I've not crafted in a while. I'm sick and it's quite persistent. I miss posting cards and other crafts here. Luckily I still have a card to show!
I made this card about 2 weeks ago for a family friend. She always sends all of us cards for everything, has done so ever since I met her and she found out my birthday. For every occasion she would send us cards. Birthdays, holidays, pregnancies, just because etc... For the longest time I didn't know her birthday. And too often I'm that kind of person who's too awkward to ask for this kind of information 😂 Then I finally thought I had her birthday in my calendar, and it turned out I had 2 birthdays for her listed within the same month. Aaahhhh! I managed to find out the correct birthday by asking my mother in law (phew). This card has hopefully reached the recipient by now. Her birthday was a few days ago. And if I hasn't, it's still okay to share I think. Because she's not really on internet and social media anyway. I had to explain streaming to her last year, that was adorable haha!
The bear and birthday cake:
- Lawn Fawn's Party Animal
- Lawn Fawn's Penelope's Blossoms
The sentiment 'Fijne Verjaardag' ( = Happy Birthday):
- Lawn Fawn's Riley's ABCs
The scalloped circle was cut using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames.
They were coloured using Distress Oxides (Picked Raspberry, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany). I also blended a little pattern on the circle behind the bear using a stencil from Action.
I stamped the bear and cake using Tsukineko Memento Toffee Crunch. Then coloured the images in a somewhat no-line-colouring style using my Copic markers. The white details were done with a Pentel white gel pen.
The background is a simple textured pink paper and the base of the card was done using 300 gsm white cardstock.
The reason for this unusual combination of bears and roses is because I was informed several times that she loves bears. And I know from talking with her that she loves roses too. I did not know what to do with the colours, but I think this suits her! I hope she likes the card. ❤️
