Just to Say | Birthday Card
It's a brand new year already and I like to take this opportunity to re-stock my card supply for those times when events like birthdays come up before you realize. This is a simple and sweet birthday card, but the design could just as easily be adapted to any other occasion with a quick change out of the sentiment sticker.
I like to use lots of texture in my projects, and while I love to create that with wet mixed media supplies, it can also be created easily with some supplies that you may already have, or perhaps you just prefer a not so messy option.
I began with a Francheville card base and added a piece of leftover patterned paper from the iwood collection. I took a pearl flourish and cut it into two pieces so that I could arrange it under the two sides of a torn piece of corrugated board. This also created an interested contrast between the wood texture in the paper, and the elegance of the pearls.

The flowers come quite flat in the packet, so I like to give them a good scrunch to bring them to life. I teamed this will some soft gauze, and then added a piece of wood veneer to create another contrasting texture. A simple tag and sentiment sticker was the finishing touch.
