It’s hip to be square – 21st Birthday Card

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is ‘it’s hip to be square’ – so I have taken squares and rotated squares (diamonds) and really run with it with this 21st birthday card.

21st Birthday Square Cream and Black Card

The Happy Birthday sentiment stamp is by Daisy & Dandelion, and the border is die cut using a Sweet Dixie die.

I will also be entering this card in to the challenges over at Inspiration Destination (anything goes) and Cute Card Thursday (words or numbers).

It’s short and sweet for me today as it was my first day back at work after having time off to recover from surgery and it has taken a bit of a toll today, I will certainly sleep soundly tonight!

Two is better than one

I had a request this week for two 18th birthday cards for twin girls, one who likes pink and the other who likes nature, so when I saw this sketch over at Pals Paper Arts I instantly saw a large flower in the design.


I used flower die-cuts in multiple colours pinned with a decorative split pin (both from DCWV), which I then laid over a strip of card from DCWV’s blossoms and butterflies mat stack. The numbers are peel-offs which I coloured to match both designs and added with foam pads, finally I added small gems as accents.
