Birthday Cards

I signed up for a Masculine Birthday swap at Convention, and had to come up with 25 cards.  What was I thinking?!?  I only had one non-retiring birthday stamp at the time, and nothing that was anymore masculine than this cake! So I ended up with these, figuring the colors were relatively non-feminine!  Actually the same layout can be used for any birthday, depending on the printed paper and colors used.  This particular paper pack is retiring tomorrow, but there are always MORE! I colored the cakes with Copics and/or water-based markers, just depending on what I could find to match the colors in the printed paper, and added a bit of Journey glaze to the candle flame and the berries/dots/whatever.  Simple, fast, and fun - I suspect this design will show up in class one of these days, updated with fun new paper.

Love these different ideas. I am saving all your cards. Do you post them on Pinterest? You should and put your website in the write up.
