This is my first handmade card for the year 2011. Yay! Several of my lovedones are celebrating their birthday this January starting off with my sis-in-law.
I love this floral scalloped background paper! I have used it in one of my Christmas cards and decided to use it this time again and with brown matting. When I was cleaning my tiny craft space, I saw an Inkadinkado stamp set that I haven't used: 97635 Round frames. I stamped the scalloped frame with bundled sage distress and memento rich cocoa dye inks. The sentiment was stamped in colorbox' scarlet ink. I handcut it and secured it with dimensional adhesive.
To add dimension, I placed a red button, tied it with twine and secured it in place.
It's simple but handcrafted with a lot of love. Happy birthday, Manang!
