Of course I made my Mum's birthday card, here it is:
The photo is of my mum when she was 19. My dad carried it around for years, so it was quite creased and a bit dog eared - nothing a bit of Photoshopping couldn't fix!! I used Kaisercraft Devonshire Tea 6" pad for the background, with the bird, flowers and butterflies cut from a piece of Christine Rea paper. The cream mat is heavily embossed pearl paper. I added lace, flowers and fern leaf, gold brads and trim and finally the gold filigree butterfly with a diamante strip for a body. The "80" is a rub-on. The envelope has the more of the Christine Rea paper on it, I made the envelope a bit 3D to fit the flowers in, but I could have made it a bit MORE 3D!
The inside of this card was obviously personalised for my mum, but the principle is easily applied to all cards, it is lovely to get a card that you know is just for YOU.
