One of my quilting buddies turned 90 years old this week. She is an inspiration to everyone that knows her. I wanted to make her a special card, something from the heart instead of the store.
I started off with stamping a paisley print on one side of the card, and gluing a printed paper to the left. I have some lovely printed papers, and cut triangles from three prints for flying geese.
A quilt block was made using triangles in an hourglass block design, mounted on a darker square like a border on a quilt.
At the top is stamped “In the crazy quilt of life, I’m glad you’re in my block of friends”. I added a little bow to the right.
Inside, I like to fancy up the Happy Birthday with a couple of quilt block stamps.
On the back is my custom made stamp, so she knows I made it.
Then, the envelope got a couple of stamps too.
I hope you had a Happy Birthday, Donna!!
