Anniversary Card

I normally don't go for bling, but my daughter Hannah does. When she was a teenager she signed her name with STAR as her middle name and then drew a star at the end of her name. No, "star"  is not her middle name, she just wanted to bling things up a little bit.
So for her 2nd anniversary card I HAD to have bling.  I copied the idea from a card I made for a challenge a few days ago. Her wedding colors were yellow, black and white, so I wanted to use those colors for their card.

I used DCWV "Glitter Stack" for the piece cut diamonds and the black printed  paper mat and "Lemon Flower" stack for the yellow paper. The base is Bazzill Smoothies "Flintstone". I cut the hearts with Spellbinders "Classic Scallop Hearts" set using the smallest die in the set. The rhinestone bling is from Recollections.

Birthday Card for Adult Son

This is a fun card for my son who is turning 27 this month. When he was a little toddler, he had one of these little tikes cars and practically lived in it. He recently bought a car so I wanted to do a car theme anyway. I tucked some money behind the gas pump and wrote free where the cost of the gas usually rings up. I think he will
especially like that.

This is an S Fold card.
Recipe: The paper and the robot in the car are from DCWV "Monsters and Robots".
The green is from Recollections 12 x 12 value pack.
The base is 5"x 12" folded in half and then the front is folded back in half again, making it  5" x 6". It fit in a standard  5" x 7" card envelope.
The car is cut @ 4" from Cricut Lite "B is for Boy" and the gas pump is cut @ 4" from "Disney Cars". I cut the gas pump base out three times one in yellow, one in black and one in gray and then altered them by hand. I cut the pieces so to cover the hose with black and nosel with gray. The Sentiment is from CARDS TV STAMPS.
The sentiment on the gas pump is from Hero Arts. The car and the sentiment are on foam tape.
