Birthday Cards with the Brie kit | Mandy Melville

Hi everyone!

Mandy here with you today to share some more inspiration using the beautiful ‘Brie’ kit. This week on the inspiration page, we are sharing birthday themed projects, so I thought it would be fun to create a set of two birthday cards!

To create the first card, I first adhered a strip of the pink ‘gradient grid’ patterned paper across the bottom half of the card. I also tucked one of the branding strips under the top edge of the pink patterned paper to add a little pop of yellow to the card. Where the pink and the yellow papers joined, I added some of the cute pom pom trim from the Henley kit. I love the texture that this adds to the card! I stamped the word ‘celebrate’ onto the card, using a stamp from the ‘Hooray!’ stamp set. This stamp set is perfect if you enjoy making birthday cards!

Next I got busy fussy cutting some of the beautiful florals out of the Brie floral patterned paper. I adhered them to the card, using craft foam under one of the pieces to the give it some lovely dimension. The other cluster I glued straight to the card, but I only added glue to the centre of it, as I wanted the outside leaves to lift up nicely. I finished the card off with a couple of the layering butterflies from the kit, and a few of the Brooke Bitty Puffy stickers.

For my next card, I decided on using that cute black and white spotty patterned paper as the background, and I matted it on the gradient pink patterned paper to give it a thin border around the edge of the card. I also adhered one of the journaling cards to the centre of the card, and this provided a base for me to add my embellishments and sentiment to.

I fussy cut some more of the florals to embellish this card with, and I also cut out one of the frames from the ‘frames’ patterned paper. I used this to stamp my sentiment onto, once again using a stamp from the ‘Hooray!’ stamp set. I adhered the frame using craft foam for added dimension, and then I finished the card off with a few more of the Brooke Bitty Puffy stickers.

Most of the work in creating these cards was in the fussy cutting (which I enjoy doing)! Once that was done, they really came together very quickly, and I love how they turned out! I plan on giving one to my dear church friend, whose birthday is this Sunday, and the other to my Mum who will celebrating her birthday in just over a week.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I’ll be back next month with some more projects to share with you, using the beautiful Felicity Jane products!

Oh wow! These cards are beautiful! I might need to scraplift them :-) To me it always seems to be so hard to make cards, but yours look perfect ♡
