A Day Just for You!

Here is a birthday card I made for a friend at work. The card is 5" X 7"  white card stock base. I added a black mat cut at 4 3/4" X 6 3/4". My patterned papers are from an American Crafts Pebbles Garden Party 6" X 6" paper pad. I cut the paper with the squares at 4 1/2" X 5 1/2"   I then cut a coordinating pattern from the paper pad at 4 1/2" X 1 1/2" and then used a Martha Steward border punch for the lower edge. To cover the seam I used some bakers twine that I wrapped around 3 time and then tied into a bow.

The two seed packet covers are also from the same paper pad. I cut two of them out and matted each one with black card stock. The Daisy piece is added to the card with one layer of foam tape. The Forget Me Nots are attached with two layers of foam tap.  I stamped my sentiment with Teal Zeal Memento ink.
