Birthday Cards

Well I still haven't made any new cards as I am still not home but I thought I would share some cards I made to bring with me for family members.

This card was for our great neice.  The backing paper and the birthday time ribbon is from the Daisy and Dandelions cd by Docrafts, as is the rabbit topper.  The top half of the card is made from light printable card from Crafters Companion, which I have embossed.  I cut the number 5 using my Craft Robo and more backing paper from Daisy and Dandelion and used a plain pink card to outline it and also for the letters for the name which were cut using my Craft Robo.

The second card is also made using the Daisy and Dandelion cd by Docrafts.  I printed the backing paper and also the sentiment direct onto the cardbase .  I then printed the topper separately, cut it out and stuck it onto the base.  The bit that took the longest with this card was actually choosing what to do in the first place!

This card was also made using a cd - Cuddleupz Cards, Funny Farm by Peerless Designs.  It is a gate fold card and the two sides link together when closed.  As usual I forgot to photograph the inside of the card, which has the reverse side of each image on.  The images were printed onto photographic paper and stuck to the card both front and inside.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
