August Birthday Cards

I got the birthday cards done for my family's August birthdays. I copied the idea from a fellow stampin with Stampin' Up! but I used different colors. All my birthdays were for girls this month and the the original was for a boy. Just goes to show that the same exact layout can be used for boys or girls just by shifting the colors around a bit.

I got them in the mail today so they should reach everyone by Saturday at the act surprised if your birthday is in August and you check my blog! ha ha ha It is hard to see in the picture, but the top part of the card base is scored with lines 1/4" apart. It really adds to it and doesn't make it look so plain if it were just flat cardstock. The stamp set used was Party Hearty (#111532) $26.95.

I used Thank You cards that I had done months ago, but I will show you a few of them that I used again since that was before I started the blog.

This was a card that I designed for a demonstrator swap. I still really love it and smile every time I see it. It was simple, but just has that great awwh factor. The stamp set was Friends Never Fade (#120618 Clear Mount $13.95 or #118750 in wood mount $17.95). The strip of Old Olive cardstock was embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (#119976 $7.95) which I LOVE! I can't get enough of my embossing folders.

This was a quick card made from the stamp set Because I Care (#120118) It is a level 1 hostess set and can be your free if you want to hold a qualifying party with me. We can even use this set during the party if you would like.

As always, if you want any of the supplies used, need ideas, want to host a stamp party, or want to join my team....let me know, I can help with ALL of it!
