This very simple card was created by my ten year old grandaughter Nikita, for her great-grandmother’s 81st Birthday.
Here’s how she made it:
She took a hot pink card, and stamped “Happy Birthday” in Stazon Ink Pad in Black Cherry on the right hand side near the bottom of the card. She then added a contrasting pink strip to go down the card. She put that through the Cuttlebug using the tiny hearts folder, then glued it to the left of the card leaving a small gap at the side. (See image)
Then she took some satin flowers I’d purchased from Kaisercraft for $1. They were on a clearance sale so we grabbed them. (Actually, I grabbed four packets!) FYI, these were called “Belle Collection Embellishment Pack”.
There were five flowers in the pack, along with three different Christmas ribbons, so it was an absolute bargain.
Each flower had material leaves on the back, but Nikita decided to take them off as they ‘looked ugly’. And I have to agree that removing them was a smart move.
Using glue dots, she attached each flower to the card at equal intervals, then added a pearl brad to the centre of each flower.
That’s it. How simple is that?
**Nana Wright loved the card, which was not surprising!
