Today I’m sharing 2 very fun and easy cards with you, both birthday cards, one is for a girl & the other a boy. Now I don’t know about you but I’ve noticed that when it comes to girl themes, many times the color scheme is heavy on the pink! But when I was growing up (and still today), I was a big fan of all the colors in the crayon box! And the brighter – the better!! So this first card is for a girl you know who thinks bright hearts and bright colors are awesome! I thought of my 2 nieces that live far away from me and thought that an envelope full of hearts floating their way might be a cute idea ;O) So I pulled out my sweet pack of EO Bright Heart Enamel Shapes and matched the CardStock to them for a bright cheery card!
Here a list of the supplies:
Stampin Up!: “Phrases for a Friend” Stamp Set, YoYo Yellow, Pacific Point, Elegant Eggplant & Poppy Parade CardStock
Other Supplies: Green CardStock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, studiog Alphabet Stamp Set, Black Archival Ink Pen
For the inside I wanted it to look like the hearts were getting closer (and their just too cute not to use up), so I added a bunch more in a floaty kinda way ;O)

For the boys card I wanted something completely different so I decided a grunge looking card would do the trick and I had the perfect embellishments to match the perfect pack of paper to do it! Combining the two and distressing the heck out of the paper gave me a quick and easy grunge card that’s perfect for any boy you know that wants to be a Rock Star lol!
Here are a list of the supplies used:
Other supplies: “Like Father Like Son” CardStock by Fancy Pants Designs, “Phrases for a Friend” Stamp Set & Basic Black & Pear Pizazz CardStock by Stampin Up!, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Pop-Up Squares
I decided to keep the flow going to the inside of the card so I used some Stampin Up! Pear Pizazz CardStock and one of the border stickers from the dp pack. I then added the star enamel shapes to dress up the sentiment and some of the smaller enamel dots to make the sticker pop even more.
