Card for Mother-in-law and friend

As my Mother- in-Law's birthday and a good friend’s birthday are within days of each other, I decided that this year I would make the same card for both of them.  I was just hoping that the stamps were going to arrive on time for me to make the cards otherwise I was going to have to think of another design and luckily for me they did.

I used the JustRite Violette Vintage Labels cling stamp set to first stamp the topper onto cream card which I then coloured with Copic pens and some of the background with Distress Ink.  Then I cut them out using the JustRite Vintage label and banner die.


I stamped around the edge of the card also with the Violette Vintage Labels set and also coloured with Copic pens.  I then made the background using the Couture Creations Embossing Folder Tied Together on a purple Stardream card.  I used purple ribbon down both edges of the background paper and on one side put a bow and on the other put a strip under that has 'Happy Birthday' on.  You cannot see it very well it these photos.

I cut out the sentiments from the Britannia dies and mounted these onto Spellbinders Framed Tags 1 for my Mother in Law and onto Spellbinders Ribbon Banners  for my friend and then mounted these on the cards.
