Today is my daughter's birthday! Holy cow, where has the time gone? Any of you mom's out there feel the same way I do when birthday's roll around? I start thinking about the day she was born and all the time in between and then I think how fast it has gone by. I get so darn sentimental I just want to cry!
Well, enough of that! Here are a couple of cards I made for her using more of the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and the gorgeous Basic Grey Lemonade collection. I absolutely love the colors in this collection and thought they would be perfect for a summer birthday!
Sweet by GenCraft (Floren)
For this card I used the Cuttlebug Once Upon A Princess Set. After all, my daughter firmly believes she is a princess! LOL! The card is the full 5x7. I usually don't make 5x7 cards, but it worked perfectly with the flower from the Basic Grey Lemonade Element Stickers! Before I applied the sticker, I ran some chalk over the raised cupcakes to help them stand out a bit. I added in some bling to the flower sticker and that's it!
16 by GenCraft (Floren)
I used the same Cuttlebug Embossing Set for this card. I made this card 5x5 and added in some layers with different Basic Grey Lemonade papers. I ran some chalk over the embossed butterflies to bring them out. The sticker border under the '16' is from the Basic Grey Lemonade Element Stickers. I added some Stickles to the '16' and now I have another quick card!
