Peek Of The Week - Lola's 9th Birthday Card

It’s Peek Of The Week time again and today I’d like to share with you a card I made for a special little girl’s ninth birthday.  She is called Lola and she’s the daughter of my eldest’s partner.

I like making large cards for little fingers, so in this case I created a card base that measured eight inches square.

The topper is from Hobby house. I cut out the letters for Lola’s name and the numbers on my trusty ScanNcut.

The embellishments are Tattered Lace fancy flourishes, pin dots and mini honeycomb panel.

The MDF ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment was one I had in my crafty stash, as were all the backing papers. I used Nuvo drops to add in more details,  and I made the bows and floral embellishments myself.

I'm really pleased with it – but I think I’m going to have to make an envelope large enough to take it!

I have to confess I made a complete mess of this at one point!  I somehow managed to stick everything upside down and I inadvertently created an Australian card! I hadn't realised that I'd turned the base around at some stage and I just kept on going!  But the solution was easy; I cut the front off the card and stuck it down onto a new base - the right way round this time.  It was daft of me, but we all make mistakes… and at least the card is now super-rigid!
