Hi Roadies! Jess here today with a card with a twist. With just a small adjustment to my embellishments I transformed this card into a card with a bonus gift attached.
I created the card as I normally would, leaving a large circular doily area on the lower half, surrounded by lots of layers.
I used a ton of Maya Road dies on this, as they really are wonderful for layers in all sorts of materials. I love the subtle detail the embossing leaves on many of the die cuts, like the stitch marks on the tag here and the lines on the notebook paper.
My paper choices were rustic and weathered so these wood and resin pieces really blended well with the overall feel of the card. The crochet trim was a bit too wide to fit in the tag hole so I trimmed it to one row of poms and it was a perfect fit... adorable!
And now the bonus gift! I created this felt doily and flower cluster to be removable because it's actually a hair clip! The two pre-formed felt flower embellishments were a natural pairing with the rolled rose. Did you know you can cut felt with the Maya Road dies? Think of the possibilities!
The back is very simply finished with a ribbon covered alligator clip. To attach the clip to the back of the card I carefully used a craft knife to cut two slits through the first few layers in the doily area. You can then slide the bottom of the alligator clip into the cut area to hold the hair accessory.
What a fun little gift to send to birthday girls big and small!
