Handmade Card–Girl’s first birthday card

2010 09 04_Elyse 1st birthday_0005This is one of my all time favourite cards I’ve made.

If you want to follow along here's a link to some equivalent products. As I make cards from my stash, quite a lot of items are discontinued.

Make the Base Card

  1. Freehand draw or print out a large number 1 and trace around it onto a patterned paper you love. Ink the edges.
  2. Cut a strip of patterned paper with pinking shears

2010 09 04_Elyse 1st birthday_0004Make the Rosette

  1. Create the rosette by cutting a 5cm wide strip of pink cardstock, about 20cm long. Ink the edges
  2. Fold the cardstock backwards and forwards ever 5mm. Glue the ends together.
  3. Cut a 3cm circle, stamp with an initial.
  4. Cover with embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat with a heat gun until smooth.
  5. Ink the edges.
  6. Glue over the centre of the rosette.

Glue the rosette onto the number 1 on the front of my card.

There you have it a gorgeous card!
