A Happy Birthday Card Parade!

Hello Friends!

Wanna know what happens when I get a kit + some gorgeous Timeless Twine? I bust out a TON of cards. These are my happiest crafting sessions :)

 I'm loving the woodgrain paper and toothpicks!

 This is a glassine envelope.

 Using vellum is a great way to tone down busy pattern papers! I had to use my scraps on this one so the vellum was handy!

I used a Basic Grey collection with coordinating embellies for all the cards. The Strawberry Truffle Timeless Twine matches perfectly!

Awesome cards, Mel! I love how you used the toothpicks and the vellum! For me it's so difficult to use patterned paper, so I need to write down some of this ideas ;-)

These are so cute! I'm making birthday cards out the wazoo this year! Andrew asked me to make them for all his students which is something like 150+.....I was hoping for a lot of summer birthdays, but then he said he's planning to give them to those kids on the last day of school......ahhhh!!!!
