Super Quick Birthday Cards

I was inspired to make this set by the talented Dawn Griffith (see her post here).  These were so quick and simple to make and are great for that quick little card to add to a birthday pressie.

The cards are 3" x 3" and I used the Designer Frames Embossing Folder to create the embossed oval.  The ovals are punched using the Extra Large Oval Punch from Mocha Morning DSP (as everyone probably knows by now - one of my favorite DSP's).  The Happy Birthday is stamped and punched using the Word Window Punch, and I added a teeny flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a Pearl Basic Jewel.  As you can see I also decorated the flaps of my Mini Square envelopes to match.

I also made a little bag to store them all in.  This was another quick and simple project, designed to co-ordinate with the cards.  I used the Fancy Favor Die to create the bag, matched the front and created a handle for it.
