A Trio of Birthday Cards

Hi friends,

I have some fun birthday cards to share with you today! I used the same basic layout for all 3 cards, but by using different images and colors they look totally different.

All 3 of my main stamped images are from Unity Stamp Company. The gnome is called Life’s A Party Gnome, the cupcake is Everyday Celebration, and the girl is Hip Hip Hooray. My sentiments are stamps I’ve had forever – use your favorite birthday greeting stamps to make your cards.

I stamped each image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored them with Copic markers. I die cut around each image and layered them to coordinating card stock. I attached the images to patterned paper, overlapping the left edge slightly and trimming off the excess. Then I attached the entire piece to a white card.

The dies I used are Scallops & Rectangles nesting dies from Unity Stamp Company (they are currently unavailable – these are similar) for the gnome, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Dienamics from MFT Stamps for the cupcake, and Scallops and Circles nesting dies from Unity Stamp Company for the girl.

I stamped the sentiments on white card stock and on 2 of the cards, I layered it to matching card stock trimmed into a banner shape on one side. All of the sentiments are attached to the card with foam tape. I finished off the cards with 3 sequins or dew drops.

It was fun to start out with one layout and create 3 different cards just by changing images and colors. What will you create?
