Cards and 3D projects for birthdays

Dinoroar Fancy Fold Card

I love how this DSP can be used on the card and on the envelope for the Dionorar Fancy Fold Card! Recently I decided that I was going to use as much of the Designer Series Paper as possible so here’s another card ready for mailing to some of my “littles”!! Thanks so much to Lillian Kemp at Stamper’s Niche for sharing her design.

Here are the products used:

Ride the Open Road

Every spring in Alberta those who love riding motorcycles anxiously await for the street cleaning crews to sweep up the gravel. Once that is done, it’s time for them to ride the open road again!

These are all the products used to make my card:

Geared Up to Celebrate

When it comes to young people, they seem to always be Geared Up to Celebrate! With that in mind, I’ve created this card without too many layers. The stamp does most of the work and, of course, the dies do the cutting. I did do some colouring and it was all set to go!

It’s an easy card to duplicate so, if your birthday card list is long like mine is, you can make a dozen or two quickly and you’ll be ready to mail them when the birthdays arrive!

Here are the products used:
