Pair of Happy Birthday To You cards

Happy Monday, everybody! Hope you have a great week coming up! This is my last guest designer post for Make the Cards Challenge, and I thank Jill and the rest of the gang for this fun guest gig! I’ve had a great time! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to share my inspiration project for MTCC #23 – Sketch Challenge! Who doesn’t love a sketch, especially when it’s an awesome CAS sketch?!

I know I’ve mentioned previously (multiple times, lol) that I’m navigating more toward clean and simple these days than I ever have. This sketch really spoke to me so I decided to make a pair of cards that are the same on the front but have different sentiments inside.

I cut two standard size top folding A2 card bases from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner which I frequently like to do! I’m quirky like that, lol! I cut two stitched circles from CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock and adhered one to the bottom right quadrant of each card base. I stamped the hibiscus flowers, buds and leaves (two of each) on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock as well, and adhered a set to the stitched circle die cut on each card base. I stamped the sentiment twice in purple ink on a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed them, and adhered one to each card.

As mentioned above, the inside sentiments are different on each card.

And one more peek… totally loving how these turned out! Super simple card design that could easily be mass produced for a set to give as a gift!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
