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!
