Birthday Cards

Here are a couple birthday cards I’ve created

This one was for my husband, who turned 46 today.  I used cardstock from Tim Holtz’ Lost and Found collection for the card base.  The graphics are from the Domestic Goddess, A Proper Gentleman and Communiqué papers from Graphic 45.  I stamped the rest of Happy Birthday with a stamp in the Make a Wish Quotes by Fiskar.  The background is a piece of metal from a container of Beneful dog food (reuse & renew!) that was embossed using the Bricked Tim Holtz Sizzix folder.  I colored this piece with Adirondack alcohol inks (sorry, forgot which colors).  The inside was created by edging a piece of tan cardstock with Vintage Photo Distress ink and stamping it with a radio stamp from Anita’s, The Blah Blah Blah stamp from Stampabilities and a sentiment stamp of unknown origin.

This one is for my father-in-law.  The stamp is a Riley the Moose that was stamped on light green cardstock and colored with colored pencils.  The sentiment was stamped on the same cardstock.  Both were adhered to a plaid print paper.  The ribbon was glued to the back of the plaid paper before it was adhered to a plain white card base.  The smaller piece of ribbon was tied on to create a ‘bow’.


This in is a spare that I created because I wanted to use the wheat stamp by Inkadinkado. The background is tan cardstock sprayed with Caramel Apple Glimmer Mist.  The used tan, brown and green cardstock…not sure of vendor.  The wheat is embossed onto the green cardstock with Antique Linen Distress embossing powder.  The edges of the green cardstock were rounded with a punch and edged with Peeled Paint Distress ink.  I stamped the sentiment onto the tan cardstock, cut an X into the brown cardstock and rolled the edges back to show the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Express It magnetic set by Making Memories.  Finally, I added some green Mosaic Crystal Stickers by Mark Richards as accents.
