Occasions – XL Collection by Shabby Princess; Review Part 3

Just a quick installment in my series of posts about the wonderful Occasions – XL Collection by Shabby Princess. Everything I used to make the card below comes with this kit!

When I found out that my son was due in August, I was so happy – I instantly knew he would fit right in :)! There are SO many people in my family who have August birthdays, myself included, that it has become a tradition to have a big summer birthday bash to celebrate. Needless to say, I had a lot of birthday cards to hand out this summer :). I used this kit to make a bunch of them, but I forgot to take pictures of them all, so the only one I have a photo of is the one I made for Gabe (because I still have it, naturally). I kept the design nice and simple for this one – after all, he was way more interested in the gift it went with, his new blankie :)!

Birthday Card

Technique: To make this card, I simply printed the star patterned paper on a heavy piece of matte photo paper. I cropped it to fit an envelope I had on hand, and used my scoring tool (that comes with my Fiskars paper trimmer) to mark a line for folding the card over.  I used decorative edged scissors to trim the front bottom edge of the card, and to trim around the “Happy Birthday” word art I had also printed out. I cut a rectangle of the blue polka dot paper to fit the width of the card, and adhered that to the center of the card. I adhered the sentiment to the center of that, and voila! A cute, happy card to match all the rest of Gabe’s birthday stuff. Next up – fun party decorations that are easy to make using my FREE template :)!
