Are you trying to learn how to make easy Birthday cards? if so you are going to love this post as I am sharing with you how to make easy birthday cards using one set and the same supplies.
So let’s get started!
How to Make Easy Birthday Cards
One of the things I like to do when coming up with my cards, is to figure out the paper I want to use. For thee Birthday cards I knew I wanted to use the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper for these cards. Mainly because this paper pack is full of bright colors, which would help to make cheerful cards.
After all we all want to have happy and cheerful cards to be sent to our loved ones on their special day. right?
Once you have selected the paper, then it is time to select the stamp set to use!! So for these cards I decided to use the Timeless Tulips bundle as you can color them in any color!! These flowers are so easy to incorporate with any color combo, so definitely this is one of the sets I use the most, as it is easy to use.
Once I have selected the paper and the stamp set, then its time to select the color combination out of the patterned paper, that way I can select the card stock to use.
The Color Combination
For this part, I suggest you go thru the paper pack, and then select the sheet that you liked the most or the one you want to play with. Doing this always helps you to focus on fewer colors and then it becomes easy to pick a color combination.
You can see below the color combination I decided to use for these cards.
The next step in this process if to select sketches and start playing with them. This is where the fun starts as you can then get your creative juices going!
Sketches & Other Details
One of the things I highly suggest when trying to make your cards is to look for simple sketches. This is because it becomes easier to incorporate the paper and the stamp set with the sketch.
Birthday Card #1
This sketch is very similar to the one I showed a couple of months ago for some Masculine Thinking of You cards. As you can see in the card I showed you in that post (card #2 sketch # 13), is that even though I used about the same sketch the cards look completely different when you compared them together. And this is what I love the most of this process. Everyone will get a different card even if they use the same sketch. So your cards continue to be unique!
If you are wondering about the two tones tulips, I encourage you to watch the video tutorial below. This is an easy technique using sponges, that I know you will enjoy trying out!
Birthday Card #2
For this card, you can see how simple the sketch is a well, however the card looks stunning and so cheerful!! I really think that using patterned paper in your cards makes a big difference. So if you are like me and have been hoarding paper forever, I challenge you to take the leap and cut some of it! Use it in your cards, and you will see the difference it makes in your cards.
Your cards will be easier to make, as the wow factor becomes from the patterned paper!! Seriously, trust me! give it a try and you will see.
Birthday Card #3
And this final card is as easy as the rest of the cards I showed you today. You can see that same as the others the sketch is easy to follow. One thing I did not mentioned before is that when you picked the paper and the stamp set, it is important you also pick a few embellishments in the color combination that you picked.
Now, let me share with you a little secret. If you don’t have embellishments in the colors you are using, then pick a few in neutral colors and then color them with alcohol markers. In the cards from this post, I colored the Metallic Edge Ribbon with Melon Mambo, and you can see how well the bows look in the cards.
