Birthday card for Josephine.
So it is too late to post the original, but I thought I would dedicate this card to her - and hope that she has a wonderful day!
The card is a 6x6 portrait white base, which was distressed around the edges with vintage photo distress ink. I used some copper tone paper which was punched along one edge with a Martha Stewart punch and a piece of scrap from my box to form the background.
The topper was a crafty individuals stamp, stamped using the vintage photo distress ink and coloured with distress inks - vintage photo, victorian velvet and a combo of bundled sage and pine needles. I used a stardust pen to colour the bee wings. I mounted the topper onto pink mulberry paper, which was wetted and torn to get a frayed edge.
The flowers were all made from scrap paper and punches, and were made into a bouquet with the addition of some punched leaves and a white chiffon ribbon tinted with the vintage photo distress ink tied into a bow. All were glued into place with pinflair glue.
Finally, I stamped a greeting top and bottom on the patterned paper.
