Today at Crafty Cardmakers we would like to see your take on the theme ‘Belated Birthday’, we are hosted by Kim and she said that she is notorious for being late with people’s birthday cards and so she wants to see what ideas we can come up with for belated birthdays, and they have to have a sentiment on them indicating that it’s a belated card we have created.
This couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I had missed a birthday when I had been unwell, and so a belated card was well in order.
I started with a shaped card which I ran through the HappyCut with an embossing folder, and then I coloured it with PanPastels in the citrus colour range. I also shaded the flowers with the same range, and made the scalloped mat, and the butterfly also with the PPs. The pearls were ivory and I coloured them with copics to tone in and popped them around the outside of the sentiment mat and onto the centres of some of the flowers on the background. The swirl is from Memory Box and is called Chesapeake and I split it in two and hid the split with the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The sentiment I created myself and printed onto plain white cardstock which I then coloured to match the background. I decided to be ‘loud and proud’ and admit I was late with this card and I made it the focal point of my card.
