This is another family birthday card, this time for my mum. Myself, my dad, brother and mum all have birthdays in September, so it was always a busy (and expensive) month in our house when I was growing up. Actually, it's still an expensive month! Thankfully my boys' birthdays are a bit more spread out (although the months coincide with two of my nephews).
This was my first ever attempt at an easel card. The image is a digi stamp by Julia Spiri, and I coloured it using Polychromos pencils.
I also used a variety of die cut flowers and butterflies on this. The flower dies are clever. They cut in strips and then they can be rolled up and the petals spread out. I got these a while ago and unfortunately can't remember what brand they are. I am going to have to start keeping bits of packaging!
The printed papers are by First Edition, and I also made a matching box since there was no way this one was going to fit into an envelope. It's made from a 7 inch pizza style box which my 6 inch card with embellishments fits into nicely on a bed of pink tissue paper.
