Birthday Cards

In honor of my grandpa's birthday, I thought I would post a couple of birthday cards.

I made this first one for my brother. My 8 year old nephew just gushed over how cool it was. He's a keeper. :)

I sponged the baseball and the edges of the card because players are always dusty or dirty after a game. This topper fits in a standard A2 envelope. I started with a 4.25 square card and then positioned the topper to fit in the envelope.

Stamps: Sporting Goods, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: real red, buckaroo blue, white
Ink: black, real red, buckaroo blue, chocolate chip
Accessories: markers, CM custom cutting system, ribbon

This chocolaty birthday card was made using an old SCS sketch challenge.

Stamps: Eat Cake, Snow Flurries, Pure & Simple Alphabet
Paper: chocolate chip, creamy caramel, very vanilla
Ink: chocolate chip, close to cocoa, creamy caramel, more mustard
Accessories: ribbon, ticket corner punch, paper piercer, markers, square punches

Really cute birthday cards. I really like the way you did the 34 as part of the trim. How creative!
