Fabulous Birthday Cards with Sparkle

One of the most important kind of extra cards to have on hand would be Birthday cards. I mean, how often do we need a quick card, either for a last minute Birthday invitation or a forgotten birthday? I’d say these are definitely female-oriented cards, and maybe more for the younger set. I’d love to get one, but I guess it’s up to the Birthday person!

Either way, I am ALL ABOUT glitter and color, oh boy do I love color! Who wouldn’t want to get fabulous birthday cards with sparkle?

Both cards are made with a set of Doodlebug Design Glitter Sets.     When I purchased this chunky glitter I loved the colors, but the big chunky glitter was too enticing! I just had to create something with them. I adore the colored glitter on top of colored cardstock, it really makes the colors pop!

To cut these letters I used my Cricut Machine and the Robotz cartridge. For the word happy, I used Paper Lace. I also used the Shadow of the Robotz font on the white card.

Basically I used Cricut Craft Room and cut the whole word out in each color. I used two letters for two cards from each color, but you should create as many cards as you have colors. When deciding on the glitter, I went rainbow colors, then reverse rainbow. I adore how much the colors pop against the black.

To adhere the glitter, I used Elmer’s glue and just my finger tip, and painted the letter with the glue. Then I sprinkled the glitter on each letter, and let the glue dry completely. After they were dry, I added the black shadow to one set, then added foam tape to each letter. I love the popped up look that gives.

To finish the cards, I used strips of paper and gems. plus some stickers from SRM Press.  Fun and Bright and Funky! cute cards to brighten anyone’s day!

Enjoy!
