Fun Birthday Card Idea to make
When I saw the Ice Cream Corner Suite I really thought of fun Birthday Card ideas!!! I mean it has ice creams and icicles which I could see as treats during birthday parties right??
So with that in mind, I decided to use it for a Fun Birthday Card.. You can see below the picture of my project.
As always I used the designer series paper (DSP) to get the color combo for my project and of course, when I saw this collection had Purple Posy in it, I decided to go for that color!
I love Purple, so there was no way, I was not going to use Purples in my card, if the DSP has it! right?
Using the Designer series paper for the color combos is always the easiest way to do it, and when you use Stampin’ Up! products making cards or any paper crafting project for that matter becomes so easy as well.. Since all their products color coordinate, you just need to pull all your supplies in this colors and you instantly get creative..
And you can do this for any of the sheets, in this case I created a second Birthday Card using this same suite.. See below..
You can see that in this second card I used again the DSP as inspiration for the color combo.. below you can see this color combo.
And as you can see, I just used a twine in the Blushing Bride, and cardstock in Calypso Coral, Bumblebee, and Blushing Bride, and the card looks all coordinated. I am telling you, this is super easy to do!
The Sketch & Other Details
Every time I make cards, I try to pick the DSP I want use and then select the color combo. Once I have that I just pull out all the supplies in these colors, like cardstock, ribbon, gems, etc.. and from there, I go and pick a sketch or sketches to use..
And this time was not different!
I love using sketches, as they always helps me get into my creative zone in no time!
So for these cards, I am sharing the one sketch, and how you can change the direction.. so that you can see that any sketch can be flipped horizontal or vertical and get you a new fresh look.
Also notice how I also changed the position of the elements, so always feel free to change the elements and the shapes.
Tips for Sketches
A few tips to share with you when playing with Skethes
- Always start with simple sketches – these are easier to modify and change, offering even more possibilities
- Change the texture or materials of the layers, you could use plain or embossed cardstock, designer series paper, specialty papers
- Change the shapes of the elements – Any time you see a circle for example you can sub it for another shape like ovals, or squares, or any other label shape. You could even use a stamped image shape.. the possibilities are endless
- You can add multiples of an element, for instance instead of one banner, you can add two
- See what you can do with the backgrounds – you can make a fun technique with it or shift the layers like I did in both of my cards today
Hope his list gives you ideas of what you can do with a simple sketch and even better, I hope you start using them whenever you feel stuck not knowing where to start when you are making cards
