4th Grade Birthday cards!

As Co-room mom for my son's class, I get the honor of making some birthday cards for the kids.  This month we have 5 birthdays, well actually 1 birthday and 4 half birthdays.  For those of you with children in grade school the half birthday makes sense. Anyway, here they are:

The birthday card for Erica.
This card was made with our older paper, "Paper Garden", Blush and Petal card stock.

The half birthday card for Caroline.
This card is made from the older paper pack "Evensong" with a "Miracl" chipboard element flower. This flower is embssed for ink resist purposes.  I love the colors in this paper pack.

The half birthday card for Lizzie.
Lizzie's card has a "Miracle Butterfly" that is setup for resisting embossing, colored with Creme Brulee, Juniper and Sorbet.  The flowers are from the December Constant campaign, Rock the Block stamp set.

The Half birthday card for Jada.
Jada's card is made from the "Life Delights" paper pack, again and oldie.

Half Birthday for Ryan!

These are all 3X6 cards.  They fit well in the standard envelope, and this size allowed me to use some of my scrap pieces of paper, thus all the oldies brought back to life!!
