These two birthdays snuck up on me and I had to put these two cards together one night.
First up is a birthday card for my nephew who will be 7 in a little over a week and we will be celebrating this weekend. I was inspired by this sketch at Sketch Saturday:
I decided to use my Cricut to cut out the super hero for my card. The background for my card is Core'dinations White Wash cardstock that I dry embossed and then sanded to accentuate the embossing.
The second card is for my nephew who is turning one in a few days. I was inspired by last week's sketch at Cardabilities:
For the background of my card, I used a background stamp and Distress Stains. I punched the banners from patterned paper and edged them with ink. I used my Cricut to cut the letters using the "Makin' the Grade" cartridge. The balloons for stamped, heat embossed, and fussy cut. I drew the strings for the balloons with a pen. Some twine embellishments finished off the card.
