Rather than automatically make a new card every time someone’s birthday comes around, I’ve been trying to use up some of my card stash, but there are exceptions. The birthday of my other half’s twin nieces is one such occasion.
I’ve been seeing a few mentions of bridge cards recently and decided that a pair of those might make a nice change — I don’t often make differently shaped cards.
Of course, all the tutorials I found were for making US-sized cards; I had to work out suitable dimensions to make sure that the finished card would fold flat and fit in a standard C6 envelope.
I might not have raided my card stash, but I did have a hunt through the pile of images that I have coloured in the various colouring challenges and found these roses. I originally coloured them with the intention of doing one for each of the Copic monthly colours, but that didn’t last long…
I kept the decoration on the rest of the card clean and sparkly. Die-cut glitter card in the recess behind the rose, some narrow border die-cuts with glittery drops for edging, and glitter border strip for the edges the rose is stuck to.
