Birthday Bash -- cards by the dozen!

I recently did my first "Birthday Bash" card class -- you could choose any 8 cards for the $15 class fee, and then make as many extra cards as you wanted for $1.25 per card.  The idea was to make enough birthday cards for the whole year featuring everyone on your birthday calendar.  Here are some of the cards there were to choose from:
 A Pinwheel card of sorts -- you start by layering two 2 5/8 x 2 5/8" Midnight Muse card stock squares on top of each other as shown.  Next, punch out 4 squares each of designer paper with the 1 1/4" square punch and layer them in an alternating pattern over top of the first two squares you laid down -- put a brad or button in the middle where all the little points come together, and you've got an easy, but wow card!
 Simple masculine card using the Harvest Blessings stamp set and the window frames framelits.  I embossed the Crumb Cake card base with the Hexagon embossing folder from the spring catalog.  The Dotted Scalloped Ribbon punch adds just a little decorative border underneath the designer paper (from the Poetry Prints stack in the spring catalog).
 This Angry Birds card is a case of a card I saw on Pinterest.  Chevron embossing folder for the background, and various SU punches for all his parts.
 This is a case of a card I saw on Mary Fish's blog -- great little card for a teenager.
 Simple cupcake card using the cupcake punch in it's traditional way.
 Hello Kitty card -- cased from an idea I saw on Pinterest
 Ultra simple trifold card
 Perfect for your grandma kind of card -- featuring the Everything Elenor stamp set.
 A card featuring the Secret Garden and matching framelits (in the spring catalog) -- another case from a card I saw on Mary Fish's blog
 Simple layered butterflies -- check out the mini butterfly punch available in the spring catalog!  Layers perfectly on top of the larger butterfly in the current catalog.
Ice cream cone card using the cupcake top as the ice cream scoops.  The cone is made using the Pennant Parade stamp set and punched out with the Pennant builder punch.  The embossed cloud background is the cloudy day embossing folder from the spring catalog.

Hope this inspires you to do a little crafting this weekend! :)
