Index Card Holder Birthday Card

This is the sort of card that I would like to receive, plain , clean and definatley - a less is more card!
Card with Index Card Holder
I’ve used a cream linen card blank, a brass index holder, that I bought on e-bay ages ago, a paper daisy and some tiny flat backed pearls..
Close Up of Card using  Index Card Holder
The back plate is made using a Nestabilities label die cut on my big shot and backed with foam pads for extra dimension.  I had to fiddle about a bit on my computer to get the font just the right size to fit behind the holder.
To add a touch of sparkle I have given the daisy a light dusting of translucent micro glitter from Stampin' Up.
The font I have used is from "Two Pea In A Bucket" - called 2Peas Typo - it cost $2.99, (about £1.60?), they also have some very nice free fonts if you look in there digital section. I've used font size 11 and the colour is Pantone 479C.
I don't think I have ever mentioned that I put an insert in all my cards, hand cut and made using A4 copier paper, usually white or cream to match the card blank, occassionally I use other pastel colours to match an embellishment or background paper that I have used.  .... it just adds an extra touch of quality.
