Happy Birthday Mum


This is the birthday card that I made for my mum. It didn't quite go to plan as the embossing folders I ordered were out of stock, so I had to improvise. I used a Fiskas plate instead. Don't know if you can see it that clearly but there is a border of swirls around the edge of the flowers down to the embossed crease line at the bottom. I used a piece of embossing that I'd created earlier and the Happy Birthday is stuck on to disguise the Fiskas name which I accidently embossed onto the card from the plate!!!! I made the bow and stuck it on too, as that hides one of the dots also embossed from the plate by mistake!!!!

An excellent bit of improvisation there and well disguised bits you didn't want - no-one would know if you hadn't said.

Your Mum will be chuffed with it.
