SO, the fall birthdays continue! I shared George's card with you last time, and today I want to show you Jan's and Sue's cards. (This is your SECOND SPOILER ALERT, Sue and Jan!! Go watch some puppy videos or something!)
For Jan, I made this--
I stamped some leaves with lots of color onto the sentiment, and then trimmed and rounded three corners. I also used my glitter pen to highlight "hey girl" and "two". The inside has some personal stuff, but ends up saying "Happy Birthday". Duh.
I layered a strip of teal card stock onto my swiss dot embossed baseto highlight the sentiment a bit, and then added a small piece of striped dp, also with rounded edges to the back of the sentiment. I added a leaf punched with my leaf punch, and then adhered the whole thing with foam tape to give it some lift.
I cut a small slit in the fold of the card to allow the ribbon to slide through, then added a dry embossed circle on top. I lined up some leaves and adhered them with foam tape. Orange rhinestones finish it all up.
For Sue, I did this--
I punched some leaves from scraps of DP, creased them down the middle to make them have more movement, and tucked them under the rick-rack, lifting them off the surface with some foam tape.
The sentiment is also popped off the surface, and highlighted with a white brad and some orange rhinestones.
The pumpkins are in blue ink on some orange dp, and I did my usual cutting thing where I leave some space around the image, rather than "fussy cutting" it.
Pop the whole thing onto an orange card base, and you're set!
This one is really pretty easy, but the effect is something much more busy and detailed.
So, these are my fall birthday cards. Hope you found some inspiration!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
