I've gotten better about sending birthday cards but oops, I think I missed a couple in the busy-ness this month. However, I did manage to get this 9th birthday card to my niece. It's a side step card made easy with the ODBD die. To get the pattern on the candles, I left the paper in the die and used distress oxides to sponge through the openings. It's great for embossing but I like this version of it even more.
The second is a quick and simple shaker card using the round balloon die for my shaker element.
