Happy Birthday – Two Ways

This past week we celebrated both my husband’s birthday and mom’s birthday, which happen to fall the same day.

For their birthdays I thought I’d create one birthday card and make it two ways, one feminine and one masculine (or neutral).

Here are the two birthday cards:

For my mom’s card, I used Emerald Envy as the base.  I specifically picked this color because Emerald is the birthstone in May.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped flowers in two corners.  I used the Penned & Painted stamp set and Watermelon Wonder (full strength and stamped off for lighter color) and Mint Macaron (full strength and stamped off for lighter color).

Next I used the Large Letters framelits to cut out the “B-Day” in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I straightened out the “Happy” from the Banners for You stamp set and stamped it in Emerald Envy ink.  I added a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

For my husband’s card, I started out with Basic Gray cardstock.  I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Old Olive and Smoky Slate ink to stamp the balloons in either corner.

The “B-Day” was cut out using Old Olive cardstock this time and the “Happy” this time was stamped in Smoky Slate ink.
