Hi Artzy friends –
I am always looking for quick easy ways to beef up my stash of birthday cards, so today I have 4 cards to share with you, all created with the same die. The die I used was the Slim Mini Birthday die, but I created 3 A2 cards and a slimline card!
To create my A2 cards, I cut the Happy Birthday die out of three different colors of cardstock. I saved all the pieces as I poked them out of the die so I could inlay them back into the other colored die cuts. It was then super easy to create 3 colorful Happy Birthday elements all at once!
These can then be used on just about any size card – mini slimline, slimline, or A2 being the most common sizes that come to mind.
I created three simple A2 cards that I’ll be able to use for any birthdays that come along.First I mounted one to a matching teal background, and added “to you” stamped beneath it, along with 3 red gems.
For the next one I attached my happy birthday to the center of a piece of paper from the Seas the Day collection.
For the next card I mounted the happy birthday in the center of a white card base, and embellished it with the new Mini Stars Border die.
After completing these 3 coordinating cards, I decided to get a little crazy and create a slimline shaker card.
This time, I cut the Slim Mini Birthday die out of white cardstock and created a shaker element, filling the Happy with blue sequins, and the Birthday with orange sequins.
I then cut the two background layers for my slimline card using dies from the Wavy Slimline Framelit dies. The wavy frame is cut from paper from the Ice Cream Social collection. I love the fun colors and patterns and the shaker element on this slimline card!
I hope you’ve been inspired to think of different ways to use your dies, and to create lots of birthday cards to have on hand!
