I was thrilled when I received this collection! I’m a huge fan of bright colors and cute designs. I also love creating birthday layouts and cards.
For today’s blog post, I created 18 mini birthday cards in one afternoon. I have created a collection of mini cards before, using the beautiful Heart of Home collection and often wished I had birthday cards as well. When I saw this collection, I knew straight away what I was going to create.
All I needed to create these Happy Hooray Mini Birthday Cards was the sheet of patterned paper called “Party Time” and cardstock pieces from the American Crafts “Primaries” textured cardstock pack.
I started by cutting apart all the images and selecting eighteen of them. Once that was done, I matted them on a piece of cardstock.
I stitched all the sides using my sewing machine before adhering them on a cardstock cardbase.
The squares measure 5 cm x 5 cm and the finished (square) cards measure approx. 6.5 cm x 6.5 cm. The rectangular images measure twice the size of the squares, so they are 5 cm x 10 cm and the finished cards measure approx. 6.5 cm x 12 cm. As the cards are so small, I decided against adding any more embellishments.
The Happy Hooray Mini Birthday Cards can be used to accent gifts or gift boxes, flowers or potted plants, but can (of course!) be used to send in an envelope by mail as well. I also plan to put the “you’re special” and “yay you” mini cards in my kids’ lunch boxes one day so they’ll find them during their lunch breaks. I’m sure they’ll love them!
When my stash of Happy Hooray Mini Birthday Cards was ready, I used the We R Memory Keepers Shadow Box Clip Frame again to showcase them. I also added two Happy Hooray Cake Toppers for fun. Doesn’t it look festive?!
I “only” used eighteen of the images of the “Party Time” sheet, but I definitely plan on using the other nine images to create mini cards as well!
Thank you so much for stopping by our blog! The Happy Hooray collection is SO close to being in your hands! I can’t wait for you to get your turn to create!
