Boy and girl birthday cards with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about making a wish. We usually make a wish before blowing out the birthday candles, but you could create something with a wish in mind. We look forward to see what you create!

For me it's birthday season at the moment and therefor also birthday card making season. The theme of this week is an enormous help to me. That's why I made two cards this time. One for a birthday girl and one for a birthday boy.


I started with the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Frame die. I've cut off the bottom piece so that it became a standard frame instead of a polaroid frame. With different types of Washi tape I taped it in place. But before I did, I first cut down 2 Found Relatives cards to make them fit inside the frame. (It's also fun to fill them with pictures of the real birthday boy or girl.)


Both cards I made the same way. Only the colors are different and the girls card I've done more stamping with the Meadow Lark stamp set.



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
