July Birthday Cards

Now that everyone has received their July birthday cards, I'll post pictures of them for all to see.
I really enjoyed making these cards and hope the ladies are still enjoying them.


I just love Joyful Tilda! She is colored with Copics and mounted on a teapot cutout.  I googled "teapot stamps" and this one was perfect for what I wanted.  And the basic shape echos the teapot Tilda is carrying on her tray!
The papers are from the Tea House pack that my friend Lillian sent me.  For a real feast for your eyes, check out Lillian's blog here.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbon was another gift from Lillian.
Happy Birthday, Sonia Ferreira!

Here is the open view of her card.

Joyful Tilda in green was the second card I did for July birthdays.
Everything was the same, except for the green colors.  This paper is also from the Tea House pack.  The ribbon from Lillian.
Happy Birthday, Patricia Veneman.

The paper on the base came from DCWV Sweet stack from several years ago.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Tilda with Heart Socks was my choice for this card.

The paper I used for this card was from K&Co. Handmade stack.
The felt butterfly was from Lillian.  The ribbon was from my stash and carries out the butterfly theme.
The corners are actually photo mounts, again from Lillian.  She has sent me some of the most gorgeous embellishments and I'm trying to use them!
Tilda was colored with Copics and mounted on a scalloped circle cut with a Nestabilities die and sponged with SU Pool Party.

Happy Birthday, Crystal Thomas!

Here is the inside of Crystal's card.  The butterflies and photo corners were from Lillian.

And for the last of the July cards.


The French Tea Party table and Cafe Chair just seemed to go well together for an elegant birthday celebration.  The paper is from the Tea House tablet.
The lace and corners are from my stash, probably from Wild Orchid Crafts.  A tiny blue rose decorates the table.
The pieces were colored with Copics.


Happy New Year Tilda is celebrating Adeline Soetanto's birthday with her.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Gina K.  The pearls are from my stash.

That's it for my July birthday cards.  I hope you have enjoyed looking at them and wishing a very happy birthday to the girls.
