More Personalized Birthdays

Hi, guys!  Hope the day is treating you well.   I thought I would share two cards I made for a friend to give for birthday celebrations she has coming up.  She asked that both be personalized with the name of the recipient.  It seems that is always a hit because the person realizes that the card was ordered and made with them specifically in mind.

Stamps: Stampin' Up
Paper: Stampin' Up, Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper
Ink: Versafine Black, Distress Ink
Misc.: Clear Embossing Powder, Circle Punch

Stamps: Stampin' Up
Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Versamark, Memento Black
Misc.: Cooper Embossing Powder, Oval Punch, Cooper Cord

These were fun to make and my friend was happy with the way they turned out.  She is a person who loves browns and blacks and leopard print, so I tried to use them in each of these cards.

I hope the rest of your day is a good one and that you find a few moments to do something you love.

Beautiful cards Winnie and I love how you personalised them for your friend - it makes them unique and very special and I am sure your friend will appreciate the extra-efforts that you went to.

I especially love the copper embossed trees and matching cord.

Very pretty cards. I love the embossing you did on the 2nd card too. And Winnie, can you believe that I did not get my 1st Communion stamp on time! I was very disappointed. :(
