A bevy of birthday cards

Hello and welcome crafty peeps!

I was playing in the craft room again, to try a new-to-me technique:
using powder inks with stencils. Using this tutorial as a guide,
I made two panels:

From these, I created 4 cards:

I used a couple word dies cut from black and gold glitter paper. A couple I left
super CAS, and the other two I felt compelled to add gold sequins to. LOL!

There you have it. Four more cards to add to my severely depleted birthday card stash!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a great day!
