Today's card is a birthday card for my mother-in-law whose birthday is this coming Saturday. My husband gave me carte blanche, which delighted me because she and I have very similar tastes. This was a fun one for me.
I started with a kraft base and layered patterned paper with a red mat. The music is vintage from when I first learned to play the piano a zillion years ago (or so it seems), and I've distress inked the edges of all the papers.
The greeting is by Inspired by Inspired by Stamping and the shape was cut on my Silhouette Cameo as was the shadow mat.
The lace trim has been topped with some large flat back pearls I had in my stash.
The triple loop bow is lovely seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon and has been adorned with one of my little handmade charms for an added dose of cute.
A leafy flourish in one corner and some red stitching (red is her and my favorite color) and the front was finished.
The inside has contrasting card stock and some birthday-inspired stamping. I hope she enjoys it and has lots of cake. I might have some too to honor her.
Thank you for joining me, and here's wishing you a lovely week ahead!
