Birthday King For A Day

My grandson's 6th birthday is tomorrow. I received the ribbon from my sister; she said it was to stretch my card making skills. I used red sticky tape to adhere the three lengths of ribbon to the front (and inside) of the card. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folders King for a Day and Dotted Swiss.

The inside of the card is a cat colored to look just like his cat.

Birthday Happy

My son's birthday is this week and he really likes the brayered sunset cards. So, of course, I had to make him one!

I used photography paper again, which is somewhat difficult because it is so glossy. I have found slow, firm pressure in one direction allows the ink to spread out smoothly. The colors in the picture are not as rich as in the actual card.
