Happy Birthday Mum Booklet Card

Well, it's July 13th and today we celebrate both my daughter's 6th and my Mum's (something!) birthday, so a busy day all round! It seems like only yesterday Mum was urging me to 'Hurry Up!"
as her birthday was nearly over and baby still had to make its entrance - luckily, I was able to
 give her the best birthday present ever, a healthy Granddaughter, the delightfully lovely
(sometimes tricky!) Evie Mae.

Here's the booklet card I made for Mum, designed to contain her gift vouchers. I created it using a mix of  Floral and Paisley papers I designed for the docrafts Creativity Club along with a mix of
Papermania Vintage Notes and Capsule Pastels collections.

The heart is the gorgeous Papermania Vintage Notes Filigree Heart die.
The 3D flowers on the front were made by rolling and scrunching a length
of burgundy paper, then securing the base before attaching to the
card with silicone glue.

I made the letter templates by printing them out from my pc then cutting
the shapes from the Floral rose papers. I love the dimensional look so I have used
loads of 3D sticky pads and layers to create depth.

The vintage effect was made by swiping a dark pink
dye pad over all the card edges. 

On the last page of the booklet, I created a mini open envelope
to house  the vouchers.

Thanks for taking the time to look!
