Papa’s Birthday Card

Its time for another family celebration – my Papa’s Birthday is right around the corner. So here’s the card for the beloved man –

Papa's Birthday Card (2014)

This card is from a sudden inspiration I got as soon as I woke up in the morning (and I had to try real hard not to get the image out of my mind! ;))

I made the background by first adding an stamped image and adding clear embossing on it, then applied some distress ink on top and sprayed the card stock copiously with water + perfect pearls (you can see the shine in the below image! :D). I set it aside to dry.

After this I cut three pieces of pattern paper and die cut the butterfly pieces out of it – I used the bigger butterfly piece to die cut the smaller butterfly!

Once the background piece was dry, I ironed it off to remove the embossing and adhered the pattern paper stripes, aligning them to form a crisscross pattern and also added the handwritten sentiment piece with the other two pieces. I finally adhered the jute string and adhered the bow to the pattern paper below. Once this was dry, I adhered the whole piece on the card base.

I also made a matching envelope!

Hope you liked looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks for looking!
