Samantha’s Sweet Critter Birthday Card

We invite you to join us for our current All Things Birthday Challenge! It will be open until Sunday, March 20th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your creative birthday ideas!

Samantha created a birthday card with some super cute critters! She started with a Fancy Lattice Backdrop in white layered over a Speckled Eggshell panel. She added this to a Ballet Slippers panel to create a pretty pastel background.

Next, she stamped, colored and die cut images to create a sweet critter birthday celebration! She combined Birthday Before ‘n Afters, Butterfly Kisses, Really High Five, Dandy Day and Scootin’ By. For the greeting she stamped a birthday message from Wavy Sayings on a Simple Wavy Banner.

Thank you so much for inspiring us today, Samantha! This card is so adorable!

Happy crafting friends! We can’t wait to see your All Things Birthday creativity!

Hearts are a perfect theme for celebrating the birthday of a special someone! Jessica brilliantly combined Scent with Love, Lots of Hearts Background Stencils and Giant Happy Birthday to You to create an amazing birthday card!

Franci chose Scootin’ By to create an adorable card to celebrate a birthday or any happy day! She used our new Mini Slimline Stackables dies to make her card “fun-sized”!

Caly also used the Mini Slimline Stackables dies, this time to make the perfect backdrop for the Really High Five critters! She added some stenciled clouds and a fun birthday sentiment!

Swan Soirée and Bayou Backdrop are the perfect choice to welcome a new baby! Samantha made this card special with pretty glitter cardstock!

Joyce combined Giant Happy Birthday to You with Critter Concert to send a birthday greeting! The triple layered sentiment is a standout! She cleverly used Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to easily create a beautiful blue sky!

Karin‘s beautiful card features Unicorn Picnic! She combined it with Scripty Congrats to create a card that is perfect for lots of happy occasions!

Christy‘s birthday card is just so charming! The little scene fits perfectly on Mini Slimline Stackables and features Furry and Bright and a “pawsome” greeting from Say What? Pets! She filled in the scene with the log from Toadally Awesome and birthday images from Party Animal and Elphie Selfie!

Samantha created a party-ready card! She combined the taco from Year Nine with the avocado from Let’s Toast with party hats and balloons from Party Animal! She added the sentiment on a Fancy Wavy Banner and created a stenciled backdrop with Brick Stencil!

Jenn‘s fantastic birthday card features a gathering of our special birthday gift critters! It includes our current birthday gift, Party Pig! She stenciled confetti in the background and included a Big Scripty Words greeting combined with a sentiment from Purrfectly Wicked!
