Create big wishes on a small card...

Dropping in with some cards that are "small in size, but BIG on wishes" today.  We have been celebrating June with birthday inspiration over at the Chicagoland Scrapbooker blog.  There have been great birthday ideas all month long and I am showing these cards to finish off the month (eek, it's July next week).   For all of these cards, I used small wood embellishments from Unique Laser Designs.  They all started with a card base of kraft paper that is 4"x4" inches (when folded).  I used washi tape as the background (SO quick and easy), and then colored my wood embellishments with Copic markers.  I added a layer of Glossy Accents to give them a shiny dimension.  I LOVE this bird on a branch---he is simply cute!

For this turtle card, I colored him with Copics, popped on a googly eye, and then added a layer of sparkly green micro-glitter.  For those birthdays you (almost) forget...the outside reads "this birthday card is not late", the inside says "it's just slow". 

I pushed colored clay into the spaces in this 3D butterfly and then blinged it out with some Glossy Accents and glitter glue on the antennae.

Do you recognize that sentiment below the butterfly?  

This 3 piece cupcake is sweet and looks good enough to eat!  I used white ink to color the frosting, Copic markers for the cherry, and an icing of Glossy accents sprinkled with micro-beads.

These wood shapes make these cards come together SO easily--I think I'm going to make a bunch!
