Celebrate : Martha's Birthday
Posted by Guest
Hi, it's Tracy, the crafts intern. Tuesday was Martha's birthday, so Carrie, our international editorial intern, organized a thoughtful gift for Martha from all the summer interns.
Everyone was given a card to write and decorate in any way they liked. All the cards were then compiled into a box we constructed using chipboard, ribbon, and Martha Stewart Living decorated papers. The results were beautiful! Cards were crafted, etched, stitched, printed, illustrated—you name it.
1 My card had two layers. The top layer masked the bottom layer with cut out birthday candle shapes so the pattern underneath would show through.
2 When you open the card…
