Happy new year! I hope your new year celebrations, whether lively or quiet, were happy ones. My family had dinner and game night, which was just right.
Today I'm going to share a couple of kids' birthday cards. They use the same focal image and almost the same layout, but one is a girly version, and one is more boyish.

Can you see the similarities in the layout? The cards are mirror images of each other, and I changed the shape of the focal image. On the boy card I stamped a sentiment multiple times across the strip of card stock. For the girly card I embossed the strip and then added a greeting stamped on a little flag.
I think both of these cards turned out cute, but I'm a little partial to the girl version. Which do you like better?
Thanks for stopping by!
