Happy Birthday Maya!

By | September 19, 2014

Happy Birthday to my wonderful niece Maya – Uncle Dan and I hope you have a great day!  Maya loves to craft and I always make sure to include a craft item in her birthday package.  She received her card early and loved it, hope you do as well!   Here is a picture of Maya from the first day of school this September.

Here is the card I sent Maya for her birthday, her favorite colors are blue and purple and thought this was the perfect card.  For some reason I am hooked on ‘wreath on door’ cards and this design popped into my head.  Let me first start my telling you how I made the wreath, the secret is a “wreath frame” – two circle framelits die cut together to form a frame – once you have this its easy to make sure your finished project will look more like a wreath, the first coupleI tried  looked more  like eggs until I tried this.  At the bottom is a post of what the frame looks like before all the flowers are added.  Keep in mind, any shape will work – think I might try a square next.  The card base and mat are Sahara Sand, and the mat is stamped in Sahara Sand with Hardwood stamp.  Also stamped a matching banner for added depth.  There is a tea lace paper doily between the layer with Stampin dimensionals under the banner.   The flowers on the wreath are stamped/punched from the Petite Petals Stamp set in Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point and Pool Party – Pearls complete the look.  The banner is Elegant Eggplant on Pool Party.
