Another Birthday Card?

The card theme I use the most is Birthday.  It seems like there is always someone I know celebrating another year and I need a birthday card for them.  When I color an image or create a card design I really like, I try to make duplicates to keep on hand.  Adding some variation to the card layout helps me create additional cards.

Fellow designer, April Williams, recently celebrated a birthday so I needed to make her a card.  I wanted to use the Three Delightful Cupcakes image so I stamped it with Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers. 

After adding glitter to the cupcakes, this was layered on  some designer birthday paper, along with The Best Things in Life... sentiment.  Fun and easy, and perfect for a man, woman, or child.

I really liked how the cupcakes came out and still had some of the designer paper so I created a 2nd card.  I needed a card for a  a sketch 

so decided to combine both.

I used all the same colors but changed the layout to match the sketch, added some ribbon, and used the ...cupcake kind of day sentiment.

Which card is your favorite?

  1. What a great set of cards Marie! The spring colors are so fresh and fun and I love the background paper you used!

  2. Great cards and what cute cupcakes! You are like me. I like to make more than one card at a time but I can’t bring myself to make them exactly the same!

  3. So pretty, Marie! I love my card!

  4. I never would have thought about making a custom birthday card. How wonderful!
