80th Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

Here is a card I have made for a friend's Mum who is having an 80th birthday in August, as they use to have Friesian cows on their farm, I've found a lovely photo of a black and white friesian and made it into an easel card, with lots of flowers and butterflies. 
A lovely sentiment by Susan Wheeler from her Holly Pond Hill collection completes the card.

The butterflies I left in the dies and added versa colour ink through the die to add extra colour.  The window shape I cut on my Silhouette Cameo then cut down the centre to open it, as usual for me lots of Star Dust stickles.

My friend was really pleased with the card, I hope her Mum will be too!

Materials used:

American Craft Card
Kaiser Craft design paper
Guipure lace

Spellbinders Floral Ovals Dies
Spellbinders Les Papillions Two large Butterfly

Until next time, happy crafting..
