Naturally Eclectic Happy Birthday

Sweet & Simple — that’s what today’s card is with a surprise fold.  I used the Naturally Eclectic designer paper — there are some fabulous prints in this designer paper package.  The pretty script Happy Birthday comes from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and the adorable added touch is the Basic Pack 2 Washi Tape.  This stuff is fabulous.  The Basic Pack 2 Washi Tape has 5 different shades of the green and they are all easy patterns to use.

Masculine Note Card

I was recently asked if I had any masculine cards on hand.  I dug through my card stash and only found a few.  Hmm….it’s time to make a few masculine cards to have on hand — not necessarily birthday just general cards that could be used for any occasion for those guys in our lives.  So here’s the first card I designed.  I used the stamp set Wood Words.  It’s has wonderful rustic images and a few short sweet phrases.  It was the perfect fit with the Wood Textures designer paper.  If you haven’t purchased that yet, you really need too — it is amazing.

Happy Birthday to You

I love bright, cheery colors — here we have Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist.  Aren’t they great!!  This card just makes me smile.  The Happy Birthday Thinlit and the Celebration Thinlits are the main focus here.  The background stamp is from Work of Art — isn’t that sweep off color fun.  Don’t forget the little “to you” in the lower corner — that wonderful script stamp comes from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp.
