I was treated to a fabulous dinner and a fresh bakery treat by my daughter and boyfriend and beautiful flowers from a friend for my birthday.

I promptly made these cards to mail today.
 (Just realized I forgot rhinestones in the flowers on the above card.
Inside each card has a die cut Thank You in corresponding colors. (One version shown below)

Birthday Aperture swirl vine accents

Wanted to make a vine like card for my sister's birthday this week.
I cut an aperture with my Circle Scissors and embossed the front of the card.
With a Quikutz thinlets die I die cut random swirls and glued them in place to act as vines for the butterflies.

Inside I layered some very old patterned paper and included one more butterfly and the Tim Holtz happy birthday sentiment die set which i have been using all week!
 Another quick birthday card!

Wide flower laced top birthday card

My son mentioned tonight he was off to a celebratory birthday dinner to his best friend's girl friend.
I couldn't resist giving a card for him to give to Candi.

Base card black, I used a wide flower border punch from MS to accent the top of the card.
Added a scrap piece of card stock from my stash (love the paper!), added 3 butterflies and little pearls (black, white, pink).

Inside I wanted another butterfly however I made it pop up inside. Not sure you can see it.


Sentiment from SU.


Center pop out birthday card

Made this quick card for Judy at work, her birthday was on the 13th, but I didn't see her till today
The base of the card is 4 1/4" x 11 scored at 2 and 3 1/4" on both ends.
 
I added a couple patterned paper to the outside panels.

The lace oval is from a Spellbinders die that I forgot I bought and tried it out. The die cut nicely however used wax paper and ran through twice to make sure everything cut and released.

Sentiment from Tim Holtz. Nice quick card. Think I'll use this unique fold again :)

Cheers beer mug birthday card

John's birthday is today so I created this earlier in the week and mailed it on Tuesday. Post office should be able to get this there in 3 days considering its 25 miles away.
Any ways created the mug with a 3 x 4 paper
The sides of the mug are 3 1" x 4" pieces that I've corner rounded.
Used Cuttlebug bubbles embossing folder to be the beer.
Tim Holtz sentiment 
The foam of beer at the top are 2 different circles inked.
 All in all, petty cute card.

Corner flip card

Saw this type of cut on YouTube and just had to try it
 Take traditional card however on the front you put it in your trimmer at 3" and place your cutting blade at the 5/8" mark and cut down to the 3" mark.
Turn the card to the inside (traditional opening and make the cut again.
 Flip the wedge you sliced down and you get the corner flip. Add a bit of adhesive to keep the flip down to the base. The pattern paper is 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
The leaves are a die set from Lawn Fawn, and the Thank you sentiment dies are from Tim Holtz

Celebrate die card

Got this die in a surprise pack. Of the purchase price for the "surprise" box, not many dies I liked but thought I would give this a go.
Base card is yellow card stock and I placed two different colors behind the bottom flags. Raised the blue cardstock on foam.
Kinda cute for either male or female birthday card.
