I know, I know – this is slightly different to the video – but after I finished shooting, I decided I wanted to see what it would look like with the brown lettering on the sentiment, rather than the lily white letters they began as…so I used my copic markers and coloured them in dark brown and stuck them back on the card (similar to what I did in this video here). I rather prefer it this way, but it was too late to go back and reshoot the video.
I figured you’d all get the idea though so I didn’t need to reshoot =)
The ‘happy birthday’ stamped flags were inspired by Kristina Werner, who’s work I adore (similar to her card in this post)! I’ve been told I have a Kristina Wernerish style, so it’s no surprise that I just LOVE her work and that I’m constantly inspired by her creations!

This card was a commission I did for someone last month, but have only got around to posting just now!
My two best friends have just got married last weekend, and I have been super busy doing all the stationary for their wedding, which went off wonderfully (thank goodness!). [I hope to share the stationary I did for them soon. It’s super scrumptious – I only wish I knew half the techniques I used on it for back when I got married, and my stationary would have no doubt been similar…]
Back to this card – I love the American Craft Thicker stickers – they add a nice bit of bling to the overall card. The patchwork quilt heart was all hand drawn and cut out (rather laboriously) but I’m sure there is definitely a simpler way of doing this technique, I just didn’t think it through properly when I was doing it for the video, but you get the idea anyway I’m sure =)
The video is below, I hope you enjoy watching it & happy crafting!
