Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a good start! The weather was beautiful here and my sweetie and I were able to play golf yesterday. We both played well, which makes it even more fun. :)
The card I have to share today is a birthday card I made for a friend of mine. Her husband likes skulls, crossbones, etc and I think some of that has rubbed off on her. She has a pirate flag up in her cube at work with a skull and crossbones on it and from time to time I see her with accessories along that line. So I decided to go along with that theme for her birthday card. I made a standard A2 size card going horizontally, but I put the crease along the left side so it would open like a book. I wanted to put a gift card inside and I thought it would look better this way. To hold the gift card in place, I cut a strip of paper that matched my card base at 1.5 x 4.25 inches. Then I used a Fiskars border punch for the strip of flowers. I adhered the flower strip to the 1.5 x 4.25 piece of paper, put adhesive along the sides and bottom of that strip and adhered it to the inside of my card to make a pocket for the gift card to sit in.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Hope you have a wonderful week!
