Freshly Made Birthday Wishes!

IMG_4935Today’s post is a couple birthday cards that I made for two little boys who turned 3 and 5 recently. I used some chipboard numbers that I had and covered them with DSP. I sanded the edges with a nail file to give them a slight distressed look. IMG_4946This card is using the Freshly Made Sketch #64 (click to check it out) and the color combination is So Saffron, Island Indigo, Old Olive, and White. I used some old DSP called Sweet Pea, from Stampin’ Up, and a retired stamp set, It’s Your Birthday, for the sentiment.IMG_4939I actually made this card a few years ago and it has been waiting for someone special to turn 5 years old! The colors are mostly retired: Taken with Teal, Green Galore, and Only Orange!! I still have a stash of these card stock colors….so it is fun to pull out old cards and see how the colors have changed. These bright colors are still fun, especially for kids cards.

It feels good to use some of those old items in my stamp room….they have been taking up valuable space for NEW stuff….so I really need to start using them up!  Thanks for stopping by and checking out today’s birthday wishes.
