June's Sincerely for Kiwi Lane (a.k.a. #5 & #6)

It's the third Wednesday of the month and that means Kiwi Lane's Sincerely is up on their Facebook page and their blog.  And here's my extended version of what is already posted :)

Happy Birthday Pocket/Tag
Finished card size: 5x7
This card is just a flat card (meaning it doesn't open like a traditional card), but it can still have a hidden greeting!
 The pocket is a 4x4 piece of vellum with a scalloped piece of paper on the edge.  So here's how I did it: Cut and inked the vellum.  Traced the scallop and cut out and then trimmed down to 4" long.  I sewed the scalloped paper to the vellum with a zig zag stitch  then sewed three sides of the vellum to the base piece, leaving the top open.  Adhere any ribbon or rick rack and then any other embellishments.
 The tag is stamped so the sentiment shows through the pocket and then I added some small rhinestones  to the pocket while the tag was in the pocket so it matches up to the sentiment.  So can I just say I LOVE this card?!

Templates used: Adorn 3A, 4x4 Photo, Tiny Accents 2T, Tags 5, Tiny Wildflower 1T
Supplies: Patterned paper (Authentique's Splendid collection), ribbon (May Arts, American Crafts), clip (Making Memories), brad (American Crafts), flowers (Imaginisce, Basic Grey), rhinestones (My Mind's Eye), sentiment stamp (Studio G), ink (Ranger)

Happy Birthday Cupcake
Finished card size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
This is just kind of a fun and bright birthday card with lots of layers!  The cupcake cup is half of the large hexagon from the Tiny Shapes set with a little bit of embossed lines with a touch of ink to make them more visible.  My sentiment is hand written, but you could easily stamp yours :)

Templates used: Tags 7, Tiny Shapes 4T & 6T, Celebrate 3 & 5
Supplies:  card base (Craft Essentials), patterned paper (My Mind's Eye), rhinestones (Doodlebug, American Crafts), brad (Doodlebug), stick pins (Fancy Pants), twine (Divine Twine, Jillibean Soup), ink (Ranger), glitter glue (Ranger).

I had so much fun doing these cards... I see more being made in the near future!!

Happy Scrapping!
