Button Birthday Card

Hi all! A super quick post today, sharing the card I made this morning. This will be an easy card to make in different colors and probably using different shapes too. For this card, I got four pieces of patterned paper that are 1½" x 1½" from my scrap pile and I used my corner rounder to round two of the corners of each pieces on the opposite sites. That's how I got the 'leaf' shapes. Then, I embellished the card with two cute yellow buttons on each of the green papers and finished it off with the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment along with a little gold brad. The final card measures 4¼" x 5½". I really love this color combo and want to make more cards using these colors.

Enjoy and have a great week ahead! :)

Good Luck!

Hi there! Happy Friday to you all. It's been a while since I last posted cards here. Well, I finally have one to share. Actually, I have had many cards to share but just not enough time for me to photograph and post. I am trying my best to be a better 'crafty blogger'! Hence, I decided to participate in some craft challenges. I came across this Freshly Made Sketches blog with full of super cool sketches. I am totally inspired by their sketches. Below is the sketch that inspired me! Next, is my creation using this sketch.

I love the sketch by Lesley Croghan. The first thing that came to my mind was these colorful clouds. Of course there are a lot of possibilities...but I thought this idea of using cloud shapes would be even more attractive...and that's how I came up with this fresh and cheery good luck card.
Hope you enjoyed viewing my creation. I'll be back soon with another creation to share with you all. Thanks!

Seesaw Birthday Card

Woah!~ Here is another beach themed birthday card with bits that move! The request was pretty simple - a birthday card with two loving sea turtles. So, I tried to make a card with something moves for ages...and I just got the seesaw idea! I did a little experiment using some scrap cardstock before making the actual card.

It's a bit fiddly to do...but, had fun while making this card. I made two quilled turtles...seesawing, a colorful beach ball and I simply sketched a sand castle on a kraft cardstock and used it as the base card. Well it's not an easy peasy card...but it's unique!

Thanks and have a great day! :)
