Two B-day cards

So February is my birthmonth and two people share my birthday whom I am close to. This one was for my best friend. I just stamped a tree put hearts in it for leaves and a small bird. I rolled grass along the bottom with a wheel stamp and made heart flowers in the grass with a small heart stamp. Pretty simple.
This one is for my niece. A cupcake mounted on apricot paper and tied with a pink ribbon. Stamped some hearts around.
Open it up and its a pop up! this is done by using a word window punch to make to slits in the card. You then fold that inner portion of the card between the two slits inward. Glue another mounted stamped paper to it and volia pop up card. the apricot paper on the front folds over to the back of the card covering the slits. I learned this from my buddy Julie A.

Girl Birthday Card

This was for a friend's daughter. The papers are all from DCWV Spring 2007 stack. The flowers are white cardstock I punched with a paper puncher (the daisies along the top are just two flower punches layered together).

The stamp is from a Stampendous word stamp set, and is stamped in white chalk ink and touched up with a white paint pen.

The top stripe is accented with white satin ribbon. The dashes on the bottom strip were made with a white paint pen. The center of the flowers were made using the same paper as the strips and a normal hole punch.
