I saw this wrapping paper with jars of sweets all over it and new it would look good on cards. my daughter helped me cut out the jars. I used a strip of an old brown envelope for a chunky shelf and arranged the jars along it. I stuck the brown paper down with sticky pads so it stuck out slightly and I used glue to stick down the jars.

Cards don't always have to be just one type of card making . For this card I have used Iris folding and stuck cut out flowers on also. I used two different papers white and a pale flower patterned paper. I used the same paper to cut the flowers out from. I stuck the flowers down using sticky pads so they stuck out. I used a shiny green paper for the leaves to give it texture and contrast from everything else.
I used the same union jack bunting as I had used for the Iris folding male shirt as this card was for the other twin. I used a car template for the iris folding sticking down the strips with sellotape. I added the road trip sentiment to the middle and stuck it down with glue, this was from a set of fathers day decoupage I brought from Osbornes. The wheels are black card stuck down with glue. I backed the "Happy Birthday" sentiment with the union jack bunting so it tied in with everything. I decided to use red and blue for the border. I covered the inside of the card with white paper.
