Raiding free papers

I have a small collection of papers free from various magazines over the last couple of years. I needed two birthday cards and decided to raid these alone, thus reducing my options, to hopefully make these cards quickly.

This is what I made:

OK, the last card is mainly from a relatively cheap pack of paper from the Works, but the “Happy Birthday” is from the same free sheet as the other cake greeting above. I have mixed papers from different sets, but they seem to work. 4 cards in an hour is quick for me!

Now which two should I use first?

Papercut Cards

A few months back, I treated myself to a craft knife. I haven’t used it much, but was quite pleased with the cupcake card I made with it, so decided to try more papercutting.

When making the cupcake card, I cut the image out of paper and stuck it to a card blank. I was feeling more adventurous second time round and cut the image out of the card blank instead and stuck coloured paper behind it.

This card is for a birthday.

And I used this one to RSVP to a wedding invite. I’m really pleased with them both and will definitely make cards this way again. It is quite effective and relatively quick.
