My husband’s birthday is in October, but we are going to be in Europe for three weeks and so I wanted to get his card created early.

Woven Ribbons Birthday Wishes

I think this die from Frantic Stamper creates a background that looks like a beautiful quilt. I played around with this quite a bit. At first I didn’t like the hot pink and purple together until I finally changed the patterned paper sections. The flowers in that paper are so similar to Altenew’s Rose Flurries 3D dies that I decided to add a flower in the lower left corner.

Silver Layered Cupcake Happy Birthday

I really liked the way stamping this cupcake image from Altenew on silver mirror cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossing it with silver and then coloring some of the area with Copic Markers turned out. The Honey Bee You’re a Classic stamp set has matching dies for each word, but I wanted to keep them together so did some partial die cutting to make that happen. The blue plaid background gives it a great masculine feel.
