Birthdays Galore

This week has been a very busy week.  Lots of folks are having birthdays around me and one couple is getting married.  So congrats to everyone, no matter what the occasion.

My first card is for a friend who is 50 next week.  He is in a band, and obviously loves music .....

I made the trifold card from a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock.  The numbers were cut on the Cricut, using the shadow facility.  The papers and tags are all from Bo Bunny Et Cetera Range.  I love this range.  The stickers are also from it.  I have included three song lines/titles on the card .......... hope he likes it.  As always I used good old Timmy to distress the edges.

This is an order for a friend her Mil is gonna be 65.  This card is from the girls to their Nanny.  The brief was sunset/autumnal colours.  Again the card is a 12 x 12 piece from stock, the papers are a mixture of First Edition ......... Leaves, DCWV Marriposa, shimmer card and green card from stock.
The tag was hand cut, the peel offs are from Anitas, including the ones used to make the dimensional butterflies.  The Bows are all papermania and the heart button is from stash.

This card is for my daughter's friend Pia.  Her Mum is getting married and she asked me to make a special card.  I am totally in love with all things Steampunk at the moment and Pia also likes this style.  I have used a Kanban topper, and First Edition papers.  The papers and have been cut and punched using a Woodware punching system, then layered to create the effect.  Inside I have printed a verse and then matted and layered the hearts punched out to give the border down the page.

This gorgeous card and matching handmade envelope are for the same lady who is gonna be 65.  This is from her Son and Dil.  The letters were cute from Papermania cardstock and matted and layered using the shadow effect on the cricut.  They were then put together and the back of the card made at 13" plus hinge.  The letters were then applied to the front of the hinge and then acetate was added to strengthen the front.  The Decoupage is from Papermania Lucy Cromwell collection, as are the die cuts inside the card.  The papers are from Boofle.  

Hope you like these.
