Happy Birthday Cards

Hello everyone.  Today I am participating in an Anniversary Blog Hop with Crackerbox and Suzy stamps.

I've used this amazing Happy Birthday stamp and created 3 different cards.

For my first card, I wanted a feminine birthday card so I started by painting watercolor paints on a sheet of watercolor paper.  Cutting the paper to size, I embossed it with a Happy Birthday embossing folder and lightly inked over the embossed words.  The birthday phrase was also stamped on this paper with black ink.

The embossed panel was matted with pink cardstock then added to a brown card.  Ribbon and white was wrapped around the card, then the phrase was die cut and matted with 2 layers beforing being added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  Nuvo drops were scattered around the card.

My next card is a stark contrast in orange and white.  

I started with a white card that was die cut along the bottom edge.  A panel of orange was also die cut then added atop the white card.  

Orange twine was wrapped around the card.

The birthday phrase was stamped in 3 colors of VersaFine Clair inks, die cut and then matted with brown cardstock.  Foam adhesives were added to pop the phrase.

And finally, I had some left over papers I created with Brushos so I made a third card.  

I wanted a really bright card so I used this panel and embossed it with the same Birthday embossing folder I used in card #1.  Then I lightly ran over the embossed words with a light brown ink.

The birthday phrase was stamped in black ink on white cardstock.  The black and white panels were  die cut with Lawn Fawn dies and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Inside I added this snarky statement which I think is perfect for someone special, don't you?
