Hi, Renee here to share some Birthday cards using the Spring Fling collection. Oh my gosh, I am in LOVE with this collection…bright happy colors, perfect for any style project you have, and perfect for any occasion (birthdays, babies, congratulations, Easter, graduations, thank you, weddings, etc.). Never ending list of possibilities!
A new spring season brings many birthdays for us to celebrate. Right now, I’m having fun planning and preparing for my girls upcoming birthdays. House parties that include Payton’s Sleepover Party (her first one) and Caitie’s Craft Party. It’s a super exciting and a busy time for me. So, I wanted to build-up a stash of Birthday cards to give to family.
Here are the supplies I used for the first card:
My blue cardstock base measures 5″ x 7″. I used a bit of adhesive to add the Spring Fling (trimmed to 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″) and Chalkboard Floral (trimmed to 4 7/8″ x 6 ¼”) pattern papers to my card. I added machine stitching along the top and bottom of the Chalkboard Floral pattern paper.
To embellishment my card, I layered a pretty Rosette with a gold foiled doily Die-Cut. I added a pretty flower bouquet and birthday cake Die-Cuts. I used a “Happy Birthday” banner for the sentiment on my card. Then, I changed my mind about using the Puffy Stickers and instead added a heart Sticker. I splattered some Golden Color Mist for a final touch.
Here are the supplies I used for the next card:
My light gray cardstock base measures 5″ x 7″. I used a bit of adhesive to add the Party Time (trimmed to 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″) and Chalkboard Floral (trimmed to 4 ½” x 6 ½”) pattern papers to my card. I layered vellum trimmed to fit over the Chalkboard Floral pattern paper and added machine stitching around my card.
To embellishment my card, I first placed a beautiful balloon bouquet Sticker onto my card. I used a “Birthday Wishes” Label Sticker for the sentiment on my card. I could have peeled and placed the label sticker right onto the vellum layer but I wanted it to have dimension. I turned the pretty flower bouquet Sticker into a party hat and topped it off with a wood veneer pom-pom. I also added a cute little bird Sticker and a flower Puffy Sticker. I splattered some Golden Color Mist again for a final touch.
Here are the supplies I used for the last card:
My yellow cardstock base measures 5″ x 7″. I used a bit of adhesive to add the Blossoms (trimmed to 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″) and Celebration (trimmed to 3 ½” x 6 7/8″) pattern papers to my card. I added machine stitching along the edge of the Celebration pattern paper.
To embellishment my card, I backed the Vellum Quote Card with a 3″ x 4″ piece of smooth white cardstock and used it for the sentiment on my card. I added a beautiful birthday cake and butterfly Stickers to my card. Since I knew where I would place my stickers, I used those spots to add adhesive dots under my Vellum Quote Card and attach it to the white cardstock. For a final touch, I added a couple of flower Puffy Stickers
I hope you enjoyed these Birthday cards! Happy Creating!
