Horse Birthday Card - by my daughter

Good morning! I just thought I would pop in and share a card that my oldest daughter made for her best friend's birthday a few weeks ago! You can tell that they share a mutual love of horses - like most 12 year old girls I imagine! So Katie went through my stamps and papers and came up with this card - I helped her a little with the heat embossing and machine stitching - and gave her a hand on the bow, but other than that, the plan and execution of this card was all hers! It is a big 5x7 card to fit it all in!

She used my Tim Holtz distress tool to rough up the edges for a bit more of a rustic look. Pattern paper is from American Crafts and MME.

The stamp used on the front is from Unity - Easier with YOU by my side. Part of the inside sentiment came from that set as well, and the Happy Birthday was added with the July Kit of the Month

Here is another peek at the front - don't you love how the paislee paper shows through the vellum?

Here are the girls together - Katie on the left (who made the card), her BFF the birthday girl in the center, and my younger daughter on the right.

Thanks for dropping by today! I'm sure Katie would love to hear what you think - so feel free to leave comments for her! I will happily pass them on to her!

  5. Watch out mom - Katie is going to give you some competition! She is a very professional 12 year old! Beautiful card, layout and colors. I would say her friend loved it. Hope she does more.

  6. Yea! Such a gorgeous card! Well thought out! I love the wood panel in the back and that super paisley showing through the vellum! Black embossed stamping was genius and saving her from coloring that pretty horse! We have a new crafter in the house!
