My brother’s birthday was back in the middle of March and I texted him that day to wish him a happy birthday. Yesterday we were at my Mom’s for Easter dinner and, since I haven’t seen him in a while, I finally had the chance to give him his card. I am really happy with the way it turned out and he loved it, too.
I went pretty basic with the paper and used solid cardstock for most of it. It’s hard to tell here but the base layer is brown, the middle layer is green and the top layer is yellow, all cardstock from Michael’s.
The sentiment was created by me and will be the featured Friday Freebie this week so you can grab it, too. I cut the label out with my Silhouette Cameo and sponged around the edges with my Tim Holtz sponger and some Tim Holtz China Blue ink.
I cut a portion of paper from the Michael’s Recollections “Stitch In Time” paper pad for the scalloped border at the bottom.
This cute little bee is a digital stamp by Trina Clark and was purchased from http://digiwebstudio.com/. It was the perfect image for my card.
I added some colored buttons along the edge of the scalloped border to finish off the front of the card.
Another view of the card…
Come back tomorrow for a look at my Clear It Out Challenge card for this week.
