Mary Poppins birthday card

My friend Di's birthday is this week.  She works as a nanny, and she sings (I know her through choir - actually, multiple choirs!) So I decided to make her a Mary Poppins bookmark and card for her birthday.
Gotta love it when you have an idea for a card or bookmark or whatever, you make it, and it turns out exactly like you wanted. Awesome.

I made the bookmark first, and loved it so much, I decided to make a matching card.  And when I had them both together, I danced a little jig, I was so happy with how they turned out!!

I made a video of how I made the card - here 'tis!

PS I apologise for the video being a little bit dim in some parts - I made it in the evening, and I don't have a studio with special lights or anything, I just do my best with what I have :)

Thanks for visiting :)  


  1. These are AMAZING!!! Absolutely beautiful work! Where did you find the Mary Poppins stamp?

    1. Hi, Jingle - it's not a stamp - if you fast forward to about 2min15secs into the video, you'll see what I did for the image of Mary Poppins 😉

  2. And after watching your video, I'm back. Your Mary Poppins is AMAZING!

  3. Oh my goodness!!!! These are totally fantastic and so perfect for your friend!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

  4. Amazing and thank for sharing the awesome trick to make a silhouette, so cool! Thanks for sharing!
