Birthday Cards

I made these two cards last night, but just got a chance to upload them.. These are for my upcoming card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. At the class we will make four cards, all different design and these are the first two of them.

Both of the cards measure 6" x 6" and feature newly released clear stamps sets from Hero Arts. I used two different stamps sets on these cards, "Birthday Frames" and "Celebrate All", they coordinate so nice.

These are pretty simple cards comparing to my other designs. You know how I always say that I have hard time containing myself with the layers and the details. Well.. on these cards I have tried to add more, but they just didn't want it.. So, instead I decorated them more on the inside :-) .

Here is the first card...

Inside view of the card..

Card number two..

and this is how the second card looks like on the inside..

On the first card I used Scor-Pal to create a frame around the large blue layers and also embossed the lines on the brown borders. On the second card I embossed the frame with Scor-Pal on the white layer on the main image. Circles on the first card were cut with Nestabilites. I think these cards can be given to a man and with this though in mind I limited use of Stickles. I only used Golden Rode Stickles on the candles on the first card..

I am teaching two classes with these cards next week..
