A few CAS Krafty Birthdays

 I've been working on some clean and simple birthday cards with Kraft (aka Crumb Cake) as the primary color. I think that is probably my favorite neutral to work with because I'm a earthy tone kind of gal when it comes to crafting.

These two cards are almost identical using the same Basic Grey paper...but showcasing Not Quite Navy on one and Old Olive on the other. Gotta love simplicity for those last minute birthday cards, right?

This card features a pretty little tree stamp that I inked up for the first time on Monday night. I colored the stamp with my Stampin Up markers so I could get the variation in the picture. Don't you love little mushrooms? I decided to do it in Ruby Red and have that color be my accent. The darker leaves were dabbled with Stickles...just like the mushroom. Before cleaning the stamp again, I huffed it and stamped the inside of the card for a nice shadow scene.

The sentiment is a cute little Happy Birthday from my Birthday Cheer set by Paper Makeup Stamps.

There you have it. Some cute little 10 minute cards to keep on hand for birthdays...or really ANY time...just swap out the sentiment!
