Family Birthday Cards

Here are two cards that I made for family birthdays.

This first card is one I made for my dad.  It uses the Autumn Days stamp set from Stampin' Up! (This is a favorite go-to set for masculine cards.)  I've been seeing many stair step cards as I've visited blogs and wanted to try one.  I found directions for a Middle Step Card (I'm sorry I don't remember where - I will keep looking and post the link if I can find it) and knew I wanted to try it with this set.  The folded base is Soft Suede and the images are stamped on Kraft with Soft Suede and Dusty Durango ink.  I used the ticket punch on the corners.

This is the card I made for my mom. I used Rose Red designer paper for the background.  The rest of the card is all supplies from the new Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Brations catalogs.  I LOVE the new border punch that is in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  It makes such a simple, but elegant border.  The flower is from the Sweet Pea Stitched felt set and the sentiment is from the Well Scripted sentiment set, both in the Occasions Mini catalog.

So glad that you took time to stop by for a visit.  Blessings to you!
