Happy Birthday, Pastor

Our Pastor is a true outdoorsman and the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Bundle was perfect for making his birthday card. I followed the instructions on Jeannette’s Paper Crafts YouTube channel for making a Mountain Air Diorama card.  My husband suggested adding his picture within the diorama and found the perfect picture of him and his wife, down-sized it, then cut it out to go inside.  I’ve got bird dies that I purchased a couple of years ago and I cut out birds using Whisper White card stock ... I wanted the birds on the card to look more like seagulls.

I decorated the envelope using the mountain stamp and used alphabet stamps to personalize it with his name.

Stamps: Mountain Air, By the Dock, 

Inks: Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, 

Dies: Majestic Mountain,

Fall Birthday Card for Chadz

It’s our son-in-law’s birthday and I made him a Fall-Themed birthday card.  Looks so simple, yet elegant while it remains on the masculine side.  This was a quick card to make and NO DSP is required.  Just card-stock, ink, 3-D Embossing folder, and dies. I stamped leaves on the envelope using Old Olive and Cajun Craze stamp pads.

All stamps are from Stampin’ Up!: A Good Man; Vintage Leaves (retired, my favorite); Happiest Birthday Wishes (Inside Sentiment, Retired)

Inks: VersaMark, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Cajun Craze

Thick Whisper White Card-stock
