Tag Arkiv: happy birthday

Marine theme

For my mother in law’s birthday I made a card with sea and marine theme in mind.


 I made an oblong card in white and attached a red paper and punched the edge with scalloped border punch from Stampin Up.

Then I did a pennant and attached the pennants with adhesive pads and silver thread behind.   
I punched out the name and the word congratulations (Grattis) with dies from Marianne Design. I added three gems. 

Finally the gift had to match the card 😉 


Turquoise card 

I gave away a piece of jewelry in turquoise and wanted to make a card that matched the gift.
For the turquoise paper I used an embossing folder with dots. The white paper strip I cut out and glued. 

Then I punched out letters in the turquoise paper. (”Grattis” is congratulations in swedish). 
I attached a gem and a flower and  rounded the corners of the card and the paper.


Pirate card 

For my nephews birthday I made a card with ”pirate feeling”. 

Black card stock with a dotted designer paper with skull and crossbones. 
I used dies from Lawn Fawn for the designer paper and for the white card stock with his name on. The letters is from a die from Marianne Design. 


Pop up card in orange 

As soon as I saw this paper I wanted to make a card to a dear friend. She is a very crafty person so I wanted to make ”more than just a card”. 

I created a pop up card from creame colored cardstock. I attached the designer paper and punched out stars, hearts and circle and scalloped circle. 

I wrote ”Grattis!” and that is swedish for ”Congratulations!”. 
On the back (not in any image) I attached orange paper and wrote a message. I also attached a flower.
