Butterfly banner birthday card

I have 3 birthday events to go through, this is the second one is made last night.
All punches and sentiment from SU.

I hand cut the banner.
I ran each element as well as the base card through various embossing folders.

13 birthday card

I made this for Elizabeth who is having a birthday on the 6th.
 Embossed both layers with the Cuttlebug bubbles folder.
Die cut Happy for the front and Birthday for the inside from a Sizzix die.
To make the 13 I used very old metal dies from Provo Craft. I used sewing thread to dangle them.
The stars is a SU punch.

Simple note card

I made this card with spare / leftovers from another card.
The tree is a beautiful die from Spellbinders and by using freezer paper/parchment  (which is a trick to help release the cut from the die)  between the die and cardstock I couldn't just throw away the delicate cut.
Using liquid glue, I glued it to the card base and added a SU border punch to the bottom.

LOVE marque sign picture frame

Got all the supplies at Michaels Craft store.
Cut scrapbook paper to fit the 18 x 15 frame. Painted in distress grey paint. I catefully wrapped string lights around the letters.
I used foam squares to raise the letters off the scrapbook paper background.
To accommodate the battery pack I used my Crop-a-Dial to punch a hole in the side of thd back mdf panel to hide it in the back.

Vintage layers bridal shower card

Here's a card I gave to my friend's son fiance yesterday at a lovely bridal shower.
The card was made with all Stampin Up supplies and would be great and quick to make a stack of these with different sentiments.
Luckily I made this months ago and it was in my stash. I found out later the wedding colors are purple with a hint of yellow. I'll now have to make a whole new wedding card (wedding is less than 2 months away)

Lego birthday card

This was something I wanted to try and make, I didn't have the right punches but I think I made it work for a special birthday card.
I punch three layers of dots and glued tgem together and then inked each dot.
Glued each grouping of dots on a raised and inked square.
