Cards I've Been Making Lately: March Birthdays, Easter, and April Birthdays too.

 I have had a lot of fun in my craftroom lately.  In the past month I've made a good dozen scrapbook pages, a new spring wreath for our front door (which I shared yesterday!), and nearly a dozen cards as well.

Today I just wanted to focus on the cards. 

We had a few birthdays in March:

I played with pattern paper and ribbon for this fun rainbow card. 


I used more patterned paper for this 18th birthday card


I used my new otter stamps and blender pens to make this cute birthday card.


I made 5 Easter cards- one for each of my boys and husband as well as my mom. 


Can you see the glitter on the sheep?  




I enjoyed heat embossing these images! I haven't used my heat gun in a long time. 

I also made a fun shaker card!




I found a few YouTube videos on using paper scraps with die cuts and had a fun time making some birthday cards for friends and family that have April birthdays.



I tried out a new and unusual fold for this birthday card.




After watching those videos I have so many more techniques I want to try and lots of products I added to my wishlists too.
