8 Year Old Twin B'day Cards

Now here's something I don't do too often: make twin 8 year old birthday cards!!!! These cards evolved and turned out very nice - I know the Mom will be happy with them. Stamping and some Cricut die cutting involved. The Poodle one is for a girl and the Octopus one is for a boy. More details below:


Details on Jack's card: The pattern paper is a scrap I had left over from Target's $1 spot - with all the bright colors, it worked out great. The balloons, Octopus, Party Hat are cut using the Cricut Create a Critter cart. Use a Black fine line pen was used for the balloon string and the balloon. The cake stamp is from Stampendous called "Fifteen Candles". This stamp set is cool because the year and message can be easily changed. The cake is colored using SU Pens that co-ordinated with the paper. Jack's name: SU die cut letters. Streamers are randomly stamped using Black ink.
Inside Jack's card: EK Succes candle edge punch used on the top, use a yellow marker for the flames. Tie in the front pattern paper by using a scrap across the inside. Top it off with a co-ordinating die cut present.

Here's Emma's card: same layout but colors changed. Thank goodness the $1 Target Scrap pack had a pink version. The poodle was a perfect animal to be used for this card.
