Quick Birthday Cards

Quick birthday card. Got the inspiration (or totally stolen) from a video by Christina Griffiths on youtube I don't have a background stamp that I liked for this so I embossed it with an embossing folder from the paper studio, 'Blocks & angles' and then rubbed Tim Holtz Distress ink spiced marmalade over the raised parts. I stamped happy birthday wrapped black and white bakers twine and added three homemade enamel dots. Quick yet still cute.

The pink & yellow card I made with patterned paper and a button.  I accidentally cut the angle the wrong way but oh well.  Also, I don't have a picture but I made envelopes lined with the embossed and the patterned papers to match the cards.  Nice to have a batch of ready to go cards.
