I-phone birthday card …

My new son-in-law is an IT developer and writes computer programs for phone apps, so this fun i-phone birthday card was just perfect for him …

Inspired by Melissa’s card, I used pieces of world spectacular designer series paper to mat and layer the card, and cut pieces of cardstock to make the i-phone.

I stamped the “screensaver” with the clockworks stamp set, and to make a random pattern across the horizontal strip.

Making a matching envelope to fit the square card was really easy with the simply scored scoreboard and diagonal plate…

I added a soda pop top to act as a closure, with a little cupcake from the itty bitty bits set stamped in matching ink.

Finally, I added a basics designer button tied with a length of whisper white baker’s twine in a knot, and 3 mini brads.

iPad birthday card …

The guy I made this card for is so hard working – taking holidays very rarely – but he does occasionally take a little time out for his passions … football, cars and gadgets!  So when he recently had a big birthday I made him an iPad card, using stamp images from different Stampin’ Up stamp sets…

I stamped each image in early espresso ink onto a coloured cardstock square, and then adhered to a basic black cardstock base with tombow multi-purpose glue, and added some highlights with a white gel pen.

Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!

cardstock: basic black, pumpkin pie, bashful blue, certainly celery, poppy parade, pink pirouette, daffodil delight, wisteria wonder; stamp sets: happiest birthday wishes hostess set, open sea, circle circus, fox and friends, party this way, schoolbook serif alphabet (retired), sweetheart, artistic etchings, just soccer (retired); ink: early espresso; punches: square, circle; accessories: tombow adhesive, white gel pen.
