Birthday Cards

We have so many family birthdays in April that making cards for them all has kept me quite busy! So here are a couple of examples of cards that I have been making.

First is a 50th Birthday card for my husband who was born on St Georges Day and is quite proud of the fact! The knight, castle, princess and castle wall are all from a set of Woodware stamps that Scrapbook Sisters ordered in for me. The gold 50 was cut on the Cricut, the shield I cut myself and the dragon was cut from a St Georges Day card!

The second card was for my sons 19th Birthday. It was taken from an idea that I saw in Making Cards magazine and I have used an image from a comic book and downloaded an image of a brick wall. I love these big Happy Birthday peel offs they look great on a bigger card.


I made this birthday card for my nephew using one of my favourite House Mouse stamps which I have had for many years but gets used again and again, the backing paper is Basic Grey and the image is coloured with Copics.......but then I realised that it was actually his 30th Birthday this year, so...........

.........I made this one instead! I used Woodware Chippies as templates for the 30 and the frame shape and cut the stars on my trusty Cricut, the backing papers are Doodlebug glittered cardstock and Basic Grey.
