Birthday Cards with a Free Birthday Die

Birthday Cards with a Free Birthday Die

Hi my friends! Today, is the last day of August (my birthday month)! It was like it was here yesterday and gone tomorrow. Anyway, Simon Says Stamp always sends me a birthday promotion that I purchase and it comes with a free gift so this year, I bought more Pawsitively Saturated inks and my free gift was their “Festive Balloons” stamp set with the coordinating dies.

This is a cute little set that I colored with Copics and die cut out to be the centerpiece of my 3 cards. I did really simple coloring, not blending too much with more than one marker. The colors used were: #B000, BG11 and a lil BG45, the pink balloons was #R20 and the #0 colorless blender cause I went outside the lines a couple of times!

After all the coloring and die cutting, I used 2 types of pattern papers for my backgrounds. On the cardbases, I used Waffleflower Crafts Half/Half pattern papers. It’s a two-tone pattern paper pack, I used this primarily for a order.

On top of that I used My Favorite Things “Pretty in Plaids” paper pack.

Be sure to check out my “Christmas In July: Poinsettias 3 Designs” post using the MFT plaid papers!

I glued my balloons in different areas and angles on 3 cards which is another tip I use when making more than than 1 card. Then I die cut the sentiment, “Celebrate” out of black and white cardstock.

I wanted dimension but also a bit of a drop shadow so I glued the top layer a little off the white. The secondary sentiment is also from Simon so just adhered that right under the primary sentiment and these 3 cards were done!

Love how easy these birthday cards came about with just enough bright, vibrancy that I was looking for!
