50th and 18th Birthday Cards

Above is the shadow box card I made for my brother-in-law for his 50th birthday - it was made using one piece of A4 card cut in half. These cards are so easy to make, and I think they look really effective; they can be flattened to go in an A5 envelope, but I made a box to put this one in.

Items Used:
Papers from Hot Off The Press
Decoupage - Bowling Man from Papernation
Number Templates from Colour My World
Sentiment printed from computer

And I made this card for my nephew. I have used my Crafter's Companion Ultimate Pro to emboss the stars.

Items Used:
Papers downloaded from Crafts Beautiful website
Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro Board
Number Templates from Colour My World
Adhesive Stars from my stash, coloured with permanent pen

Well, I hope you like these cards. Must go now, as I have to get tea before going to a meeting for work, and the children are falling out!!!

Lots of Love
