Birthday Cards Part Two - Copic Markers, Cricut and Stamping Bella

๐Ÿ‘‰  Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age.  Booth Tarkington

It's raining birthdays for my friends lately and I have been having such fun creating cards for these amazingly talented crafty ladies.  We are celebrating two birthdays in my card crafting group this week and I wanted my cards to coordinate a little because I'm that obsessive.  This is the card I made earlier for one of my friends.  Not to be outdone (by myself๐Ÿ˜€),  I chose another darling Stamping Bella stamp for this card and stuck with a pink and blue color palette.  I've really enjoyed adding shiny gold card stock accents to my cards lately because I think they add a dressy look, kind of like  a touch of jewelry.

I think a pop up is always a delightful surprise in any card and, since some colorful birthday gifts leap out of my first card,  I just had to add a festive cake pop up to this card.  Both images came from the Anna Griffin pop up cartridge in Cricut Design Space.  They were a little labor intensive but actually very simple to make using my Score Pal to crease  the pop ups and I think they add  a lot of "bang for the buck." 

Here's what I used:
  1. Cricut Design Studio card base and frame
  2. This Uptown Girl Stamping Bella stamp
  3. This Anna Griffin Cricut Cartridge pop up in Design Studio
  4. Metallic gold card stock
  5. Happy Birthday die cut sentiment
  6. Flower die cuts
  7. Copic markers
  8. Gem stones
  9. Score Pal
Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
