Fun Birthday Cards!

 I have 2 birthday cards to share today!  I put these together over the weekend for my grandsons who are celebrating their birthday this week.

Happy Birthday Josh and Logan!
I used a Spellbinders Grand LF-161 Labels One to cut the DP background for both cards.  If you haven't seen these Grand die templates, check them out on the Spellbinders website!  They're awesome!  I used the largest (#6) of the six die templates.

The robot is from an older Hero Arts clear set called Far Out Holiday.  I think it worked great for a birthday robot!  The greeting said "have a far out holiday".  I masked off "holiday" when I inked the stamp, then stamped just "have a far out".  From the Hero Arts Happy Greetings set, I stamped "birthday".  I added the exclamation point with a black marker.  DP is from Cosmo Cricket. 
I used Spellbinders Labels Eight for the robot and Labels Eleven for the yellow mat.  The darker DP mat is simply a rectangle with the corners rounded.
THe buttons and ribbon on both cards is from Fancy Pants.

For the Dino card, I chose stamps from Penny Black's Dino Party transparent set.  Such cute little characters for a boy!
I stamped them with Memento Black Tuxedo ad colored with Copic markers. The photo shows all the colors from both cards.

I cut around the dinos with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen.
The red mat behind is Labels Eleven. 
The greeting is from Hero Arts Happy Greetings set.  I freehand cut the shape and added a red mat.
Both cards are 4" X 7 1/8". I used a 1/2" corner rounder on the corners of each card base.

In this photo, you can see where I made the fold on the Grand Labels One.  I folded the shorter section to the back of the card.  The Labels One shown is the largest in the set.  The other sizes would work for smaller cards!
Look for the Grand Spellbinders to be in stores soon! 

I hope I've inspired you in some way today!  Have fun creating!
I'm so happy to be back in my creative mode!!!

Judy - great idea about wrapping the die cut around the card. Instant color on the front and back!
Love the bright colorful papers. Happy Birthday Josh and Logan.
