Birthday Greetings Across the Miles – by Sheri Holt

When you are far from friends and loved ones, there is no better way to let them know they are on your mind and in your heart than with a hand made greeting card. Sheri made this card extending birthday greetings across the miles in a fresh and summery fruit theme using lovely papers from Prima and one of our birthday sentiment stamp sets. Take a look:

Sheri took best advantage of these beautiful papers using a sheet for the background and cutting out some fruit to create the focal image panel with seam binding bow.

The sentiment panel is neatly tucked behind the fruity panel, adding to the clean-lined, crisp and fresh look.

The lovely seam binding bow pulls it all together so beautifully.

The bow is somewhat scrunched up for a more vintage look to tie in with the vintage theme of the paper.

And how do you get your bow to look scrunched up like that? Here’s a couple ways:

1) Store your seam binding wadded up. Rather than neatly wrapping it, wad it up in your hand and push it into a cello or plastic bag and seal tightly so it has to stay wadded up. This works great if you have a lot of seam binding in a lot of colors. Fill your bag tightly. The next time you go to use it, you’ll have some beautifully vintage seam binding!

2) This is much like the bow Deb Saaranen is so well known for. She wets the bow after it is made. Deb’s bow is made on the Original Bow Easy – (bow tutorial here).
