"Happy Birthday" Cards

I need to make cards for two teenage boys this month, something I always struggle with, but I was struck by the simplicity of this month's card sketch at Stick It Down.

I turned to my Silhouette for this one and manipulated an alphabet cut file  from Just Nick to give me an outline of the word 'birthday' which I could back with scraps of patterned paper.

Both the card and the word are white cardstock so I used an ink applicator and distress ink to apply some colour to the card, and I also spattered it with silver mist. Having made one, I moved on to a second, and then a third. 

This is such an easy design to repeat and suitable for any age; I think I need more card blanks in this size!


  1. Love the cards. Thanks for playing along with us at Stick it Down.

  3. Wow! So glad you made such good use of our card sketch this month. I agree, this one's a keeper. You could substitute any word, couldn't you?

    What a great way to use up scraps, too. I love the font you chose.

    Thanks for using our sketch as inspiration for your card!
