Liking the MFT Decorative Doily Die and celebrating Birthdays with Friends

Welcome to the next 5 days of Birthdays! I have had a some great posts burning a hole in my drafts folder and thought it would be great to share them with you in a small Birthday showcase!

This post had been sitting in my draft box for a while (beginning of May) and I was a little hesitant to publish it then because I forgot to take photos of the cards. Only to realize that I took a couple with my phone and posted it to instagram when I was in mid creativity!

I apologize that these weren’t taken with my usual set up 🙂

The last Saturday in April, I was teaching a glitter class at Classic. We had a couple of surprises as it was Shirley’s Birthday on the Friday and Deana’s on the Sunday sooooo Saturday just after class was perfect to celebrate both!

I just love the bold bright colours of Bo Bunny’s Ambrosia which reminds me of Deana’s bright, bubbly personality and couldn’t resist using them on her card! Toss in a splash of alcohol inks to add some dimension with a Verve stamp and voila! It makes me smile!

For Deana

For Shirley’s card, I had a little something different in mind. Shirley just loves gears and anything with gears. Naturally I grabbed the Cuttlebug Gears embossing folder and copper shimmer card stock. The doily reminds me of a big gear and to cut it out of the copper card stock was perfect. I added a strip of Be Creative tape on top of some black ribbon and burnished Copper glitter over top because it’s tough to resist glitter. I love the font script of Verve sentiments, it adds the right tough of elegance that’s so Shirley.

For Shirley

Thanks for visiting today, come by tomorrow for more Birthday goodness!

  1. Hi Spike,

    Glad you were able to celebrate Deana’s and Shirley’s birthdays. Really love the cards they are really quite unique. Looking forward to receiving the rest of the cards you talk about. Would also love to know how we did the Chloe Butterfly card that was done at class on June 11th
