Inside of the Cards
Two of my daughters were born in January six years and five days apart. Their favorite colors are purple for the oldest and green for the younger. So every year I incorporate the colors into their cards.

The birthday cake(Imagine Yummy cartridge) and the cupcake(Imagine Better Together) were printed and cut as individual pieces using the Cricut Imagine diecutting machine. All edges of the cut pieces were inked using Colorbox ink. Some of the pieces were embellished with Ranger Stickles.The layers of the cake and cupcake were adhered together using a Zig 2 Way pen and then were attached to the cards with foam popups. 

The doily was cut using the new Martha Stewart Circular edge punch, cut in half and inked. The Recollection sentiment was stamped using Memory ink. The corners of the cards were cut using the We R Memory Keepers 1/4 Chromper.

The doily band on the inside of the cards were made with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Trim punch, also inked their edges. They were only adhered at the ends so a gift card or check could be slipped behind them.
