A Trio of Birthday Cards for RRR
Hello, Friends! Hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday! It seems like no matter how many birthday cards I make, I always need more. So I’m just popping in today with a trio of birthday cards that will hopefully give you some fresh ideas for your own birthday card stash.
Cream on Cream Birthday Card
This first card is made with a vintage image that I found in my stash. I embossed cream cardstock, then sponged it lightly with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The card was pretty, but looked very plain until I added the Two-Tone Brown Sweetheart Blossoms and a lightly inked white cosmos blossom. The little birthday banner was cut out with Tim’s Tattered Banners die.
I’ve Got the Blues Birthday Card
It’s no secret that I love my gingham ribbon, and this gorgeous blue, gold and ivory plaid ribbon was the perfect accessory for this well dressed lady! The paper and ephemera are from Betsy’s Couture from Kaiserkraft.
Rootin’ Tootin’ Six Gun Shootin’ Birthday Card
The third card in this trio of birthday cards is this sassy Annie Oakley birthday card. I had been asked to make a birthday card for a gal who loved cowboys and the color blue. So I pulled out some gorgeous Noble Peacock Seam Binding and worked it up with some papers and goodies from October Afternoon’s Sarsaparilla collection. I used a vintage photo of Annie Oakley on the card front along with a cute button flower that I finished off with a teeny tiny Burlap String bow. The inside is fun, too:
I tied all the bows with my trusty Zutter Bow-it-All tool. It seems like no matter what kind of ribbon I’m working with, the bows turn out great!
So that’s three birthday cards with fabulous ribbon and trim down…only about a gazillion left to go!
Thanks for stopping by!
