Happy Birthday Cards

Hello my friends... Another week has come to an end...  another weekend starting...

Hope you are doing wonderful and that you are finding purpose and motivation in everything you do.

Just wanted to stop by and share some cards I recently made for my neighbor friends.  They are a nice couple and they usually celebrate her birthday with a great party.  His birthday is mostly celebrated in a lower key level but still... birthdays are something important for them, as they are for us.

I made his card first and we could not give it to him until her bday (about 2 weeks away from each other's date), but it was cool anyway because he didn't expected it...

I wanted the card to definitely has his name on it... because last year I gave a personalized card to his wife and he complained (teasing me, but still...complained, LOL).

So I stamped his name really big to make it an obvious personalization.

For the Happy Birthday sentiment, I used washi tape, and then I added some dimension with a 3D owl...  My friend is a very wise guy (he's a modern nerd, don't tell him), and I think the owl makes an statement... and it looks cute too!

There's also some stamping going on inside (it says PARTY, make all your wishes come true; it's a Unity stamp).

Then, for her card I also wanted to add her name...

So I communicated the Happy Birthday message with some big chipboard letters... also playing with them, because those are also the initials for both their names.

I embossed the banner with a recently acquired embossing folder from Darice... Love it!  
I stamped a background to make the red base with the elements pop out.  

I complemented the banner silhouette with washi tape, bakers twine, flowers and bling bling.  I love the combination of this turquoise blue on red... and I feel I made a great choice because she was dressed with hot dress at the party and the bling bling goes with her fabulousness... LOL.

So...  this was all... Hope you have a great weekend.  Don't forget to stop by frequently.  Loooove your comments and your visits.
