Rose Red Birthday

Rose Red Birthday


In this feminine floral birthday card, I paired Rose Red Cardstock and Tangerine Tango Cardstock. I love the four-corner layout jazzed up with the Scallop Punch element, Perfect Polka Dots Folder and Floral District Designer Series Paper. This layout was inspired by Mojo Monday #249

Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister, Makayla!

Strawberries for Mom


Homemade Strawberries! I love using the conventional shapes to create something unexpected. In this birthday card for my Mom, I used the Full Heart Punch and Perfect Polka Dot Folder to create this strawberry with the Little Leaves Sizzlits. I even made a mini strawberry for the inside of the card! It was really fun to give this card to my Mom yesterday for her birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!

Featuring: Debra’s Peek-A-Boo Boy Birthday Card

At last week’s stamp camp, we created our own Peek-A-Boo cards.  This is Debra’s creation for her young nephew.  I love the Pacific Point….in varying textures and dimensions!  The Blue Ribbon stamp set was a great choice for this layout.  What a great idea!  Thanks for sharing, Debra!

Peek-a-Boo Poppies Birthday Card

Peek-A-Boo Poppies - Exterior

In this card, I created a peek-a-boo effect by folding cardstock and cutting out aligned circles.  Then I framed each cut out with a scallop ring in Wisteria Wonder.  Dimensionals added a great effect on each panel.  Then, ribbon and rhinestones added some jazz to the front.  Wow! What a card!

Snail Adhesive, Item # 104332 - The adhesive is super important on this project.  You need a strong seal to attach the extension panel on to the base of the card.  After you score to create the accordion base, you will need to punch the peek-through holes and then seal up the folded portion to create the middle page of the card, seen below.
