Flower Birthday Card

A few weeks ago, I realized I had not purchased a birthday card for my daughter Jessica (Sunnystitching) who lives in England.

I put all plans aside and decided to make her a card and mail it that same day.  I wanted it to be special, especially because it would arrive to her after her birthday.

I had some crocheted flowers on hand, some beads, felt and blank goes

First I chose which flower and cut the felt to be the stem and leaves. Got out the white glue and a great adhesive roller (only 99 cents at our local 99 Cent Store).
Second, positioned the stem, leaves and flower on the card, and glued them using the adhesive roller and a little of the white glue.

After glueing the flower, I chose some beads to glue in the center of the flower for a little added dimension.

Now it was time to add "Happy Birthday" on the front of the card.  I printed the words in green on a yellow piece of paper and glued it on front of card with the adhesive roller.

Now I made the gift certificate to put inside the birthday card, printing the gift certificate on paper, added a colorful border to it and glued it on a piece of the yellow paper.
Last, I wrote a poem and printed it on paper same as above and glued it on yellow paper and then glued that on the inside of the card. 

I was so excited to send it to Jessica.  I felt it expressed just how much Jerry and I love her.
Sending words of love can make a heart glad.
