I have not made Merv a card, how bad is that - so I will share the Birthday card that I made for Sonya.
I used the same papers as the book, some old Crate Papers and stitched them together using the sewing machine. The focal point for the card is the oblong, stitched around the edge with Sonya's initial on it. A few punched daisies and a ribbon finish the decoration. I have attached the stitched front to Craftwork Cards scallop edge cards, I love the cream ones with these papers.
Up close for the finer details.
Inside the card, scaps of paper layered up, the message was stamped and all the papers edged with glitter glue.
