Fun Birthday Cards

Happy Aloha Friday! I'm not used to working on Fridays - LOL! After this Friday, I'll have three Fridays in a row off! Whoo hoo! Today, I'm sharing with you a couple of fun birthday cards that I played around with. This first card is a pocket card that I cut out using my new Big Shot Pro...I took advantage of the awesome sale that J's had a couple weeks back selling this as a bundle with the pro and a big shot for one great price. Anyhoo, this die caught my eye as something that I would really make use of. The main cut out is a pocket and the then there's the card. Here's what the cuts look like:

The size of the card is the regular A2 size (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) and I did a whole bunch of layers to make it look nice! The sentiments inside the card are both by SU and are my favorite sentiments for birthday cards! On the pocket, the image is one by Whipper Snapper and the sentiment is by Hero Arts (I think).

Here's what it looks like when you slip the card into the pocket...I'll be making more of these fun cards so I'll be showing them to you when I'm done. Just wanted to share another shaker card that I made for a friend who "ordered" a card for his friend. They are both surfer dudes so this image was appropriate. I'm so happy that I'm making good use of this surfer image (by SU). The sentiment was computer generated. I cut the window using my new nestie die.

Thanks for looking today. I'm so glad it's the weekend. Now, I'll finally be able to visit some of your blogs that I've been wanting to do. It's so difficult and frustrating for me when I want to do something to relax and unwind, but can't because there's so many things that I really have to do before I can get to the relax and unwind part...and when I run out of time and don't get to even relax just for a bit, I want to cry! Okay, enough ranting...thanks for letting me get that off my chest! Have a wonderful weekend!

How cool you purchased the Big Shot Pro. When I come visit can I play with it.:) You did a great job in making the pocket card with your new machine. I can't wait to what other ones you make. You are a pro at making shaker cards. How long does it take you to make one?

These Shaker cards look like so much fun. I really have to try using beads instead of glitter.
