I'm excited to share these adorable birthday cards with you today – they share the same layout but each is unique! All are made with the Birthday Memories Suite of products. This suite makes quick and easy birthday cards because the framelit dies are made to cut out images in the designer paper (like the dog, cupcake girl, and balloon on these cards). So these images don't require coloring, just die cut them out and add them to the card! I used a 1" x 5 1/2" strip of the multicolored striped pattern from the Birthday Memories Designer Paper along the bottom edge of all three cards.
Here is a close up of the cupcake girl. She is bringing your birthday friends a special cupcake – she is so sweet with her vintage look! The small cupcake next to greeting also comes from the patterned paper – I punched it out with a 1/2" circle punch.
As you can see, I could have punched out 14 cupcakes instead of just one – you get a lot on this paper! This is how I laid the images in the Big Shot so that I could cut them all at the same time.
The pastry chef is not from the paper – he is a stamp that comes in the coordinating Birthday Delivery stamps set. I stamped him in Archival Black on Thick Whisper White card stock and cut him out with the coordinating framelit die. The cute frosting words "Happy Birthday" are also from the same set stamped in Real Red ink.
Coloring on the pastry chef is super easy because his outfit is white! I took the watercolor pencils and did a messy scribble with Pacific Point on his scarf and frosting tube, then I scribbled a little Calypso Coral on each cheek. I used the blender pen to smooth out the scribbles and fill in the white spaces – very quick and easy.
No surprise here, but the dog is my favorite (imagine that!!). There are many different adorable poodle images on the sheet – the framelit matches this one. This cute poodle is delivering a birthday balloon! See below on how I attached the balloon and string to the card.
This photo shows how I placed the dimensionals on all of the characters and decorations. I laid the Baker's twine for the balloon on top of the sticky dimensional to hold it in place.
Then on the front of the poodle card I adhered the balloon to the card and then tacked down the string with a glue dot. The poodle's muzzle will go right where the glue dot is.
Now there is no exposed glue dot and the poodle looks like he is carrying the balloon.
All three cards share the same inside greeting – love this banner stamp, so fun!
