Birthdays Galore!

It's been a busy time recently - lots of April birthday, and lots more in May.  The following cards are a few that I made for last month.
This first card was made for a good friend of mine who celebrated a milestone birthday.  I cut an oval in the middle of the card and pierced around the outside of the aperture and the edge of the card with a piercing template.  I attached a piece of green Twitterpated DSP behind the aperture.  I cut some chipboard numbers and coated them in Martha Stewart glitter and attached them to the DSP.  A Teeny Tiny sentiment and punched out labels in white and Pear Pizzazz completed the card.

This next card was made with a scrap booking kit that I have had knocking around for years and thought I ought to start using!  It was a card made in a hurry for the little boy next door.

An finally, another card made from a pad of scrap booking papers.  Actually I used offcuts from Emily's birthday album, to use them up.  The card was for a 14 year old girl and I hope I pitched it correctly - it's a funny old age, 14!

Hopefully I will be back soon with some more cards.  Because I have a lot of birthdays in May, I've gone in for some batch making sessions, and revisiting an old design.  But I do have something new to show you that I am very proud of - so watch this space!
See you soon.  Take care

  1. These are lovely, Michelle. I love the 50 card and I'm not even keen on glitter! I'm a bit like you atm, I've several birthdays in May plus I've been asked to have a stall at a craft fayre in July but it's a brilliant way to use up my dsp, so I'm going for it, even if it means a bit of batch making.

  2. These are fabulous Michelle! I love them all but being a bit of a CAS girl at heart, the 50 card is my favourite - love the piercing and the glittery numbers. Very excited about your new project and can't wait to see! You will be missed this weekend but hope we'll be able to get together soon. Vicky x
