Having a birthday during in lockdown in mot fabulous but having a special birthday ay the moment must be awful. So I really wanted to make this card for my cousin a little special.

Congratulations

So Amy from A Crafty Purple Frog has released her own stamp range, they feature British Wildlife and are fabulous. Every time I place an order (she is my go to for the greeting farm) she places a little freebie in the envelope too, so I thought it would be nice to send her a little congratulations card

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by cutting a circle out of purple card to create my rocker card base. A piece of white card was then cut into a semi circle

Using the stencil and all the distress oxides except the seedless preserve I inked the card

The small stamps from the set where stamped with the memento dew drops

Using the circle dies I cut a piece of alcohol friendly paper and using the seedless preserve and the stencil inked the bottom

The images were stamped and coloured with alcohol markers. The sentiments were stamped onto here


This was then adhered onto a piece of blue card which had been cut into a larger circle. There were adhered together and finished with clear drops and nuvo drops.

Thank you for reading

As pretty as this card is now it very nearly did not happen. I stamped the sentiment and smudged it not once but four times!! Then heat embossed mum and smudged that too. I was not having the best day.

This card is for my Grandma from my Mum and Dad. She will kill me if I tell you how old she is so lets just say the wrong side of 85
