Quick & Easy Birthday Cards

Quick & Easy Birthday Cards

I’m excited to share with you today’s project.  The Occasions catalogue has just recently gone live and there are some amazing new and exciting products to add to your collection of paper crafting supplies.

One of my favourite new products is this Picture Perfect Party 6″x 6″ patterned paper pack.  The paper is photographed on one side and patterned on the other.

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “How do you decided on what colours to use?” First thing I decided on was the pattern paper.  Stampin’ Up! make is super easy for you that they list all the colours that coordinate with each patterned paper pack.

Here’s a picture of my project

Picture Perfect Birthday

  • I could have used Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, or Peakaboo Peach, but for this card I choose Bermuda Bay.  Each colour will give you a slightly different look so experiment til you find the one you like best.
  • The greeting comes from Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Stamp and has been stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Silver Embossing powder.  I’ve used Silver embossing powder to match with the silver bow that’s in the patterned paper.  (you could also ink your greeting using Bermuda Bay to match your cardbase) TIP:  Black ink is very versatile and will go with any/most designs.  If you choose to add a colour try matching to a colour that you see in the patterned paper you’re using.
  • The greeting has been die cut with the Stitched Framelit Dies and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • And to tie the silver together I finished with adding a piece of Silver Natural Trim behind my greeting.


I often get questions about what supplies I use in videos. To make it easier for my blog friends, all supplies are listed below! 🙂 click on the image you can purchase directly from my online store.

Next time you need to create a quick card, grab a piece of patterned paper and let the colours help you design and create your project.
