April Birthdays

Both of our sons-in-law have April birthdays, although a week apart. We just couldn't be more blessed with the husbands of both of our daughters... they really are like sons in the family!  Here are the cards that I made to celebrate each of their special days...

I took this design directly from Pinterest knowing how much Chris loves to play his guitar. I changed it up in very minor ways, really just copying the awesome design... I used thread for the strings, and brads to hold them down. The crumb cake color was enhanced by shading with distress ink, wild honey. I also used the happy birthday stamp from an SU stamp set.

The inside and the envelope both used a little star from a random set, but it was my first try with chalk ink. I love it and can't wait to try the bold colors again. They are definitely on my wish list for new supplies!

Steve's birthday gives me another golfer so I used the design from February. Again it is almost an exact copy from a Pinterest card and I used DSP paper for the first card layer and built the landscape from there. I used the small dot embossing folder for the golf ball and embossed the sentiment with white to add a little texture to the card. 

I also have a good friend with an April birthday, sent a card but forgot the picture... Oh well! I will remember next year...
