Butterfly Friends Birthday Card

Hello there

Just a quick post with a card I made at the weekend for a friends birthday. I made it very late on Saturday evening / Sunday morning so lets not look too closely at the obvious mistakes! lol (If your a crafter and a Virgo like me run away now!). I was tired, decorated the box lid before I glued the base sides together and realised the base was too big for the lid! And when I re made a smaller base the card wouldn't fit into it! Arrrrggghhh.

My friend loved it, so it was all good. Happy birthday Jeannette xx

The paper is by KaiserCraft and it's from their Timeless Collection, I only bought one sheet but will be going back for more. Loved it and it's double sided, so if you wanted to use the other side it has images of postcards on it, fab. I think it is different from what I usually do, I mean just look at all that white space around the sentiment! How I managed to resist swiping the distress inks all over it is beyond me. I was good and only gave the very edge of the circle a light coating, and the very edges of the gorgeous papers.


I also decororated the inside to match the front, but the sentiment inside says Happy Birthday. I have seen other people decorate the inside of the cards and loved how it turned out so I am sure I will be doing this again. And as I was on a roll, and getting carried away with myslef I made a box for the card. . . . .

. . . . .and decorated the lid to match the card!!! Well, 1.30 a.m in the morning is no excuse not to try!

Thank you for coming over for a peep.
