Geometric Happy Birthday Handmade Card

geometric-happy-birthday-card

The card for this week was one I just made from rectangles and squares. This is a great way to use up scraps! The triangles were cut with a square punch, then cut in half twice, so you don’t really need a punch. I know there are a lot of you out there that appreciate when there’s a card design that doesn’t use any special tools at all. So if you have a way to cut paper, you’re good to go on this one :). I used a rub on for the greeting, but any sort of sticker, stamps, or even handwritten greeting will work. Thanks 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!

Four Square Birthday Wishes

Sometimes it’s fun to take a simple shape & give it a little twist! This card is an easy one, and elegant for a ladies birthday. You can also change up the colors, lace & flowers for another trim & embellishment & turn it into a guy’s card! Use what you already have & design your card. I would love to see your projects! If you ever want to share, just email me at admin@dinglefoot.com.

I started with 4 square pieces of paper, 1 -1/2″  each, and then used a corner rounder on two sides of each square. I also used lace, layered flowers with a gold glimmer brad, a birthday wishes stamp (or gold birthday stickers are great too!), black ink & iridescent gold embossing powder.
