birthday card

A padded birthday card made from several layers of embossed and die cut paper and textile. One side has a large section of textile within an embossed frame adorned with flowers and gold decorations. On top of this is a die cut image of a bunch of flowers. On the reverse, two embossed and die cut flaps (the left one damaged) open out to reveal a poem on textile beneath, entitled 'To My Brother'. This is set within an oval cut out section within another piece of embossed paper. On top of this, around the poem is a die cut garland of flowers.
