Simple Birthday Card

Hello there! Just whizzing in to share 2 really simple birthday cards. These have to find their way in to the super efficient (!) Portuguese postal service by today or they may never reach their destination! And don't get me started on the increase in postal rates!

2 cards for 2 sisters. To save myself from being dragged into a "mine is better than yours" altercation, I've made both cards identical.... well, almost identical.

Cool Britannia papers in blue. To cut out the centre panel I used Spellbinders Scalloped Square die. For embellishment: 3 blings in the top right corner.
Inside - balloons for the birthday girl from Clearly Besotted's "Make A Wish" set.

The balloon and  greeting are from Clearly Besotted's Make A Wish set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.

I jazzed up the inside (since the card front is fairly simple) with Memento Rose Bud, Cantaloupe, Danube Blue and Bamboo Leaves.

And now for some real fun:

Tuesday Morning Sketches #217 - sketch
Try It On Tuesday "Going Dotty" - on balloons
One Stitch At A Time #182 "Anything Goes"
Crafters' Cafe #30 "Die-cuts / Punch"
The Paper Shelter #130 "Stitching"
Crafting by Design "Anything Goes"
Charisma Card #38 "Inside"
Seize The Birthday "Anything Goes"

That's for now. Thanks for stopping by and  I'll be skipping off to the Post Office. Come back tomorrow, will ya? I have a wee PolkaDoodle project to show you. Until then.... have a creative day, my friends!

Beijinhos!

  23. It always amazes me what a change of color can do to the look of a card. Even though you've used the same design and elements these cards look very different. A great set of cards - one for him and one for her!
