Get Carded: Happy Birthday Times Two

Hello! Both a friend and a nephew have their birthdays today, so of course handmade cards were in order. 

My friend's card came together pretty quickly:

Materials used:
  • white card stock
  • art paper scrap (didn't photograph well, but it's very pretty)
  • heart cut from vintage greeting card
  • two pale purple diecut flowers glued to heart shape
  • scrap of purple/gold ribbon
  • "Happy Birthday" stamped in purple ink
I think my friend will like her card - I hope so, anyway!

My nephew's card was harder to make - he's a man of the world now, working his way up the ladder in the hospitality industry out in Las Vegas. He's already had one promotion in the short time he's been there and I'm sure more will follow. Thus, I wanted to design a card that would befit this stage of his life. 

Here's what I came up with:

Materials used:
  • white card stock
  • vintage wrapping paper from old dry goods store
  • art paper scrap (textured light tan piece)
  • art paper scrap (beige piece)
  • art paper scrap (circle shape)
  • image cut from 1947 Sears catalog 
  • "Happy Birthday" stamped in dark brown ink
I chose that particular image of a young man because I thought it resembled my nephew - wonder if he'll think so?

Happy Birthday, Donna and Paul!
