Hi friends, it’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing my favorite tip for making a big set of birthday cards – hint: assembly line!!
Watch how easy it is to create a half dozen cards in a jiffy!
Start by cutting the background. These papers are 4″ wide and 5 1/4″ tall.
The next layer is this fun text paper, cut at 4″ wide and
3 3/4″ tall. I centered each piece (eyeballing the center – no measurements here)!
Next, I cut a few different tear strips to 4″ wide and placed them on the top and bottom of each blue piece.
Now cut red patterned papers to 2 1/2″ x 4″ and white birthday text paper to 1 1/2″ x 4″. Add one of each to every card, tilting slightly in opposite directions.
Now we’re going to put one of my favorite, and most versatile papers, to work! Cut apart the tags from this fun paper!
Punch out the holes and tie baker’s twine through each one. Add a puffy sticker or two for interest and dimension!
Now the card tops are complete and the final step is to place each one onto a white cardstock card base! The final cards measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
I made a set of 6 cards, but you could easily make an entire dozen almost as quickly! Here’s a closer look at each of the six cards:
It’s easy to put together an entire set of cards, and having a fun collection like this one makes it extra fun!
