Happiness is a handmade card



Two birthday cards

Hi everyone! I've got two birthday cards to show today.

This one is for my brother's birthday. I used ink smooshing behind a MFT die, popped the panel up on foam pads and added some MFT balloons in a contrasting colour.


Heavyweight 300gsm white card stock

My Favorite Things Happy Birthday to You die
My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday stamp and die set

Foam pads

This one is for my uncle's birthday. He enjoys gardens and gardening, so I used that as my theme but went for a clean feel and contemporary colour scheme in silvers and greys.
