Birthday cards

Here are a couple of cards I made recently.  The first layout has been posted before but it looks very different with a colour change and the numbers added.  The dies are Memory Box.  I've covered the numbers with gold UTEE and only partially melted it.



For this one I've used a Gecko Galz collage sheet, corrugated card with gesso spread across it, a Spellbinders label die, Tim Holtz rosette and a couple of pieces of paper from my stash.

They're both gorgeous Carol.

They are very different but I love them both. I do like the effect of partially melted gold UTEE. I treated myself to a few Tim Holtz Distress Markers the other day. I think they are going to be very useful.

Great cards, Carol - I especially love the second one, fabulous corrugated texture, and those beautiful delicate images with the kraft papers... yum!

two very different cards but both fab....like the partially melted EP on the numbers, adds a bit of texture/interest.

Very nice cards, both. I agree the fist one looks completely different using another colour.
Great elements on the second.

A couple of lovely cards Carol. I love the corrugated card on the second one and the lovely GG image.

Gecko Galz have a blog hop at the end of the month with lots of freebie collage sheets up for grabs.
