Happy Birthday, Dear Sister

I originally made my sister  this birthday card back in June. However, since I decided to send her the note card set I made during SAF, I wanted a card to match.(We normally don't exchange presents.) Since I wanted a card larger than the note cards, I began with the Mat Stack 5 as my card base, but ended up cutting the bottom portion after I finished. I used the same design from the note cards.

 
During SAF, I didn't make a container for them because I wasn't sure about the size of the original note cards since they are too small to be mailed. I thought about mounting them on a 4 by 5  layer of card stock.  After much thought I thought it would just be easier to slip the small envelope into a larger one if my sister really wanted to mail the note card. After a trip to Hobby Lobby to buy the small envelopes, I decided to package them the way Danielle did in her SAF post. This is a beautiful presentation, don't you think?

  I decided to layer the cards in two batches of 4 and lay them horizontally.


  An up-close shot of the details. I used a Copic pen to color the flower.


I need to wrap this up and send it in the mail today so my sister receives it by her birthday a week from today. Thanks for looking.
