Criss Cross Birthday Card

Hello! Happy Sunday! I am sure enjoying the beautiful weather we've been having this weekend! I had a scrapbook friend come over yesterday and we had a blast! I needed to make a card for Just Christmas and Birthday Cards (be sure to check them out - link on the top left of this page) - which needed to be a criss cross card. Since I was at a point to make a Birthday Card, I pulled out an older set of SU stamps that I think is fun & just adorable! I used various cardstock from my stash and the pp was from DCWV Safari stack - it just screamed "swamp" to me with all those leaves! My froggy was colored in with copics and I used SU ink to match my burgandy cardstock. The trim on my envelope is the apron edge puncher from fiskars. Hope you enjoy & let me know what you think!!!

First Birthday Card

I have not posted in a LONG time - I've been busy with my new job & very little free time. Someone I work with recently had a birthday & she loved the card I gave her (it was my previous posted card). She asked me to make a card for her granddaughters first birthday, so that's what I'm posting today. I was really happy with how it turned out. I used CTMH Sweet Pea paper & the image is CTMH as well. The font is cut from Ashlyn's Alphabet and outlined with pink copic glitter pen - the flower stems was cut from cricut using home accents and was also outlined with green copic glitter pen. I used copics to color in the stamped image and though you can't see it, used clear glitter pen on the flower petals of the baby. I also used my pink copic to make the "centers" stand out of the prima flowers. The brads in the middle are little buttons (which I thought perfect for a baby-ish card). Well I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it!
