Hi it's Lynnea! It is SO easy and FUN to make birthday cards using the Sweet Birthday Wishes Exclusive Craft Kit from LDRS Creative! I made 5 cards and still have more ideas!
The possibilities with the Sweet Birthday Wishes Craft Kit are truly endless! I put my personal style into each of these 5 cards, but I love that the products are created in such a way that you can do whatever you like with them! How fun would it be to create a scrapbook page or mini album to celebrate someone's birthday!? Remember! The Sweet Birthday Wishes Craft Kit is limited edition and once it's gone it won't be restocked, so be sure to grab yours from the LDRS Creative store! You get two stamp sets, a die set, papers, and more!
I was drawn to the falling confetti patterned paper and the "happy" bubble balloons (as I call them!) for my first card. I LOVE that there is a coordinating die set for this stamp set to easily cut out the balloons and the strings! I cut the patterned paper with the outer die from the Slim Line Basket Weave Pocket Die Set and added my elements with foam tape for a super fun pocket sized card!
A new item in the Sweet Birthday Wishes Craft Kit are foilable acetate sheets! You definitely don't have to foil them (example of that to follow!), but I just HAD to! I heated up my laminator, placed a piece of gold foil (pretty side up!) onto the acetate sheet, and ran it through with a carrier sheet. Just look at that pretty shine! Of course I needed MORE sparkle, so I used a piece of the gorgeous blue glitter cardstock from the kit for my background. I created a frame by stacking together the two largest dies in the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set and added that around the outside.
I finished off this shiny card with a hot pink circle cut from the Scalloped Circle Frames Die Set and layered a Stitched Circle Die on top with my sentiment. I used up my confetti patterned paper from the first card by die cutting it with dies included in the Sweet Birthday Wishes Craft Kit.
Let's use two more of the acetate sheets on this card! They are sized perfectly to layer onto an A2 panel, so I trimmed down the yellow cardstock from the kit and added an acetate sheet on top. This one is not foiled and you can see how special it is straight from the package! These acetate sheets would also be GREAT as fronts for shaker cards! There is an acetate sheet that has birthday messages, so I cut it up and used it for my sentiment! I foiled the "happy birthday" and "let's eat cake" with gold foil and adhered it onto the hot pink cardstock from the kit and added the strips with foam to my card. A few enamel dots from my stash finishes off my third card!
My fourth card took a few twists and turns, but it's ended up being my favorite of the bunch! You can check out my video for all the changes I made! I used Alloy Hybrid Ink to stamp a sentiment repeatedly across a white background. The effect is so light and soft! I stamped the three balloons and used some creative masking to fill the balloons with flower clusters using Dan-D-Lion, Fandango, and Key Lime Pie Hybrid Inks. I stamped the same sentiment I used for my background with Raven Hybrid Ink and trimmed it into a strip. I just love that this card can be used as a birthday card, graduation card, anniversary, etc! Just goes to show that you don't have to stick strictly to birthday cards with this kit!
I couldn't leave this kit without using my FAVORITE patterned paper! I'm a sucker for geometric patterns and these colors are to die for! I created a shaker frame by nesting together two dies from the Scalloped Circle Frames Die Set, created a simple shaker with stars and confetti pieces, and added the adorable three layer cake stamped image on top!
And there you have it! Five easy cards using the LDRS Creative Sweet Birthday Wishes Exclusive Craft Kit! This kit is amazingly fun to work with and you can create so many cards. I hope these projects inspire you! Remember that the Sweet Birthday Wishes Craft Kit is limited edition, so grab it while you can!
