Birthday Card Ministry

It was time again to make cards for the Birthday Card ministry at our church.  We meet about once a quarter and usually make 10 cards of 4 different designs.

Since the new catalog was getting ready to come out when I made these up, I tried to use retiring paper and accessories.

  • Stamps – Define Your Life, Manhattan
  • Ink – Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette
  • Paper – Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette textured, & Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
  • Accessories – Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon


I have seen this cute little dress all over the place and had to make one!  It is so cute and so simple. This was made with the Scallop Circle Die.  Cut out your circle, then cut away two sides. I copied this template from my friend Amanda. (Check out her blog) Of course you can change the waist size. :0)

I used the paper I cut out of the dress to “dress” up the inside.  Ha-ha!


When I first saw these birds I thought “that’s nice”, well now I just love them.  Aren’t they sooo cute?

  • Paper – Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, & Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper

Ok, so I know it’s really pink…This would also make a great baby girl card.
