Birthday Cards


I  wanted to create a card using this Darice Swirl Vine die cut that I've had in my doo-dad box for a while now. I pulled out a Doodlebug paper pad and found 2 snippets of DSP I liked, and put it all together with a SU! note tag punch. I paired the papers with Bermuda Blue cardstock, stamping the greeting with 3 different SU! sets, and heat-embossing the word "birthday" in white on another black snippet. I added a couple of large white embellishments I received in a blog candy package, and added a black brad to the image panel. I had another one of these die cut swirls, so I decided to make a 2nd card using some Lawn Fawn papers.


This one was made using the same design, but I added 2 SU! punched flowers with a tiny aqua gemstone in the center. The birthday sentiment is from SNSS and the ribbon is Berry Sorbet from PTI.

That's 2 more birthday cards I can add to my stash, and I've used a lot of snippets at the same time. Win win!

I'm heading over to the Snippets Playground #223 to share.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day!

Carol

I can't decide which of these I like best! Love the design on both of them, but the different paper colors sure changes it up a lot. Yay for you on excellent use of the flourish snippet. You always come up a winner! TFS & happy week ahead. Hope none of those winds knocked out your power! Hugs

Both cards are terrific but I'm favouring the first due to the wonderful colour scheme.
