Birthday Cards with Concord & 9th!

Hi crafty friends!  I'm posting today while my kids are out playing in the approximately 18" of snow we've received over the last 24 hours.   Today is a snow day....yay!

I wanted to play with some new Concord & 9th goodies I received last month.   I absolutely adore the Happy Hues watercolor notecards, and they were my starting point.   I stamped the birthday cake and sentiments  from Eat Cake & Celebrate  on vellum (die cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die) using Staz-On ink.   I colored the birthday cakes in on the back side of the vellum using a Faber-Castell white Big Brush Marker and Copics in graduating shades that matched the notecards.   I absolutely love the opacity of the white Big Brush marker!   I added some gold and silver sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and adhered the vellum to the note cards, hiding my adhesive behind the sentiments and sequins.  I love how they turned out!




  1. Kimberly, these cards are too cute! I love the Concord & 9th notecards (I have them, too!) and the image and sentiment on vellum is such a cool effect! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

  2. These are gorgeous - love how you used those notecards - so pretty.

    Thanks for playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
