It's Birthday Season (it always is LOL)

Pin It

I feel like I have been making birthday cards all month - and I am not done yet!

So far this month, I have made a few cards that I am including in this post (I will post a few more later).

The first card was made for a co-worker whose sorority colors are pink & green. I figured the bold design of this card would be right up her alley.

I used the Recollections Femme Fatale stack. I am really starting to like using some of the big & bold prints on my printed paper/cardstock to make my cards pop. Because there really wasn't much white in the print, I wanted to minimize the amount of white I used on the outside of the card... I used some fuchsia ribbon from my stash and a few small fuchsia brads to highlight my sentiment.

The second card was for a male co-worker and I always have a hard time creating for men. For this card, I found inspiration in a previous design.

For this one, I used some paper from a kit I won from Scraps Of Color. I cut the circles with my Fiskars Circle Cutter, choosing four different sizes. The first card I made in this design was a few years ago & came from one of my paper crafting magazines (sorry, can't remember which one). Here it is:

Hope you enjoyed the cards! Be sure to comment on this post for an extra chance to win (win what, you ask??? click here for more details)


  1. Love your cards. I always have a hard time with masculine cards too. Great job.
