It's challenge week 25 at Polka Doodles and this weeks theme is Summer Birthday's. Lots of pretty flowers, sun, sea and sand, vacations such a diverse selection for that Birthday this week.
It's my Mother-in-laws birthday in July and she lives in the UK, so I have made a postage friendly card for my bit of inspiration this week.
My papers, and the heart frame for this card, are from the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD - this amazing CD is so versatile, including In the Garden, All Sewn Up and Welcome Home. With over 300 unique elements. Remember that Polka Doodles has worldwide free shipping, on all orders over £10 (around $16).
I took a sentiment from the Cherryblossom Lane CD and merged it with the heart shaped frame. I then used the cut and print feature on my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out. I rotated the top heart slightly and placed it on foam tape to add some depth.
A little bit of ribbon around that centre panel, with a pretty double bow to finish off. I love these papers, that burlap paper almost looks real.
For the inside I used the same papers. The rose stamp is from a See D's stamp set called Springtime Swirls. I inked all the edges of all the layers in CTMH Barn Red ink, as well as for the rose stamp.
I seem to be in the mood for roses lately :-)
