Birthday Card #4 - Birthday Tags

And lastly on this birthday series I have decided to make some tags. 
I really wanted to show the different ways to show off this amazing paper that I came up with something different. 

I didn't want them all to be cards, so these tags worked out well. 
You can make a set of tags and gift them to someone. I'm sure that someone would be able to pt them to good use. 

Base Card Stock: 2 x 4 1/4
Basic Black: 3 3/8 x 1 7/8
Designer Series Paper: 3 1/4 x 1 3/4
Small scrap for stamping: 1/2 x 1 1/2

Hope you enjoyed

Birthday Card #3 - Yummy Donuts 5x5 Card

Now here's a card you can sink your teeth into. Well I wish I could anyways. 
This fun 5x5 card was made for one of my nieces' who's birthday is coming up. 

I had my daughter pick out which paper she would like and she chose this one. I thought it was perfect and so created this card. 

I did try a little something different. I placed what I would consider the inside sentiment on the outside and vice versa. It made the flow of the card special. 

Card Base: 5 x 10   score at 5 inches
Basic Black: 4 3/4 x 4 3/4
Designer Series Paper: 4 5/8 x 4 5/8
White, black, and Berry Burst scraps: 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 - you can make them longer or shorter
White inside: 4 3/4 x 4 3/4

Hope you enjoyed

Birthday Card #2 - 4x4 Candle Card

Here is card #2. I wanted to go a different route and make a 4x4 card. 
It s a much smaller version to what I am used to but I like it. I was fun making this card. And it allowed me to use less paper. 

Again this is a card that can go to anyone. it doesn't have to be a birthday card either. It can be to celebrate anything. I would even use this as a graduation card. 

Card Base: 8 x 4   score at 4 inches
Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock: (2)  3 3/4 x 3 3/4
Designer Series Paper: 3 5/8 x 3 5/8
Tag: 2 x 1 1/4   white: 1 7/8 x 1 1/8

Hope you enjoyed

Birthday Card #1 - Cue the Confetti

I wanted to start a mini series on birthday cards using the Picture Perfect DSP Pack (145559). 
When I saw this paper in the Occasions Catalog I wasn't drawn to it right away. It took some convincing from other demonstrators for me to get this paper. 
But once I got it I loved it. I couldn't stop using it and making projects. 

This card was my favorite. I have seen others make similar cards to this one using this certain paper and sentiment. I was very impressed at how easy it was to put it all together and have a fun card out of it. 

What I think makes it more special is that it can go to anyone. You can give this card to a guy or dress it up and give it to a girl. A very fun and simple card. 

Card Base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2   score at 4 1/4
Black Card Stock: 4 x 5 1/4,  2 5/8 x 4 7/8
Pool Party Card Stock: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
DSP: 4 3/4 x 2 1/2
Whisper White inside: 4 x 5 1/4
Scrap: white: 1 x 3
