June-July Birthdays

There are several late June early July birthdays that are jammed together! Will, on the 27th, Cathi the 29th, Lyla Kate the 30th, Vic July 2nd, and John on the 9th!

So I forget to take pictures of a couple of them.... I made Will's card in the Online Card Class, with the zipper die, which he'll enjoy as an eight-year-old really into telling jokes and riddles. Notice 7 frogs on the front....... and I put one on the inside!

I continue to love the zipper dies! It's such fun to stamp, planning the kid's reaction when they unzip...

I did hear that Will's reaction was fun! The answer is ... your age!

This beach card goes to a friend that could certainly use a beach day break for her birthday...

This was another card that I made during the Mask-er-ade card class. The details will be found on that posting.

I did make another card for our granddaughter. Lyla Kate who turned 4 on June 30th. I forgot to take a picture of the card before I sent it! It was a shaker card with a star front turned into a shaker. She asked for a Barbie Glam Glitter doll... I have to admit she had to show me online what that is... So I knew the sparkles would get her in the shaker. It also had LOTS of fours!

This card I sent to our friend in assisted living, although we still think of him as our next door neighbor. Vic turns 94 this year and is in remarkable good health. The details for this card also appeared in the Mask-er-ade class. 

Last but not least, is my birthday card for John. He won't be here for his birthday due to a golfing trip with our son . So...

... very appropriate. I can't think of anything John would rather be doing than golfing! The card is made from lots of die cutting. I saw a similar card on the Internet somewhere, although I think it was teeing off instead of putting.

I am really loving the stitched dies to give the card front a clean look. Although you can't tell in the picture, the lighter green die cut is attached with fun foam so it is a level above the blue, and the darker green sits inside of it. he flag pole actually moves giving some nice dimension on the front. The golf ball is embossed with the small dots folder, so it really looks like a golf ball!

Happy birthday John!
