Retro Birthday Cards

Looking for my Shopping Our Stash post for this week?? Please click HERE

I've been having some fun this week with one of my SCRAPTURES card kits making some retro birthday cards featuring the It's a Celebration Collection Kit by Carta Bella.

Here are two cards I made using a piece of the DP that had these cool retro / vintage images on them.

I was born in the 70's so for some reason these images really appealed to me, especially the bottom one...we had such awesome birthday parties as kids...everyone would get dressed up in our fancy party frocks LOL

Shite I used to make these cards:

  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • It's a Celebration Collection Kit (Carta Bella)
  • Chevron washi tape (We R Memory Keepers)

I love the images and the clean designs allow them to be the centre of attraction!

Darling birthday cards, Donna!! The retro images are too cute!! I can remember a couple of b-day parties that I had as a little girl in the 70's and yes--we dressed up and the cakes were always so fun and frilly & girlie :) Fabulous cards!! XOXO-Shari
