Custom Birthday Card

I had a client ask for a custom birthday card for her sister who is the proud and involved grandmother of twin boys. The challenge was finding just the right image to use. Here’s the card I finally came up with.

She wanted the inside to represent her sister’s involvement with the baby boys, so here’s how it looks.

I based the card front loosely on this week’s sketch from OWH Stars & Stamps.

I am also entering this card in the weekly challenge (C4C137) from Crazy 4 Challenges, which is to make a birthday card.

Supplies used:

  • A7 white card blank from my stash
  • green patterned digital paper from Brianna Paper Pack by Designer Digitals
  • navy Gemstones Cardstock Paper by Recollections
  • self-stick crystal gems from my stash
  • baby clip-art found on the web
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles Large in two sizes
  • Cuttlebug

Thanks for having a look at my work. Happy crafting!

    So cute, Donna! I love the little “peas” in the pod. I’m sure your client will love it. Thanks for joining us in this week’s OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
