Stitched Birthday Card - plus another.

for a friend who is also a fellow CD Sunday teamie.

This year I decided to do a stitched card.  I thought an easel card would be different having not previously made a stitched easel.  I needed something to act as the 'stop' so I decided to stitch a nameplate using the stitching font (here) that I had purchased many moons go but not actually used.
Here is the card:
The pattern for the card came from here but the deco roses that I liked came with the Get Well Soon sentiment so I had to change that for the Happy Birthday.  I found a tag somewhere in matching pink and used Microsoft Word to add Pamela's name in the stitching font.  To this I then added the double rose spray by pricking them out from the main pattern.
As you can see a special birthday for Pamela so I added the very pretty transparent glitter peel off numbers.  I can't remember where I got that particular sheet and the numbers are running out - so when they are gone they are gone!
I loved making this and now I have braved stitched fonts I will try this again.

p.s.
I said I would like to try this again and I have.  A friend saw Pamela's card and said how much they liked it so I here is one I have made for her.
Her birthday is at the end of the month so all done in plenty of time.

  1. It's a beautiful card Carol and stands out from all my other cards. Strangely almost every card was pink and I had two flower bouquets that were also mainly pink. Good job I like pink LOL! Thank for helping to make my day a little bit special.

  2. Happy Birthday to Pamela, this card is stunning Carol. The stitched name works so well as the stop too.
