Cards for the Birthday Girls

Two of my nieces (sisters) have birthdays two days (plus 2 years) apart and this past weekend we got together to celebrate.

It’s been a pleasure to watch them grow into women and they are both wonderful mothers.


Renee’s card (top) was made with SEI scrapbook paper that I’ve had for a long time. I found a nice script R, traced the outline and cut it out of the pink patterned paper. The butterfly sticker is also from an old SEI kit. I mounted the butterfly on a foam dot, first dusting the back of the sticker with talcum powder to tame the glue.

I started Lupe’s card by adhering the blue washi tape in three strips. The stickers were all part of a set I got from a cute boutique in Palo Alto. I gave the banner letters the same treatment with powder and foam glue dots, raising them up off of the cardstock.

Happy Happy Birthday Ladies!
