Bits and Pieces 4 - Unisex Birthday Cards

Every now and again I feel that I need to address the huge pile of scraps that I have in my drawer and last weekend I had that urge again.

This is the packet that I dug out of my drawer, along with some bright plain card stock scraps and a couple of small pieces of patterned paper.
I swear that octopus has been taunting me for months, now I have a new printer I can print out a punny sentiment and finally say goodbye to it. Unfortunately it didn't make the cut in this round, maybe next time, although I need to learn when to put something in the bin and move on.

I managed to make quite a few cards, although for this post I will focus on some birthday cards, that on reflection would be suitable for both a boy or a girl, finally, I need to build up my stock pile. All

I used the letters from another scraps project and popped up the stars on foam tape, I love the star washi tape, more on that in another post.
 Again, my favourite foam tape, the small striped embellishment was a happy accident when I trimmed the paper.
I cut the frame with my silhouette using the rectangle tool and welded the word happy to the bottom of the frame, not an original idea I grant you, but I was pleased I managed to make it on my own ;)

I was left with these pieces and knew I could make just one more card.

I added a small glassine bag and used decorative scissors on the edge, filled it with some confetti and taped it to the card with some washi tape, a couple of stars, a ticket and a bit of stitching and it was done!

It feels so good to create more than one card at a time, I have another 4 cards to share from the same scraps bag, I'll be back with that on Thursday.

Thanks for reading,
