Birthday season

Spring means birthday season for me. Between my family and my husbands family we had 6 birthdays to celebrate. I didnt' have a chance to blog the cards individually so this is a multi-project blog.

This one is hard to see. But it is a penny slider card. My first attempt, and I was very pleased with how it turned out. I should have made a video of it. (Maybe next time.)
Here is the website I got the directions from:
This lady has a bunch of card directions. I highly recomend checking her out!

This is my first accordion stand up card. I love the stickers (from my stash) and the paper is the new DCWV Celebrations stack.

 This is my favorite of all the birthday cards. This is my horizontal stand up accordion card. I made a zig-zag support on the sides of the frame so that the green frame stands out about a 1/2 inch from the paper. I then punched a hole in the top center for the frame. Threaded a cute paperclip through and hung the cake from it. I don't know if you can see it in the picture or not, but the cake is full of stickles for lots of extra sparkle!

I used these directions as a base and then adjusted it to my own needs:

Paper: DCWV, Cake cut from Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge.

 This is a stand up card (see picture below to see the stand up feature). Simple and fun. I love the digi stamp (I have many on my computer, but this is the first time I have actually printed and used one.) The particular stamp is a Dustin Pike digi. Love his work! He gives away freebie digis every once and awhile.
