A Quickie Birthday Card


I wanted to make something just a little different than what I’ve been creating lately.  I decided on a Birthday card to add to my collection of Birthday cards.  I really had fun making this one and it went so quickly because there was no coloring involved.  Let me know what you think.

Birthday Card for Blog

I used Kraft Paper card stock for my card.  Inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Tore a page from an old dictionary sewed around the edges.  I distressed it too.  Then I just added various types of flowers, pearls, a feather, & a brad.  The sentiment is a rub-on.

This is a great type of card where you can use up flowers and other elements that are just collecting dust.

Hugs, Fran
