More Birthday Cards!

Hello, Crafty Friends!

As I mentioned last time, I will be sharing birthday cards that I recently made on the blog this week.  Here are some more cards made with Close To My Heart papers.  The first set of cards were made with Paper Fundamentals in Gypsy, Pear, Hollyhock, and Juniper along with the coordinating colors of ink.  I stamped a decorative border using the Charming Chevrons stamp set and embellished them with the matching Sparkle Chevron Shapes.  The Happy Birthday sentiments were stamped with the Joyful Birthday stamp set.  I think they WILL make joyful birthday greetings, don’t you?

The next card was made with Yuletide Carol paper.  I think it made a great background for the vintage feel of the clock image!  I also used Olive and Chocolate ink and cardstock.  The clock image was from the Hostess stamp set Hats Off and I cut the coordinating Cricut cut from Artiste by CTMH.  I just LOVE how simple Close To My Heart makes it to pair their stamped images with various Cricut cuts!  I attached the clock hands with a metal embellishment that I received in my Grab Bag in March and added a length of baker’s twine to finish it off.  The sentiment on the inside was another Cricut cut from the Design Space subscription.
