Blogger's Challenge - Birthday Cards


This challenge was hard! I can't decide between 2 different cards, so I'm going to post them both! The first one is a card I designed for classes and camps last month - and it was such a big hit, I knew when I saw the challenge this week that I had to share it.

If you hadn't noticed by now, I just love bling! Anything to make a project sparkle just a bit or any way to add just a bit of unexpected color or fun makes me smile and I hope you too!
This card started with a base of Basic Black cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded and layered with a piece of Pink Passion cut at 4 x 5 1/4. I then took a piece of Whisper White and stamped "celebrate" from Celebrate Everything in Pink Passion across the bottom. I then used scrap paper and masked off the greeting and used the circles from Pick A Petal to create the bouncy polka dots! Using the NEW Black Chunky Essentials glitter (love it!) I adhered a piece of Sticky Strip to the white cardstock and covered it with the glitter. White layer was then adhered to another layer of Basic Black and hole punched with the 1/8" punch in one of the open circles. I used one of the clear rhinestone brads from the Pretties Kit for the finishing touch and popped the whole thing up on dimensionals and adhered it to the card base. Fun, bright and simple! Enjoy!
