Two birthday cards to make today for my brother and sister-in-law. Both will be sent to Ireland, so I needed the designs to be flat for posting.
I've had the pearlised, lightly embossed blue card for a couple of years. It really the most beautiful shade of blue and I decided I've been stroking it long enough and it needed to be used! I cut off about 4cms from the right hand side of the front of the base card. The border is cut with a Memory Box 'Kensington Border' die and attached to the inside of the card. I added a thin strip of the blue card to the outside. I had a snippet of embossed card left from the card I made in my last post, so attached this to the main part of the front of the card. The Stitched Hexagons are by Memory Box - a birthday present from last week.
The next photo shows the card open.

My second card is for my brother. As he lives near the sea, I decided on a nautical theme. I had some of the blue card left, I used it on this card as well.
The backing paper is by Anna Marie Designs. The Little Claire 'Silhouette Lighthouse' stamp is stamped in Versafine 'Onyx'. I used Memory Box 'Stitched Square' dies to mat and layer the image and the waves were die cut with a Memory Box 'Oceana Border' die. A punched anchor and sea shell finished off my card.
