My mom’s birthday is on Halloween and she has always expressed that she likes to receive regular birthday cards which I can understand since my own birthday is near Christmas. So I made her a vintage looking card using DCWV’s Linen Closet glitter card stock. It looks appropriate for Autumn without using oranges, etc. I hope she likes it.
The card is A2 sized from Wild Card. I used Design Studio (DS) to size it appropriately and have it cut in the direction I wanted it to fold. I also used DS to weld a frame to the edges of the card and this gave me a scalloped edge. The welded frame also allowed a window to cut out for the sentiment to peer through on the side I wanted. For the other end, I just hid the contour lines so the window wouldn’t cut. Hope this makes sense. The scalloped frame is from Wild Card’s baby carriage card. I cut two separate frames in coordinating Linen Closet paper to line the front and inside window cut-outs. I made the flowers from the Bloom cartridge using cuts at 1 inch, 1.5 inches, and 2 inches. I hole punched each center and used a large brad for the centers of the flowers. I then added some sparkle to the brads using Star Dust Stickles. The flowers are popped up using foam tape. I added layers of Linen Closet glitter card stock to the inside of the card as well, with a tan card stock area for a personal message.
