Commissioned 30th birthday card
I was asked to make a 30th birthday card for a daughter - not girly or with flowers, but to include some musical notes and butterflies with the wording given, which I generated on computer and printed on to card that has Happy Birthday repeatedly printed - very feint, so quite hard to see here.
I used an 8 x 8 embossalicious embossing folder with my eBosser, using some pearlescent card that was a lilac colour, brushing this with dusty concord and chipped sapphire distress inks. The 3D acetate butterflies are some that came in a pack with a recently bought magazine.
I hope I've hit the right note with this card (no pun intended) - I know it is simple, but I couldn't make it fussy and girly and also it needs to be posted abroad so the request was to keep thickness and weight to a minimum.
The torn piece of acetate had been prepared on the computer and printed and run through my xyron so that no glue showed through.
