Hard to believe my daughter turned 21 this week! Because she is a bird lover (she has two), I knew I wanted to make a card with a bird (or two) on it. She also is a third-generation lover of the colour turquoise (inherited from my father and me) so was easy to choose the colour scheme too.
So I got out two bird charms, my Spellbinders, two microscope slides, silver tape, a few gems, paper, ribbon and a Martha Stewart edge punch. I expanded on the "Telescoping Card" tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, by not only creating the whole card from it, but mounting that as a feature on a larger rectangular card.
I also created the square charm from the microscope slides so it could be removed from the card if she wishes.
Yep, hard to believe my baby is a grown woman alright...
