Happy Birthday wishes to my dear friend Miriam!! I have know Miriam since I was little and she is one of the nicest and sweetest ladies I know. One thing that we both absolutely love is anything with a vintage style, all the pretty lacey, frilly and girly-girl stuff. One of Miriam's other friends had asked me if I could make a card for her to give to Miriam for her birthday and I knew exactly what to reach for when making this card! I'm sorry I can't show you just yet what I made for Miriam because she hasn't seen it yet but once she has I'll be sure to share it with all of you. So for today I am going to share with you the card that I made for her friend to give to her.
Here is Miriam's Birthday card.~I think the image of the vase with the roses is Absolutely Gorgeous!! Would you believe that's a sticker!? It's from one of the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Sticker sheet, Greetings & Sentiments. I added just a touch of Ranger, Diamond Stickles to the frame and the vase on the sticker. Behind the sticker I used a frame from the new Frameabilities die from Spellbinders. For the frame on this card I only wanted the shape so I used the Wizard and the Frameabilites die to cut the shape. One of the great things about the dies from Spellbinders is that they are so versatile! You can cut, emboss & stencil, it's your choice--you get to pick and chose what you want! You've gotta LOVE that!! For the butterfly I used one of the images from the Crafty Secrets Little Dolls Images & Journal Notes. I love these little booklets!! They are packed full of so many wonderful vintage images and they also have journal notes that you can use with your scrapbooking or on the insides of your cards or however you would like to use them with your papercrafting. I cut out the image and then added some Ranger, Diamond Stickles to the edges & body of the butterfly. Then I used the Crafty Secrets Altered Art stamp set for the butterfly wings on the top. I stamped the image in gold onto vellum and then embossed it. Then I colored in the backside using Copic markers, cut out the wings and used glue dots to adhere them to the other butterfly and slightly popped the wings up. For the background paper I used a flourish image from the Crafty Secrets Cherubs stamp set. I used gold pigment ink and then I used a sponge to gently rub the ink into the paper which gave it a softer look. Then I sponged the edges of the cardstock using Ranger Distress Ink, Vintage Photo. All of the CS is from WorldWin and I also added a pretty peach satin ribbon and some pearls.
Here is another view of the card .~Miriam, I hope you had a wonderful Birthday and I hope to see you soon! Hugs to you!!
