I made this card some time ago for a friend who is the queen of up-cycling commercial cards.
The image that I have used was one on a 'card' my grand daughter brought home for me from kindergarten, some four years ago - it was so pretty, and I am so sentimental, I could not just bin it, and then came the opportunity to use it for a very special friend.
I fussy cut the teapot image, and then mounted it over the blue doily Die cut - I cannot recall the name of it off hand, and it's so old it is possibly discontinued by now!
These were then mounted over some wide broderie anglaise lace I had been given, which I secured with some washi tape.
The final detail was the Happy Birthday embossed with platinum ep., hand cut into a banner and sponged with Whisper Rich Plum ink
The inside was strengthened with a white card panel as the front was fairly heavy, and the edges of that were also sponged with the Rich Plum ink, and then some washi tape as a finishing detail.
