I tried something a little bit different with these cards....rocking cards with rocking horses on them! I love this image and thought that it'd be a good one for a small child's birthday card. I cut a large circle (using FIT TO PAGE) from white card. If you don't have the Big Bug, you can use a dinner plate. I scored and folded it in half and covered the front half with patterned paper. I added a white punched border trimmed with ribbon, bow and layered bloom. I cut the rocking horse & rider from coloured glittercard with a white shadow then adhered it to the card. You have to get the positioning of the horse right otherwise the card will tip to one side. I cut 'Boy' & 'Girl' from white glittercard and 'birthday' from coloured paper. I adhered Girl/Boy with foam pads & 'birthday' was adhered flat. Self-adhesive pearls added to the BOY/GIRL words finish the cards.
Rocking horse & rider-A Child's Year (there is also a similar image on Nursery Rhymes)
Birthday-Calligraphy (Happy Birthday with the 'Happy' cut off)
Thanks for looking!
