I said I'd be back today with another August birthday card. This one's for my Moms 60th birthday which is today! So Happy Birthday Mom !
I decided to make her a card that didn't say 60 on it as I know that is what she would prefer!
The card is A5 and I used my latest download collection Hearts and Flowers for the papers. I printed the base card with one paper design and folded the card myself so that the design was all over the back of the card as well. For the sentiment I used my fav doodlebug all mixed up rub ons and once I'd added the letters to the square of card and inked around the edge for some definition I ran it through a sizzix embossing folder but had the dots going in rather than sticking out to stop the rubons being pushed off!! The flowers are both by prima and I just added a button as a centre to the large flower with white craft wire to finish it off.
It was really nice, as we live so far away from my parents, my Dad,my Aunt and Uncle had been arranging a surprise get together last Saturday without my Mom knowing. So Ian and I had to rush down to the Midlands on Saturday and be at my Aunts house by 6.30pm along with all my Moms other friends hidden in the kitchen so that she could arrive with my Dad just to have, what she thought was, a meal with my Aunt and Uncle. She was so surprised to see us all ! It was great. The hardest thing was not giving myself away for the last few weeks on the telephone and not mentioning anything here as she visits this blog regularly. I'm glad she had such a lovely time, she deserved it.
