Birthday Wishes Times Two

I’m kind of on a paper-piercing kick, so here are a couple more cards with piercing. I’ll just upload them in one blog post, since they use the same stamps.

For both cards, I used the flower stamp from Stampin’ Up!’s Tag Time. I used SU! markers to color them, then stamped. The Birthday Wishes sentiment is from another SU! set called Sincere Salutations – one of my very favorite SU! sets. I liked the way it fit into the flowers, and that’s why I decided to do a second card using them. The butterfly is stamped on SU!’s vellum cardstock with Versamark, embossed with white detail embossing powder, and carefully cut out. The wings are bent up, and the butterfly is adhered with a strip cut from Pop Dots “scraps.” (I always use the parts around the Pop Dots, too. Do you? Just curious!) I saw someone pierce the corners this way and I liked it. The bottom layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
On the second card - which I did first :) - I also added some color to the flowers with chalk. Not much more to it – just Scor-Pal, piercing and matting.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
