Better than store bought - a handmade baby card and birthday card

This is a quick post to show you a couple cards I created this weekend. I needed to put together a couple cards for people that are special to me. A friend of mine is expecting a baby boy very soon, and my oldest son turns 12 in a little over a week. Here is what I came up with:

Here is a card I came up with for my son's birthday. I wanted him to know just how spectacular he is, so I used a lot of silver on his card. This card is slightly larger than the standard size (it is 4.5" x 5.75" - having an envelope to fit won't be a problem because I have an envelope punch board!). This is his card:
