And Yet Another Birthday Card

Today's card I'm sharing is for niece who will be celebrating her 18th birthday next week. Where did the time go? It's seems just like yesterday that I will catch her in my room coloring the walls with my make-up. Good times!

For this card I used The Glitter Sweet matstack from DCWV. I love the colors on this plaid cardstock. It's very girly. I made the flower and tag with the Cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes. I cut the flower at 3", 2 1/2", 2" and 1 1/2" and layered them on top of each other for a layered effect. The "Happy Birthday" is from the clear stamp set "Greetings" from TPC Studios. I made a matching envelope by adding matching paper to front and I used a scallop border punch from EK Success. The small paper flower was made with Spellbinders Megabilities Die Rose Creations.

Overall I really like the way this card turned out. Simple and sweet. My husband did mention that I will never be able to buy a store bought card anymore. When I asked why he said "When they open their cards they will say What the hell is this!' So no more store bought cards for me. And that's okay!
Thanks for stopping by.

Another Birthday Card

It's the season of birthdays here in the Tiffany house hold. Today I will be sharing a birthday card for my daughter's friend.

I used the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge for the cupcake and "happy birthday". The cupcake actually wobbles! Isn't that cute?  The background paper is from Michael's Recollection paper pack "Bright and Basic".  I also decorated the envelope to match the card.  Just add some paper that you use on the card and a bow and VOILA a matching envelope.

I love making cards. They're so much fun to make. I can't wait to make cards for Halloween and treat bags. YAY! Thanks for stopping by.

Fresno State Card

Happy Saturday! I have a card to share with you today. My nephew's birthday was last month and I wanted to make him a nice card. I hardly make anything for my nephew. It's hard for me to make things for boys. It always comes out girly. Since he goes to Fresno State and is in Phi Delta Theta I decided to make him a card with both logos.

For the Phi Delta Theta logo I used the Cricut Greek Digital cartridge and cut them out a 1 inch. For the Fresno State letters I used a jpeg image and used my SCAL2 software to cut it out. Those were cut at 4 inches. 

These was a very simple card to make but he loved it. Which makes me very happy. Thanks for stopping by and "GO BULLDOGS!"
