Commissioned Birthday Card


One of my customers wanted a birthday card for her special friend.  That's all I was told so I had a massive amount of choice.  For my card I decided to use my new Joanna Sheen Patience Strong CD.  I printed off the image three times so that I could decoupage the flowers.  I didn't want to detract from the image/words so I have just used plain cardstock.  The card is finished off with a personalised insert, flowers, ribbon, black headed pins and a sentiment off the computer.

This card fits the following challenges:

Paper Cutz - Project for spring

This is beautiful Kym! Love the softeness of the flowers, and then the 3d flowers on the bottom corner. The words are beautiful and especially love how you designed the inside of the card. I think your customer will love it, and the friend receiving it will be over the top happy with it.

Thanks for joining us at Craft Us Crazy and hope to see you joining us again!
