I started with this:
When I saw those awesome 3D Roll-Up Flowers I knew exactly what I was going to do! I started with 4 strips of paper (one with a punched border), layered them on top of each other and machine sewed them together:
Then I created the centerpiece, using a hand cut journaling spot (New Story) as my base and attaching 3D Roll-Up Flowers, some die-cut flowers, banner pieces, a sentiment and a bird cage sticker:
I attached this to the strip of paper and finished it off with more flower and bird stickers from the Cardstock Sticker sheet:
And this is the result:
But there’s more! I have also created 2 cards for you: a birthday card and a card for a good friend.
I don’t know about you, but I for one, almost always forget to send people birthday cards. I think it’s because I don’t want to buy them, but make them myself and then I forget about it until it’s too late. So what did I do today? I created a birthday card in advance AND a card for a good friend whose birthday card I forgot.
First the birthday card:
And my other card:
All these projects are created with the “Lovely Day” collection. Don’t you just love this collection?!!
