Hello, Friends! Your birthday is one day when you should be treated like royalty! And what better way to get the celebration started than with a beautiful handmade card? This Celebrate Life Birthday Card with gorgeous papers, flowers and chipboard from Little Birdie Crafts is quick and easy to make, but still fit for a queen!
Begin by making a 6″ x 6″ top fold card base. Then cover it with a panel of the gorgeous Celebrate Life floral design paper.
Next, stitch a 5″ x 5″ panel of the pink woodgrain pattern to a square cloth doily. (I found this one in a thrift store!) Center this panel and adhere it over the floral print.
Now use a circle die to cut out the bird image from the 12×12 paper pad. If you don’t have a circle die, you can trace around a saucer, small bowl or other round item and cut by hand.
Next we get to have a little mixed media fun with Little Birdie Primed Chipboard and embossing powders. Tap the chippies with VersaMark Embossing Ink. Then sprinkle on some shabby white embossing powder and heat until the resins melt. Add flat back pearls, a crown embellishment and a little nest filled with colored eggs to the gorgeous filigree chipboard.
I also heat embossed a Little Birdie Chipboard branch in the same way. Then I added pretty pastel Fairy Sparkle Whitney Roses and Fairy Sparkle Calypso flowers.
TIP: Add soft, shabby chic vibes to the card by dry brushing the flowers with white chalk paint. Then dilute the paint and spatter it over the card front to add even more of a shabby chic vibe.
Here’s a peek inside the card. Decorate a side pocket with a 3×4 journal card and tuck in a little chocolate treat. After all, it’s a birthday party! Then die cut a Little Birdie Oval Tag with your Dream Cut machine. Stamp a sentiment on the tag, decorate with ribbon, flowers and mini key. Now we are ready to party!
I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks you can use to make a birthday card that’s fit for royalty.
