Feminine Birthday

I was inspired by Kelly Lunceford's thank you card (a team member of Papertrey Ink, my all time favorite stamp company).  I used different colors, embossing design, left some of the elements off the seasonal border, did not use two clusters, did not leave a white area for text and used a birthday die sentiment. Her original design and layout may be seen at Kelly Lunceford

In addition, it is typical for all my cards that the supplies are at least 90% or more Papertrey Ink.  However, in this card I mixed several of my favorite items from several different companies.

Details - White embossed paper is 2 x 5 1/2 inches and Designer Paper is 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches

Vault Birthday Card

My husband asked that I make a special card for his buddy's 70th Birthday Party.  The theme was to go along with a collectible 100 Trillion Dollar Bill from Zimbabwe.  Therefore the safe theme.

No Dies or Stamps were used as it had to be a specialty size.  The front of the card used non copyrighted images and a punched name plate.

Copper Shimmer Paper (SU), Silver Paper (SU)

Hodgepodge Hardware (SU) - hinges and label punch (SU)
