Peeking Birthday Fairy Handmade Card

birthday-fairy

This is a very simple card, and would be fun for a child’s birthday card. The fairy stamp is one I had from an Inkadinkado stamp set, but you could use different things like butterflies, princesses,  even cat or dog stamps, die cuts, or stickers — anything that would look neat peeking out. I also used a heart brad to hold down the flap of paper, just because it matched the paper I had. If you would like the full instructions, there’s a video below. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Silver Butterfly Birthday Card

Silver-Butterfly-Birthday-Card

Sparkles fix everything lol….well anyway, if you have sparkles and add embossed stamping to it, you can’t go wrong. This card was so spectacularly easy! I picked 3 butterfly stamps from 2 different sets (the top 2 are from Inkadinkado’s Gemstone Insects), and even placed them all on the same acrylic block to stamp.

TIP: If you place several stamps from different sets onto an acrylic block, just make sure they are the same height so it stamps evenly.

To make this plain card fancy, I embossed the stamped butterflies in silver, then also used glitter paper and a small length of silver and white ribbon. So easy and fast! Thanks for stopping by!

Everyday Butterfly Handmade Note Card

Happy Memorial Day!

This week’s card is a quick card that works great for a note card, or is even great for birthdays and other occasions! You just need cardstock, a patterned paper, 2 ribbons, a scalloped circle or regular circle, and a butterfly sticker or die cut. I used a Cricut die cut butterfly, but if you don’t have access to a die cut, try placing a butterfly sticker on a piece or cardstock or scrapbook paper, and cut around it. That way you can still fold the wings up and just glue the body to the scalloped circle. Thanks for stopping by!

Red, White, & Blue Star Birthday Handmade Card

Red-White-Blue-Birthday-Card   Red-White-Blue-Birthday-Card-Inside

My son’s birthday is right near Christmas, and I like him to have an actual birthday the same as everyone else. So this year, I decided to make him a red, white, and blue card. This card is also sophisticated enough for a grown-up boy :). Even though I should take more time to show the insides of my cards, as you can see in the pictures above, I just try to make a reflection of the outside, but simple enough and small enough that there’s room for a nice greeting or note in there too. Follow along below for all the step by step instructions.
