Vintage birthday greeting on this birthday card
I embossed this very shimmery pink cardstock and sanded the dots to highlight them. I added a length of white vintage seam binding and glued this layer to the front of a white card. I laser printed and then trimmed the vintage image from Graphics Fairy and layered it onto a green rectangle. I trimmed the right edge with scallop scissors and pierced each scallop with a push pin to add interest and texture. There was just enough room between the image and the scallops to add a thin piece of white flat fiber. I adhered this element to the card front overlapping the seam binding. I tied a short piece of seam binding with a single knot to the right hand side of the one on the card front which nicely simulates a bow. I trimmed my greeting and flagged both ends, added a green layer and trimmed it to leave an even margin all the way around. I adhered the greeting to the card below the image using 3D foam tape.
My favorite colour combination - pink and green!! Love this card!
