Josephine is hosting today’s challenge, Birthdays
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme.
My card was made using scrap card and paper from my stash. Cards don’t have to be big – this one was made just using an 8 inch square piece of olive green cardstock and another 5 inch square piece of the same colour.
To make my card, I folded the piece in half (so it ended up 8 inchs x 4 inches). Onto the front of the card, I matted a piece of plain pink card from my scrap box, and onto that I layered some of a sheet of floral paper from an 8 x 8 pad.
From the centre of the 5 inch scrap of card, I die cut a circle, and from the centre of that circle, the sentiment and the 2 leaves.
I cut two mats in the plain pink for the circle, and stuck one on the front and one on the back of the green to hide where the other cuts had been made, and stuck that onto the right hand side of my landscape card so it stood up above the fold edge.
I cut another slightly smaller circle of the patterned paper from the remains of the 8 x 8 sheet and matted this onto the green/pink circle, and stuck the sentiment in the centre of it.
From the remaining patterned paper, I cut three spiral rose shapes, and rolled and stuck them together to make my flowers. I put the leaves in the bottom left hand corner of the circle, and stuck the flowers over the top. I put some glue in the cente of the flowers, and covered with glitter to make a sparkly centre.
I had a small wooden butterfly in my stash too – and this was the perfect opportunity to use it, after gluing and glittering it.
Finally, I took a small piece of pink string and stuck it on the right hand side of the circle.
Happy with this one…. Good luck with the challenge – I look forward to seeing eveyone’s cards!
