Special Birthday Wishes

Meljen's Designs have a wonderful freebie digi this weekend - 'Topsy Turvy Birthday Cake' which is perfect for so many birthdays I have upcoming. 
I'm always striving to create new and exciting projects rather than simply folded greetings cards, so for this I decided to create a hanging birthday 'card', which can be folded up to post then hung as a decoration and used over and over again. 

I've used the following materials to create this project:
  • Card from my stash
  • Dovecraft twine
  • Promarkers - Canary, Mango, Bright Orange, Cerise, Lime Green, Turquoise, Arctic Blue, Cobalt Blue & Purple




I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:

Grats Cupcake

I love making congratulations cards as they can be used for so many different occasions. I think it's one of the most versatile sentiments, so it's always good to have one to hand. 
MelJen's Designs 'Grats Cupcake' is the latest addition to my growing collection of digital images, so it was the perfect choice for this card. I've added dimension to the cupcake by decoupaging some elements, plus lots of texture with heat & dry embossing and the burlap.

I have used the following materials to create this card:

  • Papermania card
  • Buttons, burlap & twine from my stash
  • Patterned paper from Crafter's Companion
  • Sizzix Argyll embossing folder
  • Tim Holtz Kraft-Kore card by Core'dinations
  • Cosmic Shimmer extra thick clear embossing crystals 
  • Promarkers - Oatmeal, Soft Peach, Dusky Pink, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Turquoise, Amethyst, Purple & Aubergine

Nuts About Each Other

Wedding season is here, so I wanted to make a humorous card, rather than the usual soppy, pretty cards you see in the shops.  I love this 'Nuts About Couple' image from Bugaboo Stamps as it's so different to anything else.  It also comes with sentiments, but I've created my own to change it up a bit. 

I've used the following materials to create this card:

  • Papermania card
  • Crafty Devils pearls
  • Whispers ink
  • Core'dinations Glittersilk card
  • Embossalicious embossing folder 'Floral Frenzy'
  • ProMarkers - Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Raw Sienna, Cool Grey 2, 3 & 4, Black, Arctic Blue, Lipstick Red, Berry Red, Crimson



I also made a custom version as a groom card for someone. It looks so different in these colours!
