Happy Birthday Cards – 3 Ways

May 20, 2016 | Cards

Today, I’m back with some birthday cards, done 3 different ways!  I love how you can take a simple design and add some fun extras to step it up.  I CASEd these cards from the demonstrator magazine I receive each quarter.   All 3 cards use items from the retiring It’s My Party suite from the Occasions Catalog.

Version 1

The first one is a quick and easy card, all you need is cardstock, stamps, ink, and washi tape for an added touch.

Version 2

The second card adds a few more details to the basic design: some DSP under the main image layer, punching out a few stamped candles, a different pattern of washi tape, and a few sequins.

Version 3

A couple more details are added for the third version: adding a popped up banner piece with part of the sentiment, and a baker’s twine bow.
