Photo Frame Birthday Card - For Lu

I made this card for my niece, Lu, who will be turning 21 on September 2. It is another easel card very similar to the wedding card that I made for Krystle using a different frame designed by  Krewella Kreations which I also turned into a photo frame. I was so glad to discover Krewella's blog. She is sharing her fabulous files for free in Studio, SVG, GSD and WPC formats. She has lots of free wonderful files which can easily be downloaded from her blog.

I used the same flourish heart that I used on Krystle's wedding card which i got from Mrs. Miles' blog (posted on her blog January 11, 2012). I love her blog and she also has a lot of free fabulous files. Her policy is to download her files directly  from her blog so I won't be able to include the flourish heart in the card file that I'm sharing.

I used the old technique of 'faux chipboard' to make the frame sturdy which explains the 3 pieces of the same image in the photo below as well s the message inside the card which I adhered to the flourish heart.. I'm making good use of my trinket collection, this time with 2 different heart charms which are just adorable. I covered the photo with acetate which I forgot to do with Krystle's wedding card.I used the same leaves,  leafy_sprig C00355_23067, from the Silhouette store.

I'm including the sentiment, Birthday Wishes along with the ribbon tag which I created as well as the message  inside the card. The fonts used were Umber SS and Channel Slanted. Also included in the file are the ornate frame with the base of the easel card, squares for the photo and acetate so you don't have to figure out the measurements. The card is about 5.25" x 5.25".
