Happy Saturday! Today I’d like to share a floral birthday invitations design for a friend of mine daughter’s first birthday. With her brilliant cooking skills, she will host a birthday party inspired from Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter afternoon tea. Scrumptious fondant cakes, bundt cakes, sponge cakes, chocolate slices, scones and teas on vintage cups and stands- that’s how she imagines her daughter special day. A beautiful floral arrangement is the key of the day’s celebration, so I decided to incorporate the whimsical watercolour floral into the invitations.Read more
A while a go I came across a nice handmade Valentine card from one of my inspiration blogs, Dandee. I swoon the hearts stitched together project and wonder if I could make one someday! The day has came when I need to make my boyfriend’s birthday card, I thought a cute and romantic handmade card will be perfect for him. My boyfriend loves globe and map so my idea is stitching the hearts onto a print out of world map. Follow me how to create quick and easy this DIY tutorial!
Print the template here:
To begin the DIY project, you need to print the artwork above and prepare red embroidery , needle, and scissors.
Cut the long embroidery approx 60 cm. You might not need that long but it is better to have it more instead of running out the embroidery in the middle of stitching.
The stitching process starts with poking the dots so while you are at the back of the card you are still able to see the holes. Stitch the paper by creating x and repeat until you fill both hearts.
To tidy up the back of the card, I attach the same size plain card with glue. Now you can fold the card and show up your finished hearts! Don’t forget to write on your love message inside the card!
Today is my boyfriend 25th birthday! I was planning about present, birthday dinner, cake and don’t forget….greetings card! My idea this time is creating a humour birthday card. Inspired by a simple typography graphic like ‘keep calm and carry on’ poster with solid background, this card is funny and quirky.
I quoted a sentence, something remind us how silly most of the bartenders still ask us the proof ID even we both are 24 and 25 years old! We might look younger than our ages though. That moment, I laughed to him and said, “We might need to show our ID even when we are 30!”
