Two Happy Birthday Cards for a Happy Monday
Hello, everyone! It’s a drizzly, grey Monday here in my neck of the woods, but it’s off to a productive start! The kitchen is clean, coffee is made, emails are answered, and now I’m writing a blog post to share a couple of cards with you. Hopefully these Happy Birthday cards will help you have a Happy Monday!
This first card was fun and simple to make. Picking out the papers was probably the hardest part! I cut the blue background paper down to size, ran the white paper through my Cuttlebug in my “Swiss Dots” embossing folder, and layered them together with a silver brad in each corner. Then, I fashioned the cake. The brown layer is my favorite – I used one of my punches to create a decorative edge. I didn’t get a great picture of the dimension, but each layer of cake has a rounded appearance; I did this by raising the center of each piece with a foam square, and then gluing the edges down. Subtle and fun! I stamped and embossed the sentiment, added a couple brads and some bakers twine, and adhered it with foam squares. Easy peezy! You might even say it was a piece of cake! Buh-dum-chhhh!
This second card was even easier to create. First, I die cut the card base. After running it through the machine, I left the die in place and sponged ink onto the card, creating a clean white border. Then, I die cut more of the same shape in burlap, blue, and white. I stamped and embossed the sentiment, added brads, and layered everything together. Again, easy peezy.
Well, that’s it for today! I hope these cards helped brighten up your Monday a bit 🙂 Have a lovely day!
