Birthday Notecard Set


Hi Friends. Thought I'd share a project I've been working on.
My daughter asked for one of my 'extra' birthday cards for a friend, and
I decided to make her a few. That turned into a boxed set of 6! 

These are strange and stressful times right now. Feeling helpless I turn to prayer.
And crafting... it helps focus energy towards something besides anger and sadness.

This was not a quick set. Planning started with The Greetery's Notecard Dies, and
because they were smaller than the A2 Notecard box, I cut down the box by 
adjusting the sizes of the dies to fit the notecard. 

Positioning the dies in your machine will get you the desired size. And it takes a bit of
math and measurement. If you'd like my size notes I'd be glad to share them with you.
Pictured above is the notecard box plus the handmade envelope made for the card.

6 cards, 2 of each color, and 6 envelopes, completes the set. They fit nice and snug inside
the little box.

The paper is Peony from PTI, stripe and it's coordinating solid cardstock.
And the macaroons are The Greetery's new Sweet Tooth. Sweet die also from
The Greetery, and cut twice.

The sweet pastel colors just seemed right with the macaroons, and I added a bit 
of 'sugar' to the tops of each cookie, and one heart from Betsy's cookie confetti.

The green heart is copic colored, on a white heart.

Completed project, something I hope my daughter will like. As I said, not the 
quickest to do but satisfying to have completed! 

Blessings, my friends.
