Children’s Birthday Cards With Cakes

May 11th 2013

Children's first birthday cardChildren's 2nd birthday card

A couple of children’s birthday cards I made last year. I made these using some japanese paper and yellow foam to get some relief on the cakes. The lettering is done with stamps.
I decided to have 3 candles even thought it was a second birthday card as I think odd numbers always look more aesthetically pleasing and I don’t think the recipient had started counting yet :)

New “Home is Where the Heart is” Card

April 28th 2013

A cute little card I made to give to my Sister when she moved house. On the theme of “Home is where the Heart is” I used Emma Bridgewater heart paper and cut out a simple house placed on top of it. I tiled the roof with hearts cut using a heart punch and used some silver alphabet stickers for the lettering.

1st Anniversary Card

April 28th 2013

Another card made for a first anniversary. I was a bridesmaid at the wedding so I pressed some petals from my bouquet and saved them to use in this card.

One difficulty in doing this was sticking the very delicate petals to the card. I used double sided tape for this. It worked reasonably well as it can’t bee seen through the petals however I was very close to tearing them. I tend to use double sided tape for my cards because it is less messy than glue and you dont have to wait for it to dry. Also some glues I have used in the past loose their stickiness and parts of the card fall off. I’ve found double sided tape is a lot more reliable. Also you can buy 3 for £1 in most bargain or pound shops.

The background for this card is Emma Bridgewater paper and I used gel stamps for the lettering.

Sweet Jelly Babies Birthday Card

April 28th 2013

I made this card recently for a 30th birthday. Although the sweets cannot be eaten as they are stuck to the card with strong glue. The card also had to be doubled up so that it would stand because those jelly babies are quite heavy little things.

For Boys (or girls): I made these simple cards for some guys (always more difficult to make for I find). I made them with stamping for the lettering and a simple corner cut out design.
The other one I made with my corner punch tool (for the rounded edges) and some transfer lettering.

Crinkly scissors card

March 17th 2013


I discovered a new craft store near where I work and they sell loads of these scissors with different pattern blades! I couldn’t resist buying myself a pair. I also had an excuse to use them straight away on this card for my sister in law’s birthday.

Mother’s Day Card

March 13th 2013

This years Mother’s Day card for my wonderful Mum. Made with gel stamps from paperchase, flower punch and lots of love. I stamped the lettering onto a yellow piece of card which I rounded using my corner punch. I was going to stick it onto the green card lined up straight but accidentally knocked it. It ended up at an angle and I decided it looked much nicer like that so I stuck it on tilted as you can see. An accidental design which I think turned out very pleasing. And my Mum liked it too.


New job card

March 13th 2013

My fab friend got an amazing new job recently. So I made this card to congratulate her. I used my new gel stamp set for the lettering, a flower punch and added one of my new fabric covered buttons from the button factory set I was given for Christmas. :)
