Happy Birthday Nanna Papercraft!

This week is a big one for birthday celebrations – it’s time to wish Nanna Papercraft happy birthday.

Mum loved the pastel butterfly card I made last week, so I decided to make another version for her birthday card.

As well as sharing a love of paper, Mum is a great sewer (unfortunately we don’t share this talent).  So, I got out my sewing machine and used it to create the heart filled shaker background.

Heart Birthday Shaker Card with sewn edges & Garden in Bloom butterflies. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Stampin’ Up! have three punches that create a variety of great heart shapes – which make fabulous shaker fill {confetti hearts, hearts border & itty bitty accents}.

Sewing the edges to create a shaker pocket makes this style of card super simple.  Plus, the sewing adds some great texture.  Your regular sewing machine will do the job (no need to buy anything in particular to sew on cards) but you’ll want to keep a special needle just for paper as they can go blunt.

Happy Birthday Nanna Papercraft!!!  Looking forward to spending the day with you and celebrating lots more with you.  With lots of love from Kelly & the rest of the Papercraft family xxx
