Cutie card

1st birthday card for a special cutie! Here is a little green/pink card I made recently.

I took a piece of pink and white polka dot cardstock I had and punched the corners of it, then applied a big sticker that read Cutie, I outlined it with a pink marker and stamped happy {birthday} right above it (i wasn’t showing up much so I went over it with the same pink marker). I took a premade 1 sticker, attached it to some green paper and cut around it then added st after it so it says 1st. I applied the whole pink piece to the card and then edged the bottom with a heart punch. I swiped the edge with some pink ink. It needed a little more jazz so I took my pink marker and made dots around the corners and used a white pen to create some curved lines. It was finished with pink bakers twine at the fold. The inside was given a girly look with a cute clothesline stamp in red ink.


Birthday card – turning 1

I made a birthday card for a friend’s daughter that is turning one. I started with a plain kraft card and then layered some scrap paper to make it look interesting. The biggest piece was punched with a corner rounder.  I took a coordinating pink polka dot paper scrap and inked it with a message that read “ Sweet Birthday Wishes“, I thought this looked boring so I went over it with a glue pen and dusted some sparkly pink glitter over it….perfect for a little princess!  I used a chipboard accent of a cupcake from the Cupcake Love collection of Little Yellow Bicycle on the bottom right. I topped it with a number one sticker. I cut a strip of green polka dot paper, punched it with a heart design and then inked the edge of it so it would stand out from the background. I then took some of my glitter and accented the green strip paper.

To finish it off I took my handy-dandy white pen and went around the perimeter and drew little dashes. And lastly, I took some pink bakers twine and tied it around the fold to make it look just a bit more feminine! I love the way it turned out!

Oh and I also stamped the envelope, and added the same glitter color to add some pizzazz.
