Birthday Cards

This first card was really quick and easy, but it actually looks quite smart in real life. The base is black cs (A4), and on that I have a mat of red with the oriental paper. Then I have matted Core'dinations cs on some more red. The image is a peel off that I thought I would use as I'm trying to use them all up (but it's hard, cos I hate using them now!). I finished with three gold mini brads.

For the second card I used blue A4 cs for the base and cut it down to make it square. The dp is from the Dovecrafts Masculine 12x12 pack and I have edged this with a strip of blue, which I trimmed with a wavy edged cutting blade and then faux stitched using a machine and white Sakura Glaze pen. The greeting panel is the same cs as used for the base and strip, and the greeting itself is another peel off coloured using peel off markers. Again I finished with 3 mini brads.

Thanks for looking
