Dual Birthday Cards


Today I have a couple birthday cards made with the same design, but using different colors and papers. I love this Darice swirl die and paired it with some Lawn Fawn polka dot dsp, creating a little tag done with a SU! note tag punch, and added a heat-embossed birthday sentiment with white on black, then stamped the smaller sentiments with black on the Bermuda Bay tag. I added some tiny circles done with a Poppy holly and berries die set and a little snippet of twine to the tag finished this off. I find I can make 2 cards just as easily as one when they're the same design, but I use different colors to mix them up.


Here it is with some gold cardstock and coordinating dsp, The snippets are from my stash and the twine is by Lawn Fawn.

I'm entering these into the following challenges:

Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - birthday celebration


Thanks for checking in and I hope your Wednesday is just perfect!

I agree with you on the beauty of this Darice swirl, its fabulous and also big enough to be the central piece of a card. I have had two diecuts from you times ago and I'm in love with them. I have to buy this die! :D
Your cards are both adorable, love your simple design, it's very effective!

This is a super card design and it looks equally good in both colour ways. The die cut flourish is lovely and makes a great focal point.

Clever 2-fer and my, did the change up of colors make each card look very different. Loving the design, and this is a most versatile little flourish. Also like the little 'buttons' beneath that cute sentiment tag. TFS & Hugs

Gosh how different they both look just by changing the colour ways around. My money is on the first one though which just has the edge for me. Hugs Mrs a.

Great cards! I love making 2 or 3 cards at the same time too. It really helps build up the stash that way. I change up the sentiments too.

Two super cards Carol. I absolutely love the layout and couldn't choose my favourite colourway. They're both so pretty. Barbxx.

Two fabulous cards!! That swirl die is beautiful and since it's from Darice, I know it's affordable. I'm going to have to check that one out! The little sentiment tag is adorable and finished off both cards perfectly! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
