Happy Birthday Boys & Girls

Hey Everyone!

I'm back today with a set of birthday cards for a boy & girl. Using some of our fantastic brads & enamel dots over at our Store

The first card was so much fun because it brought out the kid in me again. I know a lot of people think girl = pink! But personally I have always been a fan of all the colors in crayon box!! And most times for me the brighter the better!!! So I grabbed my super fun Bright Heart Enamel Shapes and used them as my color palette for the entire card:

I made a tiny envelope and left it open to show that there was a ton of love sent her way on her birthday:

These Enamel Hearts are so much fun that I didn't just want to use them on the front so I added them on the inside as well and arranged them to look as though they were also floating her way:

For the boys card I decided I wanted a grunge look and knew I had the perfect paper to match the embellishments I had chosen to use. The embellishments used are Multi Size Green Enamel DotsBlue Stars Enamel DotsStar Brads8mm Fall Brad Mix and the paper is called "Like Father Like Son" from Fancy Pants Designs:

These Star brads are some of the best grunge embellishments I've seen and I love the fact that they come in multiple colors & sizes in the pack. The enamel dots were what made the paper come to life for me :O)

I wanted to dress up the inside a little and the paper pack came with stickers so I pulled one of the borders that I thought would look great with the addition of some of the smaller enamel dots from the packs. I thought the small stars were a great touch for the sentiment:

Well I hope you enjoyed todays project and that it inspired you to create something fun :O)
