Simple yet Pretty Birthday Card
During September and October there are alot of birthdays in my family. I find that there is nothing better than a homemade gift or card, even if it is simple. For this project I made a simple card.
Items used in this project:
Terri Sproul Mixers in Gold and Garnet Shimmer
Black Gel Pen
Brown Craft Paper
Using Arnold Grummer's Daisy Casting Mold and brown craft paper I made a cast of a daisy. To give it a weathered look I then dry brushed it with Gesso.
While that dried I added some words around the window on the card with a black gel pen.
Using a pencil I traced the window onto the inside of the front cover. I did this to help me line up my cast with the window.
Then I added a bit of white glue to the box to secure my cast.
I added the cast to the inside cover of the card and painted it with Terri Sproul Mixers in Gold and Garnet Shimmer and some gloss medium. After that I coated the inside cover with my glue stick making sure I got the edges.
I then closed the inside covered and went over it with a brayer to make sure everything stuck together. The cast sticks out nicely through the window.
Here you have a nice, simple, pretty Birthday Card that would be perfect for everyone on your list.
