2 Sketches 4 You Birthday Card

I used the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You for this birthday card (got loads of family birthdays coming up). The sketch used a tall card, which I normally find hard to use, but this came together pretty easily. (Except for cutting the circle window, which I had to do free-hand with a craft knife, because the card was too big to fit through the Big Shot.) It's great now I'm doing quilting, because it means I permanently have my sewing machine out!

Papers, Leaf die cutter, Stamp: Stampin' Up
Big brads: Making Memories
Scalloped lace: Ebay
Paper Hydrangeas: Prima


  1. Very pretty! Love the lace trim and the leaves! Thanks for entering your card this week at 2S4Y! :) Kathy

  2. Stunning work Helen! Thanks for playing at 2S4Y!

  3. I'm speechless of all your gorgeous projects. The weddingcard with all the buttons (great idea) and your patchwork. I love using the sewingmachine but only on my cards and layouts. Did some kidsclothing when the boys were little. Have a good weekend Helen.

  4. i really really love your combination here with the patterned paper and the stamping... everything looks fabulous :D
