Birthday Cards by Debby Visser

Feels like forever since I posted here!
We had a very busy Christmas/New Year season, which left me with NO motivation or desire to create, or even step into my scrapbook room.
But I am happy things are back to normal and I am back to playing!
How have all of you been? Have you been creating or have you been like me and just too 'pooped' to play?

Today the card challenge was birthdays.
Birthday cards are always good to have on hand. For me I have lots of 'lady' birthday cards. You know flowers and frills, but kid birthday cards or male birthday cards are in short supply.
That is my goal this month!
So I have started with this cute little card for younger children/babies.

The bear paper I found at my local dollar store, the little squares of bears on one side and paw prints on the other; sooo cute!

When I create cards I always try to make 2 at the same time. I have the supplies out anyways and it puts more cards in the stash. Usually I try to change them a little, but sometimes I make them identical.

Here is another set I created

I used fabric and my big shot to cut out those flowers, then stitched a button in the middle. Very simple and easy.

I hope you get the chance to play along and create a few cards. And if you do, don't forget to share with us!
I am off to create some 'manly' cards! lol
Enjoy your day


  1. I love how you use fabric, Debby - and your bows are perfect!! Glad you're feeling the creative urge again! :)
