Belated Birthday Cards with Kara

I love creating and sending birthday cards. I think it makes people feel special! I know I do when someone remembers mine. I have a system that allows me to keep up with everyone's birthday and never miss one! With our recent move that system got disrupted. By the time I checked my birthday book I realized some cards were going to go out late! I needed a few cards quick, and they had to be so cute that the recipients wouldn't mind that that the wishes were belated!

This adorable set called Friends For All Seasons: Fall had the perfect images and sentiments to make my friends smile even if the cards arrive a few days late!

I kept the Copic coloring very simple, yet bright and fun. The sentiment says it all. If you know me at all you'll know that I do love cake {and cookies, and brownies, and cupcakes, and muffins, and...}!

You could stamp one of the sentiments on the outside and the other on the inside or both on the front as I've done here. I used the coordinating die set to cut out all of the images for a little dimension here and there.

I needed to get these cards in the mail, but if you have a bit more time, add some ink blending in the background or add to the scene using one of the WPlus9 Mountain or Tree border dies.

That's it for me today. Quick and simple belated birthday cards that will definitely still qualify you for a slice of birthday cake! Thankfully my system is back in order and I won't be late with any more cards...fingers crossed! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
