Birthday cards—you can never have too many on hand especially for those last minute kid parties.  My project today is super clean and simple and easy to put together.

I used the numbers dies from the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Gift Card Bag die set to die cut a fun background pattern into a panel of navy card stock.

I used a big piece of Post-It tape to secure the numbers down before I ran the panel through my Gemini Jr.  After, I added a few more numbers and ran them through again to fill in the gaps.  I trimmed down and attached the panel to the front of a white notecard and set it aside.

Using a grid lined acrylic block I stamped the Happy Birthday from Avery Elle’s Peek-a-Boo Pals and a star from Big Greetings across the top of a piece of white card stock.  I used a variety of ink colors from Memento including Paris Dusk, Lady Bug and Tangelo.

I trimmed out the birthday strip and added other colored strips to the back in a tilted pattern.  I attached the strip with foam tape and trimmed it down to fit across the notecard over the stenciled panel.

The primary colors are perfect for a boy-themed birthday card and the white background keeps everything modern-looking.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
