Happy Birthday his and hers set by Jen Shults using Small Packages from Verve Stamps releaseing 8/30/14.

Today I’m using Small Packages from Verve to make a his and hers set of birthday cards. I was recently asked to make a stash of birthday and general use cards by a close friend and these two cards are going in that stash. I just LOVE this Small Packages Stamp set…. the sentiments are just adorable and I love the variety of cupcakes in the set.

The layout from my card is from Mojo360.

Each card features the same cardstock with the exception of one color. I used a bright pink cardstock for her card and a bit of rusty orange for his card. I distressed his card with a Prima distress tool and used a few of the sequins from the new Verve Signature Sequin Mix for her card.
