Birthday cards are the most needed for me! Sometimes I need one now so quick and simple is good! This birthday bow card is just that!!
The other super cool thing about this cards is your can change up the colors to what you like the best or what you have on hand! There are endless possibilities with this card style.
I started with a Peek-A-Boo Peach card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″ and added a strip of the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper along the right side (1″ x 3-3/4″). The awesome thing about this is that you can get like 8 pieces from one sheet of the 6″ x 6″ designer paper. Woot Woot! For the stamping, I used the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog! The greeting was stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink and the bow in Lemon Lime Twist Ink. For the bow, I stamped the large portion of the bow first and after stamping off once. Then I stamped all the little pieces in full strength Lemon Lime Twist. Since the stamp set is photopolymer, it is pretty easy to line up and stamp the second image!
Do you like quick and simple cards like this or one with more layers? What would you add or change to this card to step it up? Let me know in the comments below! I did think about adding some ribbon or stamping more bows but then I thought less is more maybe!
Maybe 3 rhinestones in the top right corner. I agree with you. On this card… Less is more. I love the single bow. It stands out. I also like how you rotated the top layer. I still have trouble doing that. I am used to everything being straight. Thank you for reminding me that it is ok to do that. LOL.
I love your cards. Thanks for sharing your talent.
Oh that would be a good idea and I do love my bling!!! I started doing the rotating a bit more lately. I think I like it. I asked my husband and he was like it’s crooked. Appealing to some and not to others. Either way, it’s totally OKAY!!! 🙂 Have a fabulous day! ~Laura
