Hello everyone. Alaine here with a brand new challenge for the month of March. I am hoping you will play along as we create birthday cards all month long. Each week I will give you different inspiration and you can use that as a starting place for your cards or create whatever birthday card you would like.
For the first week of the challenge I decided to use a bright color scheme to give me a jump start on some cards for the gals in my life.
You can’t go wrong with an Angie Girl stamp for the ladies. This one is Bryna Girl and I think the balloon she is holding makes her perfect for birthday cards. For this card, stamp her to one side and color her with Copics. Cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die and then use a wavy, scallop border die on the right side. Use the same rectangle stitch die to cut your patterned paper and adhere them together. Tie organza ribbon around the left side and mount to a colored card base. The Happy Birthday came from February 2016 sentiment kit So Glad you Were Born. If you don’t have that one yet, you should definitely get it. It has loads of perfect sentiments and some darling images.
This card uses the stamp kit Cupcake Day. As far as birthday cards go, you can’t go wrong with a great big, gorgeous cupcake and some bold sentiments. Color this one up with some pink frosting for that special girl to drool over. I used the Copic markers from the cupcake to dot all around it for a festive confetti look. Cut this panel down with a double stitch die and then mount it on a pretty lacy die to make it extra special. The whole thing gets popped on a pink card base and the big sentiment is added along the bottom.
This challenge will go from today until the end of March. Make any card or project with a birthday theme. You can use the color inspiration I show here or make whatever card you want with a birthday them. Unity Stamp Co as so many stamps that make amazing birthday cards. I can’t wait to see what you all create with me this month. Be sure to enter your card in the challenge album on the Unity Show and Tell Facebook page.
