Birthday card

I came to my blog and realized that several scheduled posts did not publish!  Oops.

But that's okay.  One of the scheduled posts was a birthday card that I decided not to give out to my nephew, because I've made another one more awesome!

The new Lawn Fawn goodies are so popular that it took a long time for my order to arrive.  I'm glad that I finally get to play with them and it is literally just in time for my nephew's birthday.

The pop-up card is certainly fun to make, and it's just as fun to color the astronaut and planets.  I hope my nephew likes it as much as I like making it.

Did you know that Lawn Fawn has started its own challenge? You can find the details here.  I look forward to participating in more of its challenges!

Thank You

I am sharing a Thank You card today.  Check it out to see if you can find a boo-boo:

What do you think?

If you look at the green slope, You'll see two layers.  The bottom layer has the stitched details while the front does not.  What happened was that when I ran the die on the paper, I put the die in the wrong direction, so the part with the stitched details was too small to ground the bunny and that's the last small piece of green patterned paper.......

Time to be creative!  So I layered those two pieces, the front one doesn't have the details but the details from the bottom one will peak through.  Not too bad, right?  This card will go to my co-worker, who is not a crafter, so I guess she won't notice the difference. :p

Birthday card again

This time I'm sharing a birthday card for a one-year old.  Little James turned one!  Time flies.

The stamp set Party Animal from Lawn Fawn is always a wonderful helper in making birthday cards.  Here, I only needed this one stamp set that has all images to make this card.  I like that I could use the small images to create a subtle background like it is some patterned paper.  I added a star shaped die cut as the focal point for the bear and the birdy.  Finally I cut out a banner for the greeting.

This card came together at no time, which was awesome as I was running late to his party. :p

Birthday card

I have a few birthday parties to go to in March so I'm whipping up birthday cards.  Many of them are guys so they will challenge my creativity!

I started making one for Carlos, a soon-to-be 89 years old.  Wow.  I have seen him many times over the years at parties or celebration but I never knew his age.  I couldn't believe he is approaching 89!  He is definitely young at heart!

I decided to make a cute card for him, using some new Lawn Fawn goodies!  I love pinked circles so I have to have this new zig zag circle stackables.  The Happy die is fun and super versatile too!  And I just can't get enough the birdies from love letters.  Absolutely fun and easy for making quick cards.

So I got one done.  Tomorrow I'm going to my friend's son's 1 year old party.  Need to make another one now!

Seize the Birthday - Birthday
Inky Chicks - birthday
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes

Have a great weekend and happy crafting!
