A Quicky Birthday Card

This was a quickie birthday card using scraps of paper, card embroidery silk and a button.

I stamped a large flower using a contrasting ink on a scrap of paper. I think this stamp was one from the Banana Frog ranges of clear stamps. Then carefully cut out the flower and stitched a co-ordinating button to the centre. Using the same ink pad, I inked around the four sides of the white birthday card. I cut a piece of green card stock to the exact size of the birthday card and tore the edges to give it a rough finish. Using the same embroidery thread I stitched a line of running stitches up the centre of the green card and mounted the flower using foam pads. Using the same coloured ink pad I stamped a sentiment from Sugar and Spice Happy Birthday Flower clear stamps on a piece of white card stock and cut it into a Tag. I inked the edges again using the same ink pad and tied it to the stem of the flower.
