The Last Of This Week's Cardmaking

After getting the family and friend's cards done for November settled down to get the cards I had been asked to do done. These first two are for one of my canasta playing friends daughter and son-in-law's birthdays. For the daughter's card used various sheets from Funky Birthday Prints by Printable Heaven and used the Boss Kut Large 50's Flower, Medium Flower and Diva Flowers dies for embellishments.

For her son-in-law's card followed the instructions on how to fold shirts and used matching papers for the backing - unfortunately I can't remember the name of the paper range.

The last two are for my reflexologist friend who has two girlfriends with birthdays this month, one being a 60th birthday. Went back to K&Company Designer Paper set by Amy Butler called Sola. On the square card, first of all cut a square of the designer paper just slightly smaller than the card. On top of that matted another square, slightly smaller again. Then cut four squares which I embossed with the D'vine Swirl embossing folder, then another four smaller squares again. Then topped it off with the Large 50's Flower from Boss Kuts.

For the final card, the 60th birthday one, matted on a C6 card base a rectangle which is slightly smaller that the card base. Then cut 7 strips which I embossed using the D'vine Swirl embossing folder which I stuck down in an offset pattern. Torn a strip of co-ordinating paper and then used a dotted line to give the impression of stitching. The embellishment from was from a flower set from Accessorize. And finished it off with the sentiment - Here's to the 39th anniversary of your 21st birthday'.
