The holiday season has begun and my crafting is lagging behind. Remembering that I needed a birthday card for a 1 year old and a wedding card made me hunt through my stash of handmade cards. Happily, I found a suitable wedding card so I just had to whip out a birthday card. Because the party is being held at the Pacific Aviation Museum, I decided to hunt for the Dandelion Designs stamp set I purchased years ago. My memory was accurate and the set was just right for this card and paired well with the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set that I acquired recently. I stamped the images on marker paper and colored them in with Copic pens before fussy cutting them out. I embossed the Lawn Fawn cloud images onto the pearlized card blank. I wanted the clouds to show on the front of the card so I left a big border by die cutting the LF scalloped rectangle of printed card stock smaller than usual.
To make the child's name standout, I die cut the X-cut letters from blue foil paper. They were then run through a Xyron sticker maker to apply adhesion. On the inside of the card I used the images from the LF set and used the die set to cut them out....so much easier than fussy cutting! I like that the clouds show on the inside and outside of the card. I hope this card gave you some ideas of how to put together an easy birthday card. Okay, onward to Christmas crafting!
