I bought a pack of plain cream cards from the craft store and these are the cards I made.
I stamped the damask scroll and placed a small crystal in the centre.
For this card, I cut a scrap of beige linen fabric and frayed the edges by pulling out threads. I used spray adhesive to attach it to the card and then pinned this lovely vintage style butterfly brooch through the card. I think this is a lovely gift all on its own.
For this card I thread a chocolate brown velvet ribbon through a square diamante buckle, then glued it to the card.
I picked some small twigs from our garden and thread one through the shank on the back of this diamante button. I attached it to the card with a hot glue gun.
This is one of my favourites. I traced a bird stencil onto some 'script' scrap booking paper and glued it to the card. I then broke off a piece of twig so it looked like a tree branch and glued it under the bird. I used a black felt pen to draw in some feet so the bird was perched on the branch.
This is more of a cute fluffy bird. Again I cut out a bird shape from patterned paper, then attached a collection of feathers to the wing and a small self-adhesive crystal for the eye.
Lastly I made a Happy Birthday swing card. I stamped the script dress and coloured in a strip across the waist to look like a belt and added a little crystal. I also stamped the Happy Birthday and then threaded through a piece of organza ribbon.
I have a small selection of stamps that have different greetings on them such as Happy Birthday and Many Thanks, so I can quickly stamp inside each card when I write on it.
Happy Birthday to all my Gemini friends.
