Two Birthday Cards

After looking at and admiring a lot of tall/narrow cards shared by so many card makers recently, I decided to give it a go as well…I tried out a vertical layout as well as a horizontal one…the card size is 3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″ for both cards…and I haven’t tried it yet but this should fit a business envelope(a DL size for Australia)

My first card is a fairy birthday card made using Stamping Bella cling stamp set called Little Bits Fairy and Kelly Alpha lower case die set from Pinkfresh Studio….I have used Distress inks with MFT mini cloud stencil to create the background panel…and to complete the sentiment, I added two white heat embossed labels above the die cut word…

I have also added tiny pink stars all over the card to embellish it..

For my second card, I first stamped and heat embossed a lot of leaf images from Altenew Freeform Greenery stamp set …I coloured them in using alcohol markers and the die cut them with the coordinating dies…I added these leaves to the bottom of the front panel..

Using some red cardstock, I die cut the word ‘happy’ using the Altenew Caps Bold Alpha dies….I added some glitter ad then some nuvo glaze on these die cuts…I stamped and heat embossed the word ‘birthday’ from Mega Greetings 2 stamp set and adhered it to complete the sentiment…

I wasn’t able to take a good picture of this card as the Nuvo glaze was extremely reflective…

I did enjoy making these cards….I think this is a great size to use for a bit of variation every now and then…

Thanks so much for stopping by today…have a wonderful, happy and craft day today..
