Birthday Cards

Just making some birthday cards and thought I would share them. This one uses the new bird and branch punch from Stampin Up. I love this punch! I embossed the background with swiss dots and then sanded them off a bit.

I added a small gem to the bird for it's eye. and tucked it behind the branch a bit for dimension, the bird, itself is on a dimensional.

I love how this one turned out! Do you see that big flower, I made my own felt flower. I simply bought some felt and die cut it with my big shot. I will be doing a fun tutorial on that so you can all see how simple it is and begin making your own felt wonders.

I added a craft button tied with some twine for the flower center.

This one is super simple, I punched a border along the lower edge but did not run it all the way to the edges. I stamper the cupcake and used glossy accents and stickles to add some dimension to it.

Of course you have to have a masculine card, so I made this one. I was given some vintage music paper and used a small piece for the matt layer, tearing the edges. Then used four curly label punches to form a square. Punched some circle presents and popped them up.
I hope you enjoy these. I have some fun Valentine projects on the way. Just finishing up my year end stuff.

Grat cards. They are all just perfect but my fav is the first one with the pink and the bird.
