April Birthday Couple

These two cards are for my Aunt and Uncle - their birthday's are two days apart!  This first card is for my Aunt.  The white cardstock is from a friend, and the pink cardstock is from my mom.  I used some Stampin' Up stamps to unify the background with the eye catching piece.  This is actually from an Art & Design school final show program that I went to with my cousin in England back in 2009.  I was fortunately able to use a friend's Big Shot (also Stampin' Up) to press the happy birthday greetings into.  I told my hubby that all I want for Christmas is a Big Shot :)  The black ribbon is from my cousin's wedding invite!

This card is for my uncle (seeing a spring theme here?)  The white cardstock is from a friend and the green is from my mom.  The stamps are Stampin' Up, and the ink and sparkly ribbon are from my mom.

I used a Stampin' Up punch and stamp to spice up the inside of this card - and I did something cool, can you see it?

Surprise!! It's a tri-fold card with a window.  Yep, I'm quite pleased with myself ;)  I hope they like the cards!! <3 JEM
