Birthday Cards Paper Crafting

     Hello lovelies, how’s it going? Hope you’re doing well.

     I usually do long rambles before getting to the topic of the post but I don’t have much to ramble on about right now so I guess I’ll just get to it? Feels strange to do that but here we go, I had to make a few birthday cards in May so here’s what I ended up with.

     It was a haphazard day in the craft room where I had no plan going in and just took out a bunch of supplies and messed around with them to see what I could make. I think the cards worked out. I ended up with one die cut image I put together and matched with paper and one stamped image I matched with some floral card.

      Actually, I did do a bit of planning before sitting down to craft. I knew I wanted to make a card attached to a box so I had to figure out some dimensions for scoring and cutting that – oh was I surprised that those numbers actually worked out!

     I didn’t have a plan for the decorating though – that came about by again just rummaging through all my supplies and putting random bits together until I was happy enough with the result. I think it worked?

     What do you think of these cards I made? What are some of your favourite paper crafting techniques for card making – are you more of a stamper or die-cutter or what?

    1. Thanks! I love card making but it is something I tend to do a lot of in a short space of time and then don’t do for ages until I find myself in need of loads of new cards (usually about this time of year because there are so many birthdays in October!)

    1. Thanks!
      Finding nice store bought cards can be pretty hard, for me anyway. Like, even if there’s a huge area in the stationery shop dedicated to greeting cards there somehow mange to be none for whatever occasion I need a card for (also, never any cards for cat and dog birthdays which companies are really missing out on as I would totally buy pet related cards!)
