Today is the birthday of a very special person. So special that they get a hand-crafted birthday card to celebrate the occasion.
I got the idea for this card from a picture I saw in a Michael’s flyer. I believe it was for a rubber stamp set but I thought my drawing skills were up to tackling a jar and a bunch of flowers so I grabbed a scrap of watercolour paper and did just that. After colouring it in with watercolours and outlining with a black pen I cut them out.
Next I made a tiny tag and added some text with rub-on transfer letters before tying it to the jar.
To assemble, I took a piece of cardstock, folded it in half, and glued on some decorative paper. I used embossed vellum from an old wedding invitation in my scrap folder to make the doily. I didn’t like the visible line of glue along the edge so I covered it up with washi tape.
Finally I glued on the jar and attached the flowers with some foam dimensionals from an old Stampin’ Up kit. Voila, a simple bouquet for a special somebody.
