Unbelievably our daughter turns 21 today. Unbelievable to me as the time has gone so quick as they tell you it will when you have your baby. Melissa is a beautiful, caring and very independent young lady discovering where her life will lead her. Melissa starts her Bachelor of Graphic Design at the end of February so she will be busy with that and hopefully it leads to an exciting job.
The card is a Gatefold Shutter Card, I followed this tutorial by Sandi. Normally, I like to follow tutorials with photos but I could find none for this style of card. The video was helpful as I could see the card action was meant to happen. Lately, Melissa has been telling me how she is into greys and black and not much colour so that is where I headed to find some paper for the card. Came across this daisy paper which I have always loved and waited for the right card. Thought a splash of pink was perfect so dragged out my Stampin Up card stock which I know always blends so well. Followed the tutorial for this surprisingly easy and very fun card. Die cut the flowers and numbers.
A video to show how the card opens.
Thought I would revisit the birthday cards I have posted over the years for our daughter.
