Here are two birthday cards I've made - but I've still managed to get a clay face in on one of them - lol.
The first is for an aunt's 80th. The background is some simple rubber stamping onto some pink pastel. The heart is a card covered with some brusho coloured tissue paper. The image has been stuck on with gel medium and the heart further embellished with some lace, paper flowers and hand stitching.
The second is for my sister's birthday. The base of the card is covered with two different scrapbook papers which I distressed a bit with some gesso and watered down ink. The doll's dress is made from wired ribbon so it gives a nice full skirt. The hair is Chenille yarn and she even has a gold necklace on (alas, not real gold!) The card itself is a piece of A4 folded over, so it is 12" high - so I think I'll be wrapping it up rather than trying to make an envelope for it.
