Some Welsh Birthday Cards
January and February sees several family members having their birthdays therefore it’s time to get busy makeing some Welsh “Penblwydd Hapus” birthday cards after the Christmas and New Year season is past.
Today I’ve got two cards I made for my mother and myself to give to my niece. They were made using some items from one of the Hunkydory Decolarge kits I’d used when makeing the variety of Welsh Birthday Cards for an order that I’ve started to show you previously. But these have been put together in a slightly different layout with some difference in the layers I chose to use for the decoupage (I did say in my previous posts how I wasn’t using all the layers provided for the decoupage and therefore getting a second topper out of what should be each very deep decoupage).
Both cards are of country cottage scenes.
This first one has a rectangular topper. I used a sheet of cardstock from the same kit, and as the cardstock has a bit of a lacy look I added a piece of lace under one edge of the topper. I used 2mm deep, foam tape, to attach all the layers.
Here are a few more photos of the same card from different angles to show the dimension of the topper.
The second card has an oval topper. Again I used a sheet of A4 matching cardstock from the same kit to score and fold to make the base card.
And next are a couple of photos to show the topper dimension.
I’ve got several more cards to make for the family, so keep an eye out for them, along with some other crafting projects I’m working on.

Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.
