This week the mailman delivered two hand stamped birthday cards to two members of the Baughman family. Yesterday was my Mother in Law Alvena's birthday and tomorrow is my Nephew Jacob's birthday. I used our Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and coordinating Birthday Delivery Stamp Set to design birthday cards for both Alvena and Jacob. These coordinating products featured on page 69 of our Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual catalog are so festive and fun. I love how you can use these coordinating products to make such bright and beautiful birthday greeting cards.
The card I made for Jacob featured a parade of characters that were fussy cut and raised with mini dimensionals around a stamped birthday greeting. These characters were cut right out of the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, which is the same paper that the colorful polka dot back ground of this card comes from.
The inside of the card had a stamped greeting as well as a fussy cut party hat and presents.
My Mother In Law's card came out really cute and sweet. This card has a vintage style and is pretty in pink.
I just love this adorable little girl, she kind of reminds me of my Mother In Law who is cute as a cupcake and really sweet too! And trust me, I'm not just saying that because she reads my blog, I really mean that!
Since we have such adorable coordinating stamps in the Birthday Greetings stamp set, I was able to make a coordinating envelope to mail the card in.
When my Mother in Law opened her card she called me right away and told me how much she loved it. She mentioned that it brought back memories from the 1950's when her Mom had entered her into the Miss Sunbeam contest. I am glad that something as simple as a birthday card brought back special memories from her childhood and made her smile.
I'm certain she must have won that contest but I'll have to have her tell me all about it next time I talk to her.
Until then, I hope you enjoyed these two simple birthday greetings created with lots of love for two special Baughman birthdays!
