Bright Birthday Cards & Winners



With our weather so horrible today (about a foot of snow!) I wanted to make some BRIGHT cards!! I love this chipboard accordian card. The front and the back are from the SU! Onboard Chipboard set. I covered both pieces with paper from a 6x6 paper pad I found at AC Moore last weekend called Salsa Junk Padz - this one is nice and bright and has a great birthday theme to it. The little printed sayings are all from one of the pages of the pad, I simply trimmed them down and mounted them on the pages of my card.

I designed the "H" in Happy on my own and did some faux stitching around it. The rest of the "appy" letters are from SU! - I'm drawing a blank on what the name of the set is though. I used Sweet Baby Jane from Green Grass stamps for the Birthday on the last page. The last page flips up to reveal a space for writing your own sentiment. If you click on the pictures it will open in a larger window so you can get a closeup of the sentiments.

The second card was for today's challenge on SCS I used Not Quite Navy from SU as my base, then layered striped Basic Grey paper over the top 2 triangles. Top image is a layer of white, a yellow scalloped circle punch, then a large chipboard start that is was faux stitched with white gel pen. I added an 11 (because my youngest will be 11 soon...) and colored it with green chalk in and green stickles. The inside can be seen on my SCS gallery

Both such totally fab cards, but I choose the tag card because of the design. You've been making such fun cards! Also...CONGRATS on the DD. So happy to see you there.

That would be a tough decision....I guess I would say the tag card. Just something about it... : )

Adam and Courtney said...

I love both of these cards... hard to choose, but I think I'm going to go with the second one. They are both great, love all the colors - but the second one is more "me".

I sent you a email w/ my info. Thanks again for the chance to "play".

Ho-Ly-Cow! That Happy Birthday accordion card is amazing!! Great work!

Allison said...

Love that trifold...I guess because I have the papers and could CASE it!

marlo said...

Love them both...how do I choose? You make this difficult on us. LOL

I guess...if I had to choose...hmmm, it would be numero dos!! #2

I like the way the star pops. The stripes and colors make it stand out. Awesome job!

Amy said...

WOW! I love both of these, but I guess the 2nd card is my favorite because I tried one of those yesterday too! I love them, they're so easy! Every one of these colors is my favorite! So bright and cheery!

Cathy said...

Definitely #2! Loved the stripes.

Chris Hauck said...

Wow these are both great cards but I think my favorite is #1. It does however look like it took a long time to put together. I would be curious to know how long it took.
I do also love #2. I love all the layers on the front. Thanks for sharing.

Hmmm ... they are both so great. The star #11 is perfect for a kids birthday and I might have to use that idea one day. But I think my favorite would be #1 - I just love accordion tag cards.

Julie said...

Both these cards are fabulous!! So bright and cheery! Love them!

I like card number 2 myself, but both are wonderful!

It's a good life!

Both of these cards are great! But I like the first one the best ... because it is a tag card (cute, cute, cute), and I love the saying! You do fabulous work!

Once again you nout did yourself.I love card one.I think I'll have to try this one.

Ida said...

I love bright & cheery and both these cards are just that. I'm drawn though to the Tag card & especially love the paper & the sentiment. They really go well together. Ida

Cathy W. said...

What a tough decision as they are both favulous cards! I'd have t say #1 as it's so detailed and I could look at it for ages and not see everything that's going on. Congrats on being a dirty girl. You are so deserving!

mnhyrkas said...

I'm gonna vote #2. I love your layered geometric shapes!

I'm loving the second card - probably because I'm in a square card phase right now.... They're both beautiful and fun!

Kheila said...

Your creativity always just amazes me! I LOVE that tag card! Can you image getting that in the mail? It would surely be the most incredible birthday card ever!!!

Linda Shaw said...

Your creations are amazing. I like your second birthday card the best as it seems more age appropriate for an eleven year old. Linda SS

Michele said...
