Penny Black Birthday card


Here I have made a very quick and easy card ( if you do not count stamping and painting the image) . I measured a piece of card using a long standard envelope as a guide and added an extra 3" - 4" to fold to make the left front flap. You can adjust this measurement to suit yourself depending on the size of image you are using. I covered my card on the inside and the flap with some pretty paper. I added my ribbon and my previously stamped and painted image. I made a mistake when I was painting the grass but managed to cover it over using some fibre paper. I cut two slivers of Purple card with my guillotine and threaded and knotted them carefully through my two buttons. I glued White flowers together and put my buttons in the centre of each one. I added one to the bottom of the card and the other onto the top of the flap.
