Birthday Series

My neighbor asked me to make 5 birthday cards for her recently. They were going to three guys and two gals, one of which was turning 90! She said they were well received ... actually I think she said everyone thought they were "interesting." Hmmmm .... I think I'll take that as a compliment. Anyway here are the first three.

It might be a little hard to tell but the front flap of this card is about one inch shorter than the back flap and I added a little margin of black for emphasis. And NO, I did not totally mess up the placement of the sentiment on the front and end up cutting it off in a last ditch effort to salvage the card. Why do you ask?

Deets: All stamps and ribbon by A Muse. All paper, glitter and ink by Stampin' Up! Stardust gel pen and quickie glue pen by Sakura.

I love how this card turned out but I am not sure that grumps SCREAMS birthday. I hope the recipient enjoyed it.

Deets: All stamps by Stamping Bella. All paper and ink by Stampin' Up! Punches by marvy. Stardust gel pen by sakura and ribbon by ????

My neighbor wanted "funny" cards. Yeah ... I don't have a lot of stamps that scream Shoebox but I thought this one sorta worked. Funny, punny, whatever!

Deets: All stamps by A Muse. All paper by SU and Basic Gray. All ink, glitter and ribbon by SU. Punches by marvy and SU. Quickie glue pen by sakura.

I hope you enjoyed these cards. Does anyone want to come over tonight and help me crank out 30 or so moving announcements??? Anyone? No one??? Ha ha ha! I'll be sure to post that moving card tomorrow. I like the layout now but after all this mass production I have the feeling I'm not going to be quite so fond tomorrow.
