For the end of the month I thought I would post both of these cards since they are both for birthdays.
The first one is using some of Stampin Ups designer paper that has bits of copper in the design. Each of the flowers were fussy cut before I colored the flowers with pink and green ink. I then layered an embossed piece of green vellum for the background. I then stamped a birthday sentiment on the inside.
This next card is one that we used to do by hand. It is called a twirling or spinner card. The main piece in the center used string or fishing line to make it twirl around, but now there is a special die that will do all of that for you. I used copic markers to color the vase and flowers and used a patterned paper for the background. I added a small birthday sentiment on the front and left the inside blank so that you can add your own message.
