Another birthday card for someone at work.  This time I tried a layout I saw in a magazine, it is simple but effective I think.

Flower fairy birthday card

Fold craft cardstock, ink the edges.  Trim a piece of ‘La Spa’ paper from Prima Marketing’s Fairy Belle collection, and then distress and ink the edges in a lighter (contrasting) colour.  Attach to the base card.

Place a strip of gold paper across the card, near the bottom with edges inked in the darker colour.  Add a die-cut shape (Spellbinder’s Labels 17 set) on top of the gold paper, with the edges inked in the lighter colour.  Attach a folded piece of ribbon and add a ribbon on top.  Place a pink pearl in the centre of the flower.

I wanted to decorate the envelope to match but make it simple.  I edge one side in aged mahogony ink, placed a strip of gold paper in one corner, and then added a flower that matched the one on the card.
