Cut it Up – Birthday Cards

CIU challenge blogHappy Birthday to you!

At Cut it Up this time, our challenge is an easy one — Birthday cards!

I made this one for my husband this year:


P1070829webI found this file at the Silhouette Online Store.  I like how the easel part works!  Pretty cool, huh?

P1070831webI used the negative space from one of the stars on the front to add a little interest to the inside of the card.  I just used a circle punch to cut around the star, and another one to make a mat, and put a little scrap underneath.

Here it is closed:


P1070833webI used some ribbon from my stash, wood-themed paper from Tim Holtz, and a Close to My Heart stamp.  (BTW, I’m no longer a CTMH Consultant, or even a Jr. Consultant.  My title is now “Former Consultant.”  I think it’s so funny that they have a title for that!!)

Anyhow — there are two prizes you’ll have a chance to win if you link your Birthday Card to Cut it Up ChallengesSparkly Sweet Craft Notions by Beckie is offering a May Arts Ribbon Trio, and Scrappy Dew is offering a $15 Store Credit!
