Now let’s see how our Design Team was inspired to create All Things Birthday!
Mimi created the most amazing birthday gift wrap in happy colors! She added fun images from Wild for You, Year Four, RAWRSOME, Simply Celebrate Summer and Offset Sayings: Birthday! She also included a cut bow in Holographic cardstock from Put a Bow on It, and a gift tag made with an ice cream cone from I Scream You Scream!
Catherine created a whole party with a “strawberry shortcake” theme! For the clever shaker invitation, she used Outside In Stitched Strawberry, Stitched Strawberry Frame and Strawberry Patch to carry the theme. She created “Strawberry Shortcake” with Bicycle Built for You, Berry Special and Special Delivery. There’s also “let’s party” from Party Animal along with Flirty Frames, and “date” and “address” from Plan On It and Plan On It: Appointments.
For the fantastic party decor, Catherine used more strawberry die sets along with Milk Carton, Cake Slice Box and Stitched Scalloped Cupcake Wrapper!
Aparrotly, Franci used our new Year Twelve set to feature on her adorable birthday card! An ink blended Snowy Backdrop makes for a cheery layer of color on this clean and simple design!
Joyce created the sweetest birthday card featuring You Goat This! The mini slimline card is the perfect size for this happy little party!
Samantha‘s birthday card is “on point” with the adorable cactus from Year Ten! She added lots of style to her simple design with ink blending and Lots of Hearts stenciling!
Jessica‘s legendary birthday card combines Lovable Legends with Giant Happy Birthday to You! This design is perfect for all those men on your birthday card list!
This charming card by Karin is simply adorable! She used Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables, Butterfly Kisses and a birthday greeting from Special Delivery Add-On.
It’s birthday party time in the aquarium! Samantha created this cute card using Fintastic Friends, Party Animal and Virtual Friends Add-On. I love how she added the Ocean Wave Border and Outside In Stitched Thought Bubbles to enhance the underwater theme!
Christy‘s gorgeous card wishes a berry happy birthday with a cute Berry Special scene! The pretty patterned papers in the background are from Flower Market!
Jenn got creative and made a set of cards to give as a gift! They are beautifully made using Clover Background Stencils and Giant Thank You! They will be great for sending a special thank you for all the birthday gifts!
We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 119 – Card Sketch tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!
