By two happy birthdays, I mean that today is the birthday of 2 family members. I don't have 2 cards to show you. But, the card I do have is different from my usual fare.
The first birthday belongs to our kitten, now cat, Gideon. He is 1 year old today!
Here he is as a baby. Awww. He is so cute.
Then he discovered that the back of the sofa makes a great recliner! Here he is as an adolescent.
And still snoozin'. Here he is at 1 year old.
One last photo, just so you know he doesn't sleep all the time. :)
This is what happens when your children grow up and move away. Your pets become your kids. Lol!
And the other birthday today, belongs to my dear, sweet, sister-in-law - mother of 5, soon to be 6 children! Today's birthday card belongs to her.
My inspiration was the Christmas card found Here. I originally saw it on Pinterest. It caught my attention because it is so simple, but so Wow!
I designed my own card front using the Mocha Morning designer paper.
The Wow comes when you open up the card and the presents pop up! I LOVE pop up cards.
I made a template first with scrap paper. Then once, the packages were the size I liked, I used Very Vanilla cardstock and covered them with more Mocha Morning dsp and ribbon. So easy. So fun!
Edit (4/12): Due to the amount of requests I have had for directions/tutorial, I will be posting a tutorial soon. Thanks for all of the positive feedback!
