Ooohhhhh..... so much to say about this one. It started simple, but I just kept adding on to it.
I don't even know who the paper is by - it's some old stash from years and years ago.
The Angel is also a very old stamp, by Stamp-a-Claus. I stamped it onto marker paper, then colored it with ChartPak markers (similar to copics), cut it and mounted it on white cardstock, then on olive cardstock. I attached her to some other cardstock with DP and covered her button with a little blue button brad, then turned it over and traced the whole thing onto the back of another piece of cardstock so I could cover the entire back. Once all put together, I rubbed the edges with positively pink SU ink. She's supposed to be a bookmark.
The sentiment on the tag is a rub-on. I rubbed the edges on this too, added an eyelet and a ribbon.
For the card itself, I rubbed all the edges with positively pink. I used my crop-o-dile to punch the big holes along the diagonal edges and then looped ribbon through. To keep the sides of the card together, I first used my paper piercing tool to punch guide holes, then used some pink and green embroidery thread to sew up the sides. The "flower" was punched from the cuttlebug, I placed a button on top and marked the holes, then punched two small holes in the "flower". I cut my ribbon a little longer (knowing I would ruin the ends) and pushed it through the back side of the "flower" with my paper piercing tool, then through the button. Once through, I tied the bow and trimmed the ends.
I used the rock n' roll technique for the Happy Birthday with Positively Pink and Olive then attached the sentiment on the front with some cute heart and button brads. Then added another ribbon.
So much fun!! Just a note... however you attach the sides... do it LAST. It was pretty easy to punch the diagonal edges and attach the brads being able to open the card up.
I love your idea of a bookmark for one of the tags! I have never seen ribbon laced through a card like that and I love it. I definitely sense a case coming on! Thanks for sharing. Whoever gets this will most definitely be smiling.
