Birdday, I mean Birthday Card

How cute are these felt and fabric birds?! They are 3D stickers I picked up specifically to make my mom a birthday card. I started with a white card base, sponged some blue ink on the background, then embossed it with the damask-ish pattern. I used a bird washi tape to border the top of the card. I layered vellum leaves, felt flowers, paper flowers, and gold glittery swirls cut from my Cricut. I think it is a very happy card perfect to wish mom a happy birthday.

Sister of My Heart

For the sister of my heart. I made her a friendship book filled with quotes, pictures, and photos of us. I then made myself a scrapbook layout using the photos of us. So many memories in such a few short years. Love that girl!

Little Birdie Card

A little birdie card to say "Thinking of You". The papers are Kan Ban. I like them because they have foil on them. This was a quick card I put together to send to a friend who moved. The felt bird is too cute!

Work Birthdays

This set of cards was made for fellow employees at work. We celebrated summer birthdays all at one time, so I made each of them a card. We used to celebrate for each semester, Fall, Spring, and Summer, but we haven't been able to do that for a while. I do hope it happens more! I made the card base by cutting a 12x12 sheet of polka-dot cardstock into a scallop circle, then cut that in half, then folded each half in half. So one sheet of cardstock gave me 2 scalloped cards. (I hope that makes sense.) I layered a blue scallop circle and a birthday patterned scallop circle. A smaller pink patterned scallop circle was topped with a 3D cupcake sticker. I tied a sheer pink ribbon around the front and pop dotted some circles and the sentiment to complete the ensemble. I guess it's good the birthdays were for ladies, cuz this is definitely a girly card! lol

Father's Day Hot Air Balloons

How about a couple of Father's Day cards? One for my dad, and one for the hub's dad. I covered a white card base with blueprint paper (why? blueprints have nothing to do with hot air balloons, but I liked the color, and it seemed manly, that's why!) I added a strip of brown patterned paper and multi-striped paper. A bright green cardstock was embossed and backed with white cardstock. I cut out a blue scallop circle and backed it with white, topping it with the hot air balloon stickers and clouds. I embossed a strip of brown patterned cardstock with a ruler design and added a tag that reads Happy Father's Day. I loved the hot air balloon stickers. I had to buy them and I'm glad I got to use them for the dads cards.
