Birthday Wishes for My Aunt

Birthday Wishes for My Aunt

I found this little quote on Pinterest and knew I was going to use it on a card for my Aunt's birthday card. "Only an Aunt can give hugs like a Mother, keep secrets like a Sister and share love like a friend." The card I am making is for her 65th birthday and the party is this weekend in Surrey, BC. Most of my family, will be there
so it will be an great time. I am really looking forward to it.

I like my cards to have a homemade look so I keep them very simple. I picked up a package of blank cards at the dollar store, in white. I used a couple of sprays of shimmer mist in periwinkle and key lime on the inside and the outside of the card and let them dry. This gave the card a nice water colour look. I used my tea dye distress ink and a sponge along the edges of the card to distress the card inside and out. I glued a small strip of scrap lace along the front of the card. and added some floral stickers. The butterfly I cut out from an old tissue box.


 I added some glue and glitter along the veins of the butterfly and glued it to some card stock. I then cut it out and creased it so that its wings would stand up on the card. I added a floral sticker to the inside of the card and I added the verse. After I saw the pictures I went back and added some rhinestones along the lace. It was enough to just add a little extra brightness.




The gift I wrapped in some great wrap I found at Winner's. I went to my favourite shoe store and got three like size boxes and wrapped them all the same. A great tip I found on Pinterest is to use a tape runner rather than tape to wrap your gifts so you have no tape showing on your finished gift. I have been trying this out and am very happy with the results.



If you want a really easy full bow like the one I have on my gift. I tie my gift with curling ribbon. I tie on four or five strips of extra curling ribbon. I then cut a few strips of matching gift wrap and tied them in for a matching effect. To top it off. I took two co-ordinating curling bows from the dollar store and stuck them together. I then add these to my own curling ribbon bow. You now have a super deluxe bow for about two dollars. I am going to use my card more like a tag, because if I put it in the envelope it will flatten the butterfly.



 My Aunt is a very special person in my life and I wish everyone in the world the love of a really special person.

  13. Reliably is Mother's Day is the chief novel by British maker Hilary Mantel, appropriated in 1985 by Chatto and Windus. It was animated to a constrained degree by Hilary Mantel's own specific experiences as a social work colleague at a geriatric recuperating focus which included visits to patients in the gathering and access to case observes, the loss of which have a basic effect of the novel.
