Birthday Card Workshop

These cards are from my Birthday Card Workshop. There are 24 of them. I used various paperpacks and stamp sets from Close to My Heart. I used the Close to My Heart AP Cricut Cartridge to create and decorate most of the cards. It was a lot of hard work, but I really loved creating these cards! Enjoy!

*I have a few kits left. If you are interested, email me for   

I got the idea of the "Bra Card" from a fellow consultant, Tracey Saunders. Her blog is When I saw hers,  I decided to make it as a birthday card and have it open up to a sagging chest and a not so flattering bra. It still makes me giggle. Hope you enjoy my sense of humor!

This card was inspired by a fellow consultant, but I can't locate her name. 
If any of you know CTMH consultants know who it is please let me know and I will post it. 
I used this concept to create the cupcake, gift box, and the birthday cake.These are great for gift cards.
