A special Birthday Card for a very special lady

Hi there!

Hope you've all had a great start to this new week in October. I've been flipping through photos taken this summer and remembering all the beautiful days we had. 

Anyhow, thought I'd share the card I made for the very special lady that I mentioned before. The card has an unusual size, it's 12 x 6 because it contained a poem and a gift card holder on the inside. I simply folded a 12 x 12 cardstock in half.

I'm letting the photos speak for themselves. As you might guess, this card was very heavy and took almost as long to make as a regular layout.
