Birthday Soiree 2.0

Hi there and welcome back!  I thought I would share the rest of the cards I made as a birthday present for my friend.  You can see the first one here (Birthday Soiree).  The primary theme for all the cards is the use of the retired Elegant Soiree designer series paper, of which I still have a healthy supply that I am trying to use up.

This first card uses one of the floral images from the beautiful Birthday Blooms.  It was colored with reinkers and a blender pen, then die cut with a Labels Collection framelit.  The sentiment, stamped in Baja Breeze was popped out with a Large Oval punch.

The star of this next card is the fun sentiment from Botanicals For You, available free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 or more purchase.  After stamping I used Gold Wink of Stella to add some gold dots in the upper left corner.  I really like how the Gold Baker's Twine and sequins look against the Soft Suede design.

This third card has a softer look to it with the butterfly and doily.  The sentiment was die cut with one of the tags from the Tags and Labels Framelits that I recently decided to order.  Love these cute shapes!

And finally a decidedly more masculine card.  This time the sentiment and the piece it was layered on were die cut with two of the labels from the Tags & Labels Framelits, while the flags were die cut with one of the dies included with the Gift Card Envelope framelit.

I didn't add too much detail about each card for the sake of brevity, and I've listed all the product details below for each one.  But if you have a specific question about anything I've shared today, please let me know in the comment section. Thanks for visiting today!
