So I wanted to make a special card for a friends 60th birthday. I instantly thought of using the hunkydory window to the heart postcard collection. I used the a special friend toppers, matching paper and insert.
I folded an a5 cardblank and covered the front with patterned paper. I scored a piece of a4 acetate in the centre, then on one side scored a second line 2.5cm away. I creased the folds, added a couple bits of tape in the folded strip and glued it to my card blank. I wrapped some white ribbon around the card front and acetate to cover the glue, then tied in a bow.
I trimmed the picture side of the insert to fit the inside of the card. I stamped my 60th sentiment and added some glitter pen to add sparkle. I trimmed the greeting side of insert to be the same size as the toppers.
I glued the first topper in position on the front of the card blank. I positioned another on top of the acetate in line with the one on the card front. I then used the insert greeting paper to cover the glue on the reverse of the acetate. As a final touch, I added a stick on gem to the perfume bottle.
