Three birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set!
So without any more delay, let me show you the birthday cards I made last week! As usual these are super easy to recreate!
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, these birthday cards are using a set of products that coordinate with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, there are Lily Pad dies, that will help you cut out the images from the stamp set, and also give additional die cuts to embellish the card.
Also, there is the Lily impressions designer series paper a.k.a. DSP or patterned paper, that goes really well with the stamp set and the dies. The colors on this DSP are bright and cheerful and it inspire you to create happy projects.
Below you will see the video tutorial on how to make the three birthday cards using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, however I wanted to give you a bit of information on each of the cards before just showing the video.
Birthday Card #1
The first birthday card made with the lovely lily pad is actually a fun fold, which believe it of not is super easy to make!
I did add a magnet to close the card shut, as I usually see that these type of card do not close shut when laying flat.
Now to be honest, I glued too soon the DSP onto the card front, and so the magnet shows up. If I make this card again I would probably glue the magnet first and then add the DSP so that the magnet is hidden. I guess this is a lesson learned! 😂😂😂
Birthday Card #2
The second birthday card is a fun layout, you can see that the card base is stamped tone on tome and the DSP layers are shifted to add interest.
I then added a band and a circle to make my focal point pop up.
As you can see from the picture, I added the detailed die cut, but before gluing it down, I sponged a little Melon Mambo to add a little color and make the die cut to stand a little better. I also sponged the leaves on the die cut to add some dimension. This is an easy trick and it adds a lot to the die cut!
Birthday Card #3
The third birthday card is maybe my favorite, which is kind of odd, since I love purple. So one would think the first birthday card is my favorite, however, I felt as if all the colors and pieces coordinated perfectly on this card!
Not to mention that this card was the easiest of all! One thing to note is that I added a petal pink vellum circle on top of the whisper white circle and in person this add a really nice texture.
I also love how the two detailed die cuts are laying behind the stamped lily! If you noticed I used different colors for these die cuts and these added a great contracts overall.
And as mentioned earlier, here is the video tutorial where I go over how to make the three birthday cards using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set as well as the other coordinating products.
I show you step-by-step how to make them and go over measurements and colors in more detail.
Please know that because it is three cards in one video, this is a little long, so I recommend watching this video when you are winding down from your busy day. I know you will enjoy it more.
If you are interested in catching me live, you can do so every Thursday at 7pm CST on my Facebook Page, where I show how to make three cards using one set of products.
I know you will get a lot of inspiration, and hopefully you will get excited to make cards! 😉
