Gina's Designs DT Project - Cards

Happy Thursday!! Today I have for you two cards I made for a double celebration this past Sunday; my mom's birthday and my niece's graduation from college!
For the first card, I took a piece of scrap paper, inked it with Walnut Stain and attached to the card base. I embossed the "happy birthday" and used my watercolor crayons on the balloons.I glued the "happy birthday" to the card and the balloons where attached with pop dots.
The second card is my graduation card. I first stenciled purple and yellow chalk to the card base.
The chipboard pieces were embossed before placing them on double mat. Both pieces of the mat were edged with ink. I attached all three chipboard pieces with pop dots.
I also took a small stamp that said "congratulations" and randomly stamped all over the front of the card. I used VersaMark - Dazzle for that. I know the pictures do not show it, but I did like the way it turned out.
Here is a look at them side by side!
