Another very special birthday has come around that fast moving calendar. For this mixed media card I dug into my selvage and trim stashes. Did a bit of sewing them onto scrapbook paper. Then added a Tim Holtz paper doll and typed and stamped the sentiment.
Then an artsy envelope was required. I have not altered an envelope in quite some time. So that was fun.
I especially have not altered an envelope back in an even longer time. I’m fairly certain I went back later to add an edge to the “Letter” letters so that they stood out better. But failed to update with a photo. Not important, don’t sweat the small stuff...right?
Since I indicated on the envelope outside that there was a letter inside (not just a card), I did actually write a letter. That also felt wonderful to do. It was a nonsense letter as we email often. That doesn’t leave a lot to say in a letter. One must be a bit creative when writing a nonsense letter. I’ll be working more on that idea.
A very Happy Birthday wish to you Sheila!
