & accentuated the line & added a second one to make it part of the design.

The flower with the swirl was from a freebie set on an earlier magazine & the embossing folder was part of the freebie too.  I stamped the flower 3 times along the lower part of the card in silver EP then stamped it 3 times on floral paper.  The flowers were then cut out & placed over the stamped image.

Oops! I have just spotted that the right-hand flower has got bent up - I hope it didn't go in the envelope like that.

This evening it is the Mold II club night - so tomorrow I should have photos for you,

'Bye for now.
