March Birthdays

It is time to share the birthday cards I sent out last month. The first is this happy party dog card. Hubby got me this stamp for Valentine's Day. It's a real keeper and so is he!
Next up we have a funky fold card that came from a kit.  Here it is closed. 
And open so you can see how it all goes together. It is kind of a zig zaggy shape with the right side tucking under the left when it is closed.
And here's one last delicate card that I managed to squeeze out just in time before heading into the belated zone. I really wanted to layer punched borders because my friend does it all the time and it looks fabulous. I gave it a whirl and lookie--I can do it too!
The Fine Print: Tutu & Cupcake by Penny Black, Facebook Your Birthday and bling stickers from Club Scrap, Delicate Vase by Imaginations and border punch by Martha.  Other stuff from my stash.

Loved all 3, and that's a very interesting fold. (I'm impressed by folds!)Loved the cute doggie. DH has good taste. Yep better keep him too. Loved the lacy borders on #3 - great transparent coloring on the vase BTW. The quad punch trim dressed this pretty floral up so very nicely. Well done for all 3 cards PJ. TFS & Hugs

These are great! That funky fold had me looking again to see what the heck you did. I really like the ruffled look of the punched layers.

I am sure your friends loved each of these cards!! When is your birthday?
I really like the complexity of your folded card. And I too have been wanting to do layered scallops for a couple of years and never did get at that technique. You rocked it all on your lonesome again!

Great cards, but that last one really grabbed my attention with the beautiful flowers & lacey background--love!
