embossing birthdays

I had 3 birthday cards that I needed done this week- all for little people! I think you can guess their ages! :) I got out the cuttlebug folder & went to town! I used CM red cardstock & PTI pink blush cardstock. I highlighted the year with dimensional glaze, and since it didn't show much on the pink one, topped it off with prismapens. Some ribbon from my stash on the red cards, as well as nesties 'frames'. And the new eksuccess border punch really looked great on the '7' card!

The paper strip is from the paper stack I got in Poulsbo 'divine'. Button from my stash. And that crocheted flower? I made it. Yep. I know, I can't believe it either- but isn't it adorable? :)
I also did some loose stitching on this one, & PTI vintage tea around the edges.

That's it for now- better get them mailed!!! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Veeery sweet flower. You did a great job.I like the looks of that thread a lot.It has a cotton feel (look) to it. Love the numbered cards too. It just spit on us at the fair, not much at all.

  2. That's so clever to highlight the background for the appropriate age! Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog -- I appreciate it!

  3. Jen these are so cute! How clever are those BGs??? The stitching on the pink one is great and that flower is the perfect touch. Lovely cards all around.

  4. These are great! What a wonderful, quick and easy way to make a bunch of cards!


I appreciate you taking the time to come by- and your comments make my day! Thank you!!
