Happy Birthday to a Friend


I just love punches, don't you? I can't resist buying punches either. They are some of my favorite accessories for card-making. I made this card for a good friend's birthday coming up soon. There isn't any stamping on it. I used the computer for the sentiment and I used the 5 petal flower punch from Stampin' Up for the rest. After I punched the flower, I used my Scor-Pal to indent the middle of each petal. When you make the crease it makes the flower stand out and gives it dimension. Then I added a gem from Hobby Lobby to each flower. You may not be able to read the sentiment:
Front: Apart from it taking four painstaking hours to make this card by an incredibly skilled and talented craftsperson...
Inside: the only thing special about this card is the person holding it! Happy Birthday!
The first part I think is so funny but the last part is so true.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Until next time...

Happy inking,

Donna

It's a beautiful card and she's a very lucky lady to have you as a friend. I just love the sentiment!

Lovely card Donna. I haven't made a card without a stamped or digital image for a long time, I just have to get that punch. Don't have any flower punches (except tiny ones) and they make such pretty embelishments.
Big Hugs

Hi Donna, I'm writing here since it's easier than finding your e-mail address. I am quite busy this time of the year but I would like to help you with your invitations. I did't understand very well your question about the vellum.
PS: love your army of bunnies :)

That is very pretty! I sent you in the little baggie a type of glitter...kinda big. It works well stuck on with glue as snow or cake frosting, or even santa's beard. Glad you are having fun, Sally

I am also addicted to punches and I love what you have done with the SU flower punch (which I don't have but went on my Wish List) -- the sentiment is wonderful!!
