Birthday Celebrations

I just love birthday celebrations!  A number of friends and family have birthdays in March so it is the perfect month to focus on making some birthday cards.

Cake 1

I designed the cover of this birthday card using new products from the SU Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Brations brochure.   The background designer paper is from the Birthday Bash paper pack and I love the multiple colors in the design.  I decided to use the deco label framelits in the Daffodil Delight paper.  The stamp set is displayed in the Sale-A-Brations handout and got it for free with my $50 product order.  I really like the stamp set because there are a number of stamps that you can use together or separately which gives me lots of flexibility.  I wanted to highlight the cake and the “celebrate banner” so I used dimensionals to make them stand out.

Cake 2

I watched a video by Dawn Olchefske and I learned how to make three cuts on the inside of the card.   The cuts allow parts of the card to pop out which I decorated with different papers to look like gifts and  I put a custom-made bow on the top.  You have to have gifts at any birthday celebration, right?

Stamps: SAB Big Day

Framelits: Deco Labels Collection

  1. I love the pop out gifts on the inside of this card! I have it hanging on my card-holder banner above my mirror in my craft room and it’s the first one everyone always sees.
