Our siblings conspired to have all their babies in a 30-day span in June and July. It seems that I continually have baby presents and cards to make! But they're all so cute, I don't mind.
Here are the birthday cards that I made this year. The girls' cards are a very feminine, but not necessarily "baby-ish." I wanted to do something that would be different than their other cards.
Lily's birthday comes first. She's my sister's headstrong, adorable 2-year-old.
The background paper is K&Co Madelaine. I love this collection. It's so pink, flirty, French, and feminine. I used my Martha Stewart doily punch on the edge. I added a paper strip that I randomly folded and adhered in a circle to a chipboard base. The I layered on a couple of vintage images, pink rhinestones, a keyhole embellishment, glitter, and some fabulous lace and ribbon.
Next is Angela's birthday, who turned 1 this week.
I used more of the K&Co Madelain paper and that same MS punch. I stamped "happy birthday" in pink on a large Heidi Swapp flower, then went over the dried ink with my glitter pen. It really added a nice, but subtle, touch. I added a Fancy Pants crocheted flower and star stick pin, and a Bazzill large pink bard in the middle. The finishing touch is the pearl swirl. It just looks so cute and dainty!
The boy (Jason) will celebrate his 2nd birthday in July.
I used Basic Grey Cupcake paper for the background, then cut the vellum circle and cupcake using my Cricut Expression. I added orange and yellow Stickles to the candle flames, and rows of rhinestones to the cupcake's "paper."
Happy Birthday Little Ones!
