Birthday Cards

Hi all, I have been crafting away here making birthday cards for some of my favorite kiddos.  I tried to make cards that fit the personalities and likes of the kids.  I hope you enjoy!!

This first card is made with three cartridges.  The Robot is from the Wrap it Up cartridge.  This little guy is very detailed and so takes some time to put on all the parts, definitely needed to use the tweezers for this one.  The balloons are made with the Birthday Bash cartridge and the present border is made with the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge that came with my Gypsy.

This next card was made using two cartridges.  The birthday bee and balloons are made using the Birthday Bash cartridge.  The bee wasn't as detailed as the robot, but still took some time.  The grass border was made using the Plantain Schoolbook cartridge.  I really love the birthday saying that came with the bee.  The little guy I made this for loves bugs and has recently been stung by several bees!!!

This last card was made using three cartridges.  The dressy lady was done with the Forever Young cartridge.  The balloons are again from the Birthday Bash Cartridge and the Happy Birthday phrase is from the Gypsy Font cartridge.  As you can see I really love using all kinds of patterned paper.  I got to use a new product on the card to do the glitter word Diva.  I used a foiling pen and glitter stack that I found at the GASC.  I really love how easy it was to write on the card and make it come to life with the glitter.  You can view the product here.  I am not selling the product just wanted to share.

Hope you enjoy these cards.  It is back to crafting for me as I have a few projects that I need to complete before I am off on vacation.
