Happy Birthday! Webster's Pages Garden Gala
FIXING A PROBLEM: You can see above where my stitching is not quite as nice as I would like. I had to think fast so I decided to make fancy photo corners using my EK Success punch pictured below.
I used a foam circle to adhere my photo corners. I love the dimension it gives.
Tah-Dah! All better now.
I used rhinestones from Kaiser to add a beautiful sparkle to my photo corners.
You can't see my messy sewing now that I have made a beautiful disguise. Repeat this for all four corners.
Next I used a pretty teal ink to stamp my sentiment.
I cut the sentiment and distressed the edges.
I inked the edges by running the frayed edges across my ink pad. Be sure to brush your edges before running through your ink. This eliminates tiny bits of paper from nesting in your ink.
I adhered the sentiment to a solid piece of cardstock.
Here is a close up of the fussy cut "birds in saucer" as I like to call them. lol.
Adhere birds to the top half of the card.
I used Zip Dry to adhere the lace across the middle of the page.
Next I used Prima flowers (Athena Flowers, Skylight) and glued them to the lace.
I used foam squares to adhere my sentiment. I tucked it under the large flower in the center.
For the icing on the cake, I added a blue rhinestone to the party hat of my bird.
Thanks for joining me today. Now I have to go help my hubby with his Cricut Cake machine.
