Happy Birthday Card

Hello & Welcome!

Thank you for joining me. I have created a Happy Birthday Card using pattern paper, paint, ink, Crazing, flowers and my favourite Chipboard products from Southern Ridge Trading Company!

I started my card off by cutting my paper to my desired sizes. I decided to create a card that would fit into a #10 envelope. I then layered pieces together, used a paper distressing tool to the edges and added stitching using my sewing machine. I took the two smallest pieces and gave them both torn edges.

I used a light Distress Paint dauber to add paint to both the Chipboard Film Strip Frame and the Birthday Greeting. Once dry, I added a layer of Crazing on top of both using a paint brush.

As you can see in the picture above & below: the coat of Paint, Crazing and brown ink rubbed into the ridges gives the Film Strip Frame and Greeting an Old & Vintage look.

I added flat back pearls and an assortment of flowers to my card front for a finishing touch!
