A Belated Birthday Card
I usually try to be on time with birthday cards. My grandmother (Loretta) used to say the card should arrive ON THE DAY (the emphasis is hers) and that was that. However, there are times when I have been a tad late with a birthday card and it is nice to put extra care into making a card which might make the recipient feel a little better about the birthday wishes sent even though they are tardy.
This is the card I made today on my YouTube channel (47cmc). I started out trying to spray a lattice pattern on a background paper using a mask, but gave up after creating a huge mess. Instead of a masked background, I opted for patterned paper. Much easier!
The following supplies and materials were used on this card:
- Papertrey Ink Royal Velvet card stock for the card base
- Moments patterned paper by My Mind's Eye (all patterned papers used on the card are from this paper pad)
- Happy Belated Birthday sentiment from the Birthday Bash stamp set by Papertrey Ink
- Momento Elderberry ink
- K&Company Susan Winget Botanical Flower Layered Accents (flowers)
