Commissioned Christmas Day Birthday Card


Here is the card I made for a customer who wanted a birthday card for someone who has a birthday on Christmas Day.  Yet again she wanted a fairy, not fussy and nothing associated with Christmas.  I always feel sorry for people born so close to Christmas so wanted to make her card nothing remotely like Christmas but had to keep it fuss-free - yikes!!!  The image again is from the My Craft Studio Walk in Wonderland CD.  I have used my Sakura Stardust clear pen in places to add some sparkle/shine.  I have done some simple layering, added a sentiment off the computer, fibres, card candy and a personalised insert which went down a treat.  My customer was pleased with this card as well and amazed how it had come out nothing like she'd expected but much better - oh I shall get a big head - no I just think that if I get things right she'll be back for more and it will help me to help the charities.


This card fits the following challenges:

Magical Monday - Wings
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes
A Crafty Little Place - Anything goes
Flutter by Wednesday - Open theme
4 Crafty Chicks - Birthdays.
