Happy Birthday Gift Card-Craft O’Clock – “Lovely When You Smile”

Happy Birthday Gift Card-Craft O’Clock – “Lovely When You Smile”

Good Morning. Just stopping by to share a card I created for Craft O’Clock for their guest design team. For this 6×6 square card, I used the beautifully vintage “Lovely When You Smile” collection of 6×6 papers and their Junk Journal packet. The papers feature gorgeous vintage greens and bright blue and the journal packets have cut apart folders and pockets as well as tags and papers to make your journal a breeze to create. It is also one of the only design paper companies that create large laminated “covers” to cover a mini album or journal.

The cover features one of my favorite La La Land Heart Doily Die embellished with a string of pearls and vintage lace along the side of the card. The sentiment was stamped on vellum with Altenew Jet Black Mixed Media Ink pad. Last, I added some Magic Midnight Beautiful Bead pearls from Reneabouquet in and around the flower spray.

Inside this card is a handmade gift card envelope using the design papers and my Scan n Cut. I cut out the side pocket from the Junk Journal papers and the gift card envelope fit perfectly. As a unique addition, once again I have included inside the gift card envelope a packet that contains a SEED PAPER BUTTERFLY – butterfly shaped EARTH PAPER – a handmade paper that contains WILD FLOWER SEEDS. Your recipient can plant the seeded paper (directions included on little tag) in a little planter and in a few weeks will be able to have beautiful wild flowers that can be transplanted to the ground.

Last, I added a die cut blank oval for a personal message to the recipient. I also covered the back of the card with coordinating design paper. Thank you so much for stopping by and, as always, for leaving a kind comment. Have a great day.
