September is birthday month for my twin granddaughters.  I love making their birthday cards.. the same but different.  The difference is all about the color.  I have a turquoise/teal girl and an all out lover of everything pink girl.  So their cards, although the same design, reflect their personal color favorites.

The flowers were made with daisy punches.  The leaves are die cut.

I usually forget to add some fun to the envelopes.  But, I actually remembered this time!

These rubber band butterflies are wound up tight and placed inside the card.  When the card is opened, the butterfly comes fluttering out.  Just a little added surprise for some fun.

Today’s card is yet another creation that works for everyone including the guys.  It was super quick and easy to make, too!

The die cut leaf has been distressed/sponged around the edges.  It is popped up on foam tape and placed on a small embossed square of card stock which matches the card base.

This card can be used as a sympathy card or as an apology card when goof-ups happen.

As autumn approaches, I love that the warm oranges and yellows along with the deep greens can once again be used to match the season.  A black metallic heart clip finishes off the design.

With a hubby and four sons I’m always needing a card for one occasion or another that is suitable for a guy.  When I saw this bridge image I knew it would fit the bill to make some cards for just that.  I think a clean and simple design is usually best suited for that need as well.

Part of the sentiment is popped up on tape to give some dimension to a relatively simple design.

Had lots of fun with lots of challenges.  Woohoo!
