A Grungy Birthday Card

This is actually the 2nd version of this particular card....I made and photographed the first one, and when I went to edit the photos. I realized that in the process, the background paper had been flipped upside down prior to the elements being put on.  I probably could have gotten away with it, but the more I looked at it, the more obvious it became to me, so I salvaged what I could and remade the card.  And I think this version came out even better - so pffffffff to silly mistakes!

Materials Used:

  • Cream, brown, white, burgundy, and green card stock
  • Black & Cream Script paper from The Paper Studio
  • Distress Ink in Vintage Photo
  • Inkadinkado Clear Stamps in Sketchy Flourishes
  • Recollections Copper Mini Circle brads
  • 5 petal flower punch (not sure, but I think it's an EK Success punch)
  • The Paper Studio self adhesive pearls
  • 24 gauge floral wire
  • La Petites by The Paper Studio 3-D stickers
  • Random adhesives
