I have joined a group sometime last year, where all the members can make birthday cards for other members who's birthday are at that month. These are the cards that I've made for my crafty friends. Sending birthday cards to crafty friends and receiving birthday cards from your crafty friends is awesome. Let me tell you, this is as much fun as you can get.
I’ve decided to use Hero Arts monthly hero kit, February kit, for birthday card. I absolutely love this kit, you can make many different cards. First, I die cut a paper and stamp the newspaper background on the front and the top portion of the paper to create newspaper-like wrapping paper for the bouquet. Second, embossing the happy birthday sentiment with white embossing powder onto black card stock and then die cut it into sentiment flag. Finally, die cut some bows for the decoration.
For the bouquet, I've die cut the flowers and leaves using color cardstock then applied the detail with sponge and ink. After that, simply glue the flower to the stem. The rest is easy assembly, in no time the bouquet is ready. Finally, I've made some background A2 cardstock using stencil and Nuvo expanding mousse. The texture definitely adds some dimensions and interest to the card.
I am very please with the outcome. I hope my friends will like them as well.
