HB2U Hey Birthday Chicks Card

by Joanne James3. March 2021 22:16

Today was one of those days that did not go to plan - do you ever have days like that?! So I'm late squeezing in a quick post for this week's Inspired By Challenge and another entry for the birthday celebrations over at Time Out:


I used both the sketch layout and number inspiration over at Inspired By for my fun birthday card today - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I created a custom sentiment using my Playful Alphabet Dies, flanked by some happy-go-lucky party chicks from the Hey Birthday Chicks bundle. I used some of the Ice Cream Corner designer paper for my background base and carried through the colours of the stripes for the other elements of my card:


Some quick stamping to the inside completes my card:


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Bright, sunny and joyful - what more could you ask in a birthday card? It couldn't be more of a stylistic contrast to your AYSI card and yet both are marvels.

Those little chickies are so cute and definitely look ready to party. Love how you arranged the die-cut letters and the teal blue goes so beautifully with the yellow. The striped background paper screams party-time so definitely adds to the fun project. I'm so very glad you joined our party at TIME OUT!

This card is so fun! I love the stripes in your background and the cute chickens. Very stylish CAS layout too! Thank you for joining us at Time Out!
