First Birthdays

June 7, 2010 Sarah Coggins

Two of Dylan’s friends celebrated their first birthdays last Thursday. I had fun making each their own special card.

Most of Dylan’s friends are boys so I don’t get a chance to make girly stuff very often. Thus I went all out pink for this card for little ‘L’:

Supplies: Yours Truly card; Paper Salon patterned paper; Fiskars border punch; Making Memories edge scraper and stitches; flower; Autumn Leaves button.

Little ‘C’ loves balls so much that his parents’ are throwing him a ball themed first birthday party. (His mom made the coolest circular invites!) This Basic Grey paper jumped out at me as the perfect fit for his card:

Supplies: Die Cuts with a View card; Basic Grey patterned paper; miscellaneous cardstock; Fiskars border punch; QuicKutz circle die; Studio G stamp; StazOn black ink; adhesive backed foam.

    Both cards are so cute! I love the card you made for Trent. Dylan's handprint is a nice touch.
