Sophie & Lizzy's birthdays

Good Morning all and welcome to a new week.  I hope you didn't get too much snow at the weekend, we had it very wet and windy down here.  

Today i am sharing the cards i made for my 2 nieces birthdays, Sophie had hers at the weekend and its Lizzy's tomorrow.  They are growing up so fast now. 

I had hoped to make them penny slider cards but ran out of time so dug out my sizzix flip it die sets, so quick cards but think the girls will love flipping them. 

Showing it closed up.  Red pearl card for the base, floral paper, computer printed sentiment die cut to fit the flip circle.  

Flipped Open which shows the otherside of the circle where i added the girls ages.  I picked up on the yellow in the paper and made some flowers, blue leaves and a pearl to finish.  I added glitter glue highlights as Sophie loves glitter.

Just showing the back of the card, i used a less patterned paper from the pad so can easily be written on.

and onto Lizzy's

Russet brown cardbase.  She loves owls and her bedroom is owl themed so found this fab paper.  I found this lovely chipboard owl in my stash too which i coloured with green paint to match the paper. 

Showing it flipped open

and again the back of the card using a less patterned paper from the pad. 


and then i made them up a simple house mouse card, i found these images id printed off a long time ago for the house mouse joanna sheen CD-rom

5x5 white cardblank.  I first decoupaged the image and added glossy accents to the bubbles.  Matted onto pink glitter card.  I then matted bubble pattern paper onto more pink glitter card and added to the card front.  Die cut sentiment. 

Same as before, using this lovely dandelion image, and gold mirri card.  I added frosted lace glitter glue to the dandelion seeds. 

Items used:
Echo Park 'Simple Life' papers (floral)
Carta Bella 'A perfect autumn' papers (Owl)
Joanna Sheen House Mouse Triple CD-Rom
Sizzix 'Circle Flip-it' 559171
