I like to keep extra cards on hand for those times when someone’s birthday sneaks up on me. You can imagine, I have a pretty healthy stash of cards to send! I seem to let them sneak up on me pretty frequently! I made this card with that occasion in mind.
It has a sweetness to it, but can be masculine as well. You may have noticed that I separated my birthday sentiment. It is normally all one image. I gently snipped the connecting pieces and then took a nail file and smoothed the edges and kept them round. This gave me a bit of wiggle room to play around with placement of the sentiment. I think that helps the bee on the flower become the focal point. I don’t worry too much about making a mistake. It’s just paper, I can make another one.
