As a card maker, I am drawn to bright, cheerful colors. Mostly white card bases with pops of pinks, mint and soft yellows. There are times though, when I need to make a masculine-style card. This is where the richer colors come in with some darker accents. For today’s project, I’m using a background die from Avery Elle called Waves for a quick and easy masculine birthday card. Balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set are heat embossed with rich colors that complement the neutral background.
As summer draws closer, so does kids’ birthday party season. I have a great way to get yourself prepared with a ready made card and tag set using a simple 6 x 6 patterned paper pad and a fun interactive die. Patterned paper pads are great because you have everything you need to make quick DIY crafts with little effort. All the fun colors and even some sentiments are right there for you to cut and paste! For my projects today, I used the Sizzix Stephanie Barnard Framelits Card Drop In-Thank You die set along with the Pebbles Happy Hooray 6×6 paper pad. I also used some large and small pre-made white tags.
The last thing you want to do when you realize you’ve forgotten someone’s birthday is spend even longer creating a card for them. This cute card is so quick and easy to make. Who can be mad at this cute snail?
Have you ever wanted to decorate the inside of your card, but weren’t sure how? A recessed background is a great way to decorate both the inside and outside together. A few of your favorite dies is all you need to create the beautiful flowers in this recessed background.
