MFT Previews, Day 6 – Happy Birthday, Boys and Girls

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 6 of July previews with My Favorite Things! Only one more day until all of our fab releases are available!

I have two fun birthday cards to share today, one for a girl and one for a boy. My first uses new Jumbo Party Hat and Happy Birthday Die-namics.

I used Happy Birthday Die-namics to die-cut letters from Banana Split, Sour Apple, Berrylicious and Razzle Berry card stock.  The hat is raised on foam tape, as is the two-layer poof at the top.

Inside, I added “2” from By the Numbers and “u” from By the Letters Uppercase Die-namics.  The swirls, from Party Balloons, were stamped in Razzle Berry, Berrylicious and new Banana Split ink.

My second card, more on the masculine side, uses Party Balloons stamp set and Die-namics and the negative space left after die-cutting “happy birthday” from Hot Fudge card stock.  To add a bit of color, I switched out the Hot Fudge circular centers of the letters with Berrylicious and Tangy Orange.

The Party Balloons were stamped in Berrylicious, Hot Fudge and new Tangy Orange ink.  Each balloon is “tied” to the letter openings below with the HB2U balloon raised on foam tape.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from new Birthday Greetings (Lisa Johnson Designs), adding confetti stamped in Tangy Orange, Berrylicious and Hot Fudge ink.
