I've had a couple of commissions for birthday cards recently, I can only show you these two at the moment, though as the birthdays haven't happened yet.
This first card has been made using a vintage dress pattern advertisement made in 1964 when the person the card is for was born. The embroidered S was snipped off a damaged hanky.
This second card has hand-painted paper from India in the background, the image of the lady is a copy of a portrait, the rose image is a vintage one too.
If you'd like me to make a card for you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I charge £4.95 for large (A5) cards and £2.95 for small (A6) card, plus 60p postage.
