Card #12 – Colorful Festive Birthday card
I started by assembling all my supplies.
Of all the cards I make, birthday cards are the ones I make the most. Most of the time I try to fit the card design to the person, but every now and then I just need a card full of color and celebration. This one is definitely full of color and is great for using scraps.
I used white cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1W/2″) for my base, red cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) for the frame, white cardstock for the front panel and patterned cardstock for the banner backing.
I started by spraying my white cardstock front panel with Dylusions Spray Ink. From primary color for this card is red, so I chose Post Box Red for the ink. I used my cardboard spray box. The spray ink doesn’t dry immediately so I used my heat gun to speed things up. I then used my adhesive to attach it to the red cardstock frame.
I cut a piece of scrap white cardstock, stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in red ink and backed it with red cardstock. I used my scissors to notch out the right end of the banner. I set it aside to work on the background banners.
I found coordinating patterned cardstock and cut out several pieces of varying widths and lengths. I notched out each end of each piece and placed them at different heights and stacked on top of each other. I glued them all down once I was happy with the layout and attached the birthday banner on top. I finished the card by gluing the card front to the white cardstock base and placing a black enamel dot next to the sentiment.
Here is the finished card.
This is a great design that can easily be used to make several cards by changing the color palette.
