Regal birthday card for my mum

As my mum's birthday coincided with the jubilee weekend, I made her a "Queen for a day" card. I went with a red, white and blue theme as well, and used a white card blank with a blue square of card matted onto a red square. The crown is actually the end piece of an old Christmas cracker which I had in my craft box! I jazzed it up with a few sticky gems and used individual letter brads to make the word 'queen'. I wrote the rest of the sentence freehand, but used gold outline stickers to say happy birthday and 'to my dear mother'. It's not my favourite card that I've ever made but I thought it was quite topical.


  1. Pretty! Very effective x

  2. Happy birthday to your mum! I love the Jubilee theme and great idea using the end of a cracker :)
