Various Birthday Cards

Hi friends! I hope you’re doing well. It’s definitely summer here…we’ve been in the 90’s and have even hit 100Ā° a few times! I’ve been a bit behind in posting, so today I’m sharing several birthday cards I’ve made recently. Sorry for the long post!

First up is this Gnomie birthday card scene. I stamped the gnome, mushrooms and bird on my card panel, and then stamped them again on masking paper. I masked off the images, added some cloud masks and ink blended my sky and grass. Once that was done I colored the images using colored pencils and gamsol. Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink, topped it with clear powder and heat embossed it for a shiny finish. I used the second largest nesting rectangle die to cut this panel down, and the largest rectangle die to cut a piece of orange woodgrain paper. Then I attached both to a white card base.

Supplies Used:


I wanted this card to be very masculine, so I used a lot of browns. I used a woodgrain embossing folder with some kraft cardstock and adhered it to a white card base. I used 3 tag dies to cut 2 different colors of woodgrain cardstock. On the smallest tag I stamped happy birthday (don’t remember which stamp this is), then tied all the tags with a piece of twine. I glued the bottom tag to the front of the card; the other tags are only attached with the twine.

Supplies Used:


Here are a few birthday cards using the Foil Quill and my Silhouette Cameo. These cards were pretty quick to make because I didn’t do any stamping. I just let the Cameo draw the main designs on white cardstock using different colors of foil. Then I selected a piece of watercolor cardstock that matched the foil color. I cut each piece of cardstock with a stitched rectangle or solid rectangle die and adhered them to white card bases.

Supplies Used:


These last 2 cards use the same letter board and balloon dies, but they look totally different! For the first card, I just used some colorful scrap cardstock for the balloons, white for the sentiment, and black for the letter board. I die cut everything out and glued it onto a white card base as shown. I tied white string to each of the balloons before gluing them down.

The next card was a request, and I was told the recipient likes “glitzy” things. I thought glitter paper would be perfect for her card! I used the glitter paper for both the balloons and frame around the letter board. I arranged the balloons and sentiment a bit differently than the other card, but otherwise did the same things.

Supplies Used:

Thanks for stopping by :) Have a great day!
