Mojo Monday..........18th Birthday Card.



Hello, did everyone have a good weekend? Are you all sitting down, today, I have spent the day making cards!!!!!! Yes, I know, you haven't seen a card on my blog since August, it is the first time in three months I've actually felt inspired to papercraft,


I went over to Mojo Monday for a sketch and hopefully to get my mojo back.It's my niece's 18th birthday on Wednesday and my sister asked if I could make a special card for her, how could I refuse.


When I saw the sketch, and saw the centre circle, my first thought was a rosette, like the age badges you can buy from card shops.
I die cut some circles and a Tim Holtz rosette and layered them up adding lots of die cut banners and ribbons. She loves photography so I added a little wooden camera and stamped "Smile" It's Your Day.


I made a pocket for the inside of the card by stitching a smaller piece of matching paper to the base paper and printed out some photo booth style photo's.


I printed a verse............


and made a matching box to put the card in.


I then went on to make another card for me to send, this one is very simple using a readymade frame, a doily, pearl swirls and some felt flowers.




Thanks for stopping by, have a good week.
