Birthday Cards for special people

I made these cards this week for 2 birthday girls.  We are going to the party for one Birthday girl who is turning 50. No presents, so I thought I would make the card so I could put some lotto and scratchy tickets in. The Balloons and the Champagne Glass  I thought spell celebration.  Instead of an envelope I made a fancy sleeve so that the card was just poking out the top,making it so inviting to pull it out the take a peep. Inside the card I put a littlegift pocket to put the  tickets. ... something so pretty and so personal.

The Cup Cake card is for another friend who has a birthday on Sunday. It has been made with the new cup cake punch. I did enjoy doing this card and have a lot more ideas for this punch.  I teamed it with the Happy Birthday with a cherry on top stamp,  The Cup Cake Punch has the cherry included how lucky was that !!
 I also used the Stampin' Up Die , Top Note for the front  (folded over) and the reverse or the  inside.
Don't forget to 'Pretty up' your envelope too... Never miss the oportunity to use your creativity.
