Birthday Card for John

Here is this year's birthday card for my future Father-in-law. I used CTMH Basic Textured CS in chocolate for the base of the tri-fold album. Twitterpated and Heartfelt Wonder diecuts adorn the base. I used Twitterpated, Thickers and dollar store stickers for the words on the front cover. I random stamped sayings over the B&T paper before attaching the stickers. The closure wired hounds tooth ribbon and the fibre are both from my local sewing store. The knotted ribbon is CTMH. I printed the saying on Colonial White CS using a computer font called "Curlz". I added some detail to the felt pieces with embroidery floss - makes them less "flat" looking and used a tiny black brad for the squirrel eye. I also inked the edges of the pieces. The acorns at the bottom of the tree are cut out from B&T and adhered to clear craft buttons using liquid glass. Have I told you how much I love that stuff!?!


  1. Fantastic card!!! He's going to love it! So much attention to the details.....beautiful!

  2. I Love the card its very beautiful!

  3. That's a great card! You have to show me how to make one like that. The last one I tried looked ridiculous.

    Shandel - your cards always look awesome. Come out on the weekend and we can make one. They are very simple to do.
