30th birthday x 2!

I got in a groove the other night and made 4 cards (mind you I was up till midnight ;-)
Two were for a birthday party we will be attending this weekend...DH's cousin and his wife are both turning 30.

Here is her card:

I stamped the alpha directly on the madeira paper and added a dot of liquid pearls to each polka dot. The card looks soooo elegant IRL.

Stamps: A muse polka dot alpha
Paper: SU barely banana and basic black, a muse pink madeira
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir
Accessories: PTI twill ribbon (berry blush), SU mat pack & paper piercer, Ranger liquid pearls (silver pearl)

and here is his card:

This stamp set rocks for boys...I will be getting a lot of use out of it for sure! I made double score lines on my card, leaving enough room in between for two rows of the rounded square stamps from the set. I initially tried to line them up using my SAMJ (which I love for perfect positioning), but it really didn't work out in this case. I had much better luck just eyeballing! The gear stamps were cut out, and with the two small gears, I added a 1/4" circle of the same colour under the brad (I thought there was too much white space inside the gear otherwise!). I suppose if it hadn't been midnight, I could have rigged it so the gear actually spin...that would be too cool!

Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs Gizmos and Gears
Paper: SU Basic Black, Taken with Teal, PTI white
Ink: SU Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore
Accessories: MM brads, Scor-Pal, Dymo labeler, SU 1/4" circle punch
