Hip, hip, hooray everyone! Heather Leopard is here and not only does October bring cooler weather for us here in Texas but it’s also birthday season for my family. I love making fun cards and a fun birthday card is probably my most favorite to create.
Gather your supplies
You’ll need your favorite expressions cut to size from patterned paper, and the awesome embellishments (hello, enamel confetti!) from the Happy Hooray collection plus card bases cut to 8.5″ x 11″. You can download my Silhouette template for card bases and the die cut words HERE.
Let’s get started with birthday card #1
Fold your card base in half so it measures 4.25″ x 5.5″. Cut the words from my cut file found HERE and arrange them as shown in the photos. Using matching washi, add some washi banner pennants and then place the large die cut sentiment from the Happy Hooray collection over the washi using foam dots, so that the pennants stick out from the die cut.
Add additional embellishments and enamel confetti for a fun and festive look.
Birthday Card #2
Wanting to wish someone a very happy birthday? Get your point across with birthday overload. To create this, fold your card base in half and place it in landscape / horizontal in front of you. Add the chipboard “HAPPY” banner across the top. Using that awesome washi again, run a strip across and under the banner to create a border. Then, cut the words “happy” from the repeat stickers in the collection. Just cut it right down the middle so that you have the words “birthday” remaining.
Find the center of your card and add 5 birthdays stacked evenly on top of each other. I kept the stickers on the backing and was able to easily peel from the side and adhere all 5 on at the same time. Easy breezy. Next, add the words to the right and left, leaving an even gap in the middle. Lastly, fill the gap with candles. Add embellishments as you wish.
Now my birthday cards are complete and I’m ready to celebrate!
