Just blogging a birthday card in between Christmas projects.  I managed to finish my MIL’s birthday card a couple of days ago.  It’s not the homespun look I was originally trying to achieve but I think it turned out fairly elegant – it’s not my usual type of card for sure!

I used a PTI stamp that I got free in my last order and cut out a frame using my Cricut (shock!  I’ve used it more in the last week than I have since I got the thing!)  Lots of distressing with ink and with scissors to give my card a shabby but elegant look.  I used muted, earthy tones because I think my mother in law likes them (she lives in England so it’s a bit difficult to get to know her as much as I’d like).

I hope she enjoys her card.  If she didn’t know before, she’ll know now that we think of her often from “across the pond”.
