My Mother-in-law has a birthday in January and I have already completed her card. I used a cuttlebug folder to add texture to a B that I stenciled and cut out. Then I lightly sanded it to make the texture really pop. The twigs/branches were done with punches and the phrase was stamped and then cut out with a Spellbinder's die. I really love the soft colors with the paper rose. It's going to have to be mailed in a special envelope though. The rose is at least 1" thick.
