More birthday cards!


I seem to suddenly have a lot of birthday cards to make and I really want to get on with my Christmas cards!  I haven't made any for myself yet and I need to make at least 25!  Help!

Right so these are all the same but are for different people (obviously!).  One is for a 50th birthday, one is for a 60th birthday and one is for my daughter-in-law's birthday.  They won't be comparing so I thought it would be easier to do the same design.  

I love an all white card and needed something quick. I saw this project on Sara Davies' blog on Crafters Companion so decided to use her ideas!  I'm sure she won't mind.

I used the Signature Collection Floral Delights Scalloped Border die, Sheena Douglass' embossing folder, flower die which I am afraid I can't remember who made it and used a freebie sentiment stamp.

You start off embossing the card using Centura Card, and attach to a 6" x 6" card.  Then cut out the Scalloped Border Die and use silicone glue to raise it above the base card.

Then using the flower dies, I cut one set in Centura card and one in pink paper, which I found in my stash.  I slightly shaped the flowers and off-set the two florets so there were gaps.  I attached them together using ordinary glue and glued them to the card as shown.

I cut a small tag and added the sentiment, curled it slightly and using silicone glue raised the tag slightly.

Job done.  Thank you Sara!

Thank you for looking.
