A Simple Birthday Card That Looks Great!

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

It has been a busy time in my craft room making all kinds of cards, but I love this kind of busy 🙂

Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for our nephew.  And to be honest I really want to make a simple card, but just because its simple doesn’t mean it will not look good.

I used the April Stamp of the Month stamp set from Close to my Heart.  A really great thing that Close To My Heart does is every month they have a stamp special.  If you spend $50.00 you can purchase the stamp of the month for just $5.00, otherwise you can purchase it anytime for $17.95 USD.  I know that the catalog that I have ends this month, so not sure what’s in the new idea book.

This stamp set is called Typed Note #S1504  and it comes in a set of 19 stamps.  If you want to order this stamp set just click on the link and it will take you to my friend Kim’s Close To My Heart website 🙂

Ok back to the card.  I stamped the typewrite and the sentiment that goes inside the “paper” with the Close to my Heart Archival Black Exclusive Ink #44751 on white cardstock and then just layered that image on two layers of colored cardstock.  This was simple, but I think it turned out great.

Cuttlebug Birthday Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

This is a busy month for Birthdays in our family and I have to also make some cards for birthdays that were last month (sorry Luke and Riley)  So I really have to be creative and not make the same card over and over.  I am loving this bakers twine, it adds such a perfect accent to all kinds of creations 🙂

Using Memento tuxedo place ink I stamped the image of the flower twice, since I wanted to use a pop dot for a layered look.  Colored the flower with Copic sketch markers, and added some Stickles for the extra shimmer.

Then took out the Cuttlebug and cut the green cardstock using a Framelit Labels die from Sizzix.   Added some bakers twine by just wrapping around the paper and tied a knot.  Put the pop dot on top of the knot and added the stamped flower.

The card just needed more, so again I used the Cuttlebug but this time used an embossing folder of Big Dots, and craft cardstock.  I still needed to stamp happy birthday someplace, and I found some metal frames in a container with some rhinestone brads. This wound be perfect.  Since the brads went in the back of the Big Dot embossed cardstock I put another layer of cardstock behind so it wouldn’t tear the white base card.

The great thing about using a Cuttlebug is that you can cut images with thin metal dies (Framelits) and also emboss with all of the embossing folders on the market.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope this birthday card gives you some good ideas when you are making your own handmade greeting card.

Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Our niece is having a birthday in a few days and loves Hello Kitty, so what a perfect cricut card idea I had using the Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge.  I forgot how cute this cricut cartridge really is 🙂

This handmade birthday card was so much fun to make and to think that it only took a few minutes using my Cricut Expression machine and 4 pieces of (white, pink,red and black) cardstock, and some adhesive.  Look how great it looks.

For the inside of the card I cut the happy birthday saying that was on the cartridge on pink cardstock and using a Zig 2 way glue just applied each letter onto the white card along with a small red flower that was also on the cartridge.
