One of my favorite things to do is make cards out of really cool papers. I sometimes use my own photography, a copy of a vintage photo or create a collage effect from magazines or objects. For this little gem, I've been working with some nice colored card stock, metallic ink, vellum and old buttons. The photo for this card was featured with some poetry of mine in an earlier blog entry. Final product is 3.5" x 5.5".  Other supplies included 3M poster tape (I swear by it - forget using a glue stick), pinking shears, thread to match card stock and of course silk ribbon to wrap around the clear vellum envelope. (this is getting enclosed with a gift). I didn't like the way I wrote my first "happy birthday", so I re-did the vellum overlay. If you ever get a card like this from me, know how much fun I had making it and know how much I love you
