Make A Wish by Lynne Moncrieff


This card was made for a friend’s birthday, knowing she liked Character Constructions stamps.

I intentionally kept the design simple as I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful vintage French paper and the stamped focal.  At first viewing you might not realise that this image comprises several individual stamps.

Character Constructions Stamp Sets - Blue Daisy No. 7 (woman and hat) – I also used stamps from other Blue Daisy sets:- No. 2 (flower on stem and flower head).  No. 6 (arms)
Glue Stick (UHU or Tombow)
Double Sided Tape
Extras: Vintage Paper, Fabric, Lace



Adhere vintage French paper to cardbase. Stamp woman. Trim waist with fabric scrap.  Onto scrap pieces of vintage paper, stamp hat, arm and flower. Fussy cut. Adhere hat to woman’s head. Cut upper arm to make a suitable length. Apply adhesive only to upper end of arm. Adhere to main image. Slightly bend the arm and hand before adhering the flower to her hand. 

Stamp Affirmation onto scrap paper. Only Make A Wish from the Affirmation is required.  Layer to lace and fabric scraps below stamped focal. 

Onto another piece of scrap paper, stamp flower three times. Cut into flag shape. Attach fabric scraps before adhering to upper corner.


I thought I would also share the insert and envelope detail. I had already written my birthday message to my friend which is why I have obscured some of the insert and envelope.

Tear paper to required size. Stamp ELB sentiment onto paper. Adhere top edge to inside cardbase with double sided tape. 


Onto two tiny scraps of paper, stamp flower and onto other piece, ink up “wish” only from Affirmation stamp. Adhere to upper corner of envelope with fabric scraps.

Until next time,
