I've made a very clean, simple and pretty birthday card for my mother-in-law. I can share it safely now, as her birthday was last Saturday 1st July and she has already seen the card. I stamped the tulips and leaves on some scrap white card, coloured them with Copic markers and then cut them out. I added sparkle to the flowers with a clear Wink of Stella brush - you can just about see the sparkle above. I used dimensional gel to adhere the flowers to the card. I die cut the word "hugs" three times - twice in yellow card and once in green, glued them together with the green slightly offset to give a shadow effect. I added clear Wink of Stella to the word. I finished the front by stamping "and kisses". On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a large birthday greeting along with an outline tulip in yellow.

Oh I love how you finished the inside of the card. (Don't get me wrong, I love the outside too, but the inside of the card looks so special). Amazing work this week.
