Three cards for three special people

I needed three cards for some special friends of ours who have three birthdays within four days. They are friends from out of Auckland.  The husband and wife have their birthdays a day a part and their daughter is  is only two days before that.

The first card I made is for the daughter who is turning 11. I used the side spring style card, or as another card making friend calls it the diamond corner card.  I thought cupcakes, pink and purple is a good combination for a girl.

The second one is for my wonderful friend who I would love to see more, but since they live about 4 1/2 hours away, we only get to catch up a couple of times a year.  This is not actually a new card, but one I made a while ago (so you may recognise it from an earlier posting).  I made it when I went through a stage of making shaped cards and I have kept in my stash of cards.  I thought it would be a lovely, special card for her.

Lastly the husband is turning 40 so I thought I would make a twisted card as it creates a pocket inside, perfect to hold a voucher which we sent him for his milestone birthday. 


Here is the pocket it creates inside.

By the way, I am holding a class this coming weekend on the North Shore which will show you how to make this twisted card, although it will be in a Christams theme.  Please contact me if you are interested in coming.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Have a great week.
