I was recently asked to create a birthday card for a friend's mom. Daisies are her favorite flower, so I just had to use this pretty image from the Friendship Jar series by Papertrey Ink.
The flowers look so sweet in the mason jar! I stamped the daisies first and colored them with Copic markers. Then I stamped the jar over top and finished with the blue water. I cut out the entire image using both scissors and an exacto knife. That took some extra time, but I love the way it looks against the kraft card base. I stamped the kraft with a text background image using kraft ink and then sponged around the edges of the card. I added some patterned paper and blue scallop trim at the bottom, as well as along the inside of the card at the fold. It dressed it up quite nicely!
I used the jar label die along with a "celebrate today" sentiment on the jar, and then added a "happy birthday" sentiment inside the card. I really wanted to incorporate the number 70 somehow since it's her mom's 70th birthday, but nothing I had would work. Let's just say that I bumped several items higher up on my wish list while I was making this card! lol
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think the card captures the feeling of nostalgia just perfectly. Shoot, I would be thrilled to get this card! :) I may make another one or two to keep on hand.
