Happy birthday Mum card -
Day 66 of my 366 day challenge
Hi Craft addicts!
So I was asked to make this card for someone and thought it would be good to show how I made it today as it uses a variety of companies' products.
I first of all took a A5 white card and used it as tent fold card. I then added a strip of ultra strong red liner tape to one side of the card and added some gold foil (from TODO) and burnished it so that it stuck to it.
I then cut out a shaped mat in cream Adorable Scorable using the Tonic die "Reach for the Stars". I also cut out the "Happy birthday" Tapestry die from Tattered Lace and coloured it in a variety of Specturm Noir alcohol markers.
I didn't want the Happy birthday centre section of the die-cut so cut it out. I then glued the whole panel on to some black cardstock (I really love Lynda's black card from Creative Crafting World) and cut round it.
I then stuck it on to the cream mat and glued the whole thing to the main card. Using the letters "MUM" from Docrafts letter sticker collection, I added them to the centre of it.
I still thought it needed a sentiment, so I found the "Happy Birthday" pennant style just right so glued it to some black card and cut round it again. I then used some foam pads to give it some height.
I found 3 yellow buttons roughly the same size and using my hot glue gun, placed them on the bottom right hand corner of the card.
I left the inside blank but would or could add an insert too,
