Quick, Cute Birthday Cards

Hello there! It’s Meghann Andrew here with you, and I don’t know about you, but I love making cards! I always try to have a stash of cards on hand for when I’m rushing to a birthday party, or I need to send a note of thanks. Birthday cards are what I grab for the most, and I couldn’t believe how perfect the Stay Colorful collection was for making quick and beautiful celebratory greeting cards with its saturated colors and celebratory sentiments!


Each one of these cards came together quickly and easily using some colorful paper and a few embellishments to add sparkle and texture. Let’s take a closer look at each one:


How perfect is the “hip hip hooray” sentiment on this graphic and colorful card? When I saw this on the cardstock sticker sheet, I knew that the Stay Colorful collection would be perfect for birthday sentiments and graphics! When backed with a large yellow circle, the sentiment stands out against the sprinkled background, and the “hooray” manufacturer’s strip from the Jive Talkin’ paper created the perfect line to ground that circle to the card front. Just a few sequins and rhinestones finish the card off perfectly without adding too much to distract from the clean and simple design.


Don’t we all wish that we could ride a unicorn on our birthday? Since we can’t, putting one on a birthday card seems appropriate! The large tag cut from the Jive Talkin’ paper contrasted perfectly against the teal heart background of the card, and the lovely white unicorn from the layered sticker embellishment pack made the design pop! A rainbow of rhinestones and enamel dots added a bit of whimsy and sparkle to the card.


We should all treat ourselves a bit on our birthday, and this little phrase cut from the 6” x 6” paper pad is perfect when paired with sweet treat stickers and die-cuts. Put these on a fun, multicolored polka dot background, and this card shouts, “happy birthday!” Just a few enamel stars are all that the card needed to finish it off and add a different texture.


I hope that these fun cards created with the Stay Colorful collection have inspired you to create your own simple and easy greetings instead of buying store-bought when headed to your next birthday party! Thanks so much for coming by the blog today!
