Brother in law birthday


This is a handmade birthday card and bookmark. You can see both sides of the bookmark have been personalized with his name on one side and the PI symbol on the other (he is a mathematician, and it happens to be one of my favorite numbers) in multiples. Each one of the multiples utilizes different paper, the top a shiny metallic paper, the middle an opaque blue and the last a transparent blue vellum. The card I made with the same metallic paper in the center, and a soft almost fabric like paper for the details. The center is three layers (soft, metallic, then soft for the flower) and has a 3 dimensional brad that I cut the tabs off of and glued on. The inside has a robot that I embossed with silver metallic embossing powder. This was actually sent out a while back but due to the distraction of my recent animation projects (and my husbands health) I never got around to uploading it to the blog, so here it is.
