Yet more Birthday cards

So, you remember my sample try outs from the other day, for the CAS cards? I just thought they looked too nice to waste, even though they were only on copy paper. I didn't want to use them as they were though, as there were bits I wasn't happy with.

 So I cut them into squares, and matted them onto card.

Stared at them for a bit, and decided I diodn't like that either.

So I cut them back down into squares.........

...and gave each one three coats of UTEE.

Four became this card, with some navy organza ribbon tied in a knot.

And the other four became this one, with the centre two 'cracked'. Okay, I confess, the first one cracked by accident, so I thought a second one would sort of even it out a bit :) .
