Hello Everyone! I’m here to share 4 quick and simple birthday cards I made using the Flavor of the Month July Card Kit. My Birthday card stash was in need of some extra cards and the papers and stamp sets from this kit were perfect, especially for some gender neutral cards.
A lot of paper I have are “left over” from the first set of cards I made using this collection. This red pattern paper I was able to cut in half and attach it to both sides of the larger pattern paper. I made a tag and stamped the birthday cake, sentiment and stars from the Sunny Studio Stamp Set “Make a Wish”. I used copic markers to color in the images and added a bit of scrap ribbon from my stash.
I’m using the “Make a Wish” stamp set again with card 2. I found this stamp was really quick and easy to color. I added various pieces of pattern paper from Collection 2 and 3.
If I am in need of a really quick card and I do not have time to color and image, ephemera is a great way to decorate the front (or inside) of a card. In this card, I just added some pattern paper and a piece of ephemera that I matted on some black card stock.
This last card is another super easy card using a “cut apart” and some pattern paper. Some pattern paper will come with images that you can cut apart and use as a sentiment or image for your cards; which I have done here.
