Throwback Thursday

 A little kitchen mishap has temporarily deterred my crafting this week so I am revisiting a series of birthday cards that I had created for a group of friends with birthdays in the same  month. 

These colorful birthday cards were made with my Stampotique birthday cube with candle.

I stamped the cakes and added the candles.  Using Copics, hole punched text, liquid pearls, scrapbook paper and rhinestones to embellish.  No two were exactly alike.  I raised the cake image with foam adhesive squares and doodled frames with Pitt pen and more color. The edges of the cards were treated with Distress inks.

I presented the birthday gals and guys with the cards in clear cellophane with a handful of Dove chocolates. The bags were tied with contrasting organza ribbon. 

The partiers were pleased with their handmade token gifts.

Making several at a time made it fun to make and fun to give.




  1. Janet wishing you well...... A great idea to do a batch of birthday cards like you have shown ... Great cards

  2. Ouch! Hope you heal quickly, Janet. Your revisited post is new to me, and what a marvelous idea! I love making cards ahead and having them on hand, but find myself spending a of of time making a bunch since I need both "boy" and "girl" cards. Making a batch of such versatile cards as these makes it simple. Definitely will order that stamp! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Great cards, love the collection of different cards. Hope your finger heals quickly.
