Birthday Card For Mom

Hello crafty friends!
Today is my Mom's 91st birthday!
She is an amazing woman and one of the 
strongest and kindest people I know.
I wanted to make her a card, so I 
used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the 
Happy Birthday on black card stock.
I covered a scrap piece of white card stock with 
1" wide double sided tape, like Score Tape.
I pulled all the backing off the tape and stuck it to the
back side of the black piece so the sticky part was against the 
Happy Birthday cut out.
I sprinkled glitter over the sentiment,
the glitter stuck to the tape,
I shook off the extra and burnished it with 
my finger.  This helps to be sure it sticks and
gives it a nice shine.
You can see a little more of the shine in the 
picture below.
I punched out some flowers with a coordinating paper
and put "pearls" in the centers to finish off the front panel.
It was then adhered to a white card base.
This didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned it,
but I do like it and hopefully she will too.

Thanks for stopping by today,
come again soon.
Until then, Happy Crafting!
