Birthday Bits!

I have been making a lot of birthday cards lately. I realize that is the kind of card that is probably sent or given the most. We all look forward to getting birthday cards don't we?I had a lot of fun making this card. I used lots of layers on the front. Many shapes of punches to layer under my sentiment. I think this card is my favorite. I have been seeing a lot of cards lately with text backgrounds so this is my first time using this paper. I love it. And the butterfly with the pearl body is so whimsy. Below is a glimpse of the inside of the card. Many times I leave the inside of the card blank for personalization, but for birthday cards, I do like to decorate inside as well as out.
Another one of my new favorite cards is below. I love the pretty flowers. I stamped them in yellow but used 2 different yellows to add dimension. Again I worked with layers for the sentiment. I am loving layers.

Inside the card is stamped the same image just a lighter version. I stamped off the stamp first and then stamped it inside. Make a wish... is the perfect birthday sentiment. Funny, these flowers also remind me of dandelions and when they are all white and puffy you can make a wish and blow off all the seeds!

Both of these cards are available for purchase in my oniline etsy store. I am really trying to amp up my mini business. I appreciate everyone who has had me make cards or gifts for them! I am available to do custom cards as well, so if there is a certain card you are looking for but don't see, drop me a note!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work today. I hope you enjoyed!
Have a great day!
