An Interlude of Birthday Cards

If you ever receive a birthday card from me, you're lucky. If you receive a card on time, it's brought in a panic from a shop. The thing is, you see, birthday cards are such a great opportunity to play, try something different, not get too caught up in the perfect result, and show somebody that you REALLY care about them. This usually means I have a great idea in my head.

Most of the time I fail to execute said idea. But this is what happened when my two best friends turned 40, and my fairy God-Daughter turned 9 under lockdown.  A chance to play with pop-up and paper-cuts, creating something beautiful and surprising for the inside with just a hint of it on the front.

Happy birthdays, folks!
