Had a 'Bugging' Day!!!!

Don't normally get to spend a Monday cardmarking. But as today is the Prophet's Birthday out here, got a day off school, so thought I would put it to good use and get ahead on my birthday/anniversary card list. Got as far as mid-April.

The first card I did was for our friends', Fiona and Stephen's 1st wedding anniversary. As lilac and purple are two of Fiona's favourite colours thought it would be ideal colours for the card. Saw this cuttlebug technique, Cuttlebug Circular Embossing, ages ago but have never got round to doing a card. Want to say thanks to Becca Feeken for sharing it with us. I used the same embossing folder that Becca used. Then cut out two scalloped nestability ovals. For the words, sorry you can't read them, but printed them onto the cream card using word and surrounded them with a very thin oval, before cutting out the oval, using the plain oval nestability.

The second card, was a really quick one. Used the embossing folder from the Welcome Baby set and then again using Word printed out the sentiment. Fixed in some brads and matted it all onto a card with foam pads.

The last one, is for my brother-in-law's sort of stepson's birthday. Using the jigsaw die cut out out the jigsaw in three different colours before sticking them on to card with the 'knobbly bits' of the jigsaw just touching where they should fit into. Used the Olivia dies to spell out the word 'birthday' and stuck each letter onto a separate jigsaw piece before mounting the whole thing onto white card and rounding off the open corners with a corner punch.
