Hoppy Birthday Cards with my Cuttlebug

Here are a couple of birthday cards I completed recently. I LOVE this frog die from Cuttlebug! (I use him all the time!) For this pink card I used the frog die from "GARDEN CREATURES" 2"x2" CB Die Set, The Crown from CB Kids Fairy Alphabet Die Set, the Make A Wish from the Happy Birthday CB embossing folders set. I sanded the embossed element to help it pop off the page. I used punches and a jewel for the flowers and ribbon to delineate the patterned and plain card stock.
I used my CB GARDEN CREATURES Die to cut the frog and used a lil pink scrap for the tongue. I used a CB embossing folder for the message Happy Birthday and sanded it to help make it stand out. I used the HIPPY CHICK alphabet die set for the name. I used some punches for the balloons and the stars.
I even used the embossing folders to dress up the envelopes... I'm not sure if you can mail them like this so best to use that only for hand-delivered cards! ( :


  1. great cards - I emboss my envelopes all the time - no problem with them being mailed like that!

  2. I know this is an old post but I just wanted to share with everyone at A Spoon Full of Sugar for their pink and brown challenge( This is just for fun! Thanks ( :
