Birthday card for my Mum!!

Hi everyone

Today I wanted to share with you the card that I made for my mum’s birthday. Her actual birthday was in July but I wanted to wait a while before I blogged it.


For the card I used papers from a UK company called Papermania and they are from the Blueberry Hill paper pad. The frame is made from cardstock that I embossed with a brass stencil and then cut out with a craft knife and matted on cryogen white cardstock. Tilda is also stamped with tuxedo black memento ink onto cryogen white cardstock (that I buy from Craft Creations) and coloured with my Copic Ciao markers. To finish the card I added some Prima flowers that I sprayed with Glimmer mist and added a rhinestone brad in the centre and tied some ribbon around the card too.


Here is a closer look at Tilda.

I would love to know what you think of Mum’s card and thanks for stopping by. I hope to be back soon with more projects to show you.
