Yet another birthday card. Mhmm… This time round, I’m sad to say I was harbouring an art block. My creative juices were drained; evaporated into the air of this injustice, stressful world of adulthood.
Anyways, yes. It was my good friend, Hema’s birthday. The Christmas Eve girl. For many years now, all her birthday cards are made by my good self. Even as contraint as my time gets, I will try to find some time to make one. Hear that, Hema? Appreciate me!

Seriously, I think the last time I did this type of paper flower fan wheel was during my primary school days. I had confidently told myself making one would be an easy feat. But goodness me! Making a big one was not as easy as I had thought. I used 2 long strips of cardstock to make this one big paper wheel. Even then, it didn’t turn out as perfect as I’d wanted it to be.
3 signature dots intact. Yup. I had also edged the flag banners with chalk ink to make it look aged.
A self-made envelope, thanks to my loyal envelope-maker. Fits the card perfectly. The only thing I worry was the glue tape that I’d used to put the envelope together. Not sure if it was strong enough by the time my friend opened the card. Anyhows, I’d sealed the envelope with a red wax seal in the end. Unfortunately, it slipped my mind to take a picture before I’d hand it over to my friend.
