I can't believe it, but I'm ahead of the game! This is a birthday card for my sister, whose birthday is in December! Of course, I may make others I like more between now and then, but I'm pretty happy with this one.
Butterfly Basics is a beautiful, feminine set, and lends itself well to more vintage birthday cards and those with a more shabby chic look.
This stamp set is retired, but you can find a gently used one on my Retired Rubber Stamps page.
Honestly, I was going to use the Brick Wall embossing folder for the background, but I couldn't find where I put it! LOL! So instead I pulled the wooden plank patterned paper from the Farmers Market Designer Paper collection. I stamped the leaves directly on it in Tip Top Taupe, and stamped everything else on Whisper White and either fussy cut it out or used a coordinating punch or framelit. The greeting came from Stake Your Claim. I added some delicate Mint Macaron Dotteed Lace Trim and a few Pearl Jewels for a little extra charm.
This handmade birthday card began with this week's sketch at i Love Card Sketches. Try it for yourself!
