    Birthday Otter

    This is such a cute guy that I thought it would make a great birthday card for my nieces and nephews.

    I added some designer paper for the little guy to balance on and cut out a scallop circle. I then popped up the circle with dimensionals.  I stamped It’s birthday time and attached it to the center of the otter and added a little party hat on his head.

    For the inside I stamped, ” Hoping your birthday is filled with all the best things.”

    Gnome Valentine

    I made this card for my husband for Valentine’s Day and forgot to post it. The first photo shows the card closed.  For the second photo you can see the card opened into a z-fold card and the last photo shows the envelope I made to go with the card. I added some ink to the beard and die cut the rest of the card out.

    Pop Up Birthday Cupcake

    First off, Happy Birthday to my son and sister. These cards were created in their honor.

    Since I have learned how to do the 3D type cards I thought it was appropriate to make them for their birthdays.








    I made the pink card for my sister and the blue card for my son.  The popup cupcake has some writing on it to make it look like frosting swirls.  The candle has glitter paper for the flame.

    Fuchsia and Birthday Cake Cards

    For these cards I used a die cutting machine and I love how they turned out.

    The fuchsia is in purple and pink and I added some rhinestones at the bottom of the flower. The sentiment is backed using silver foil paper.  I used a simple sentiment on the inside, “Hope you have the best birthday.”















    For the birthday cake card I first embossed the front and then cut the letters out.  I added a blue balloon to the right and for the inside I made a popup to have the cake sit on it.  The cake is several layers of card stock and for some decoration on the cake I die cut some stars.
