A good friend of mine was born on Christmas Day. It’s a good idea to make the Christmas greeting card and the Birthday card distinctly separate on this very particular day (I would expect nothing less myself). So, as the birthday card, I came up with a bouquet of roses against a brown card. The bouquet is held by an origami fold that started as what ‘origamists’ call a “bird base”. I tweaked it a little bit to make it look like a plastic bouquet wrapper using a Japanese block print origami paper (a current favourite). Compose the roses together and voila!
