Need a fun, playful, CUTE card making idea to use for making a birthday card to give to a special friend? Lawn Fawn delivers some of the most adorable stamp sets and other card making supplies you could imagine – and you can use them to make a card like the one pictured here. This particular card design features a loveable bear with a gift and a balloon that are all ready to present to the card recipient. A silly but sweet sentiment completes the card; it says “Hoping Your Birthday Is Beary Lovely”.
Lawn Fawn Craft Supplies You’ll Need for Making This Card
- The bear motif is from the “Den Sweet Den” stamp set. Coordinating dies are also available to use for easily cutting out your bear.
- The balloon motif is from the “Scent With Love” add-on stamp set.
- The small gift that the bear is holding is from the “Plan on It” stamp set.
- The sentiment is created from a hodgepodge of different Lawn Fawn stamp sets. The “Hope your birthday is” part of the text is from the “Loads of Fun” stamp set; the “beary” part of the text is from the “Den Sweet Den” stamp set; and I spelled out the “LOVELY” part of the text using Milo’s ABCs stamp set. However, don’t worry if you don’t happen to have all these sets in your stash. You could just use the stamps from any Lawn Fawn ABCs set to stamp out the entire sentiment – or if you already have a Lawn Fawn birthday-themed stamp set, you could use a sentiment from that set to complete your birthday card.
- I created the mountains in the background using the “Mountain” Lawn Clipping stencil and multiple papers from the “Watercolor Wishes” 12”x12” paper collection pack; I made the grass using the Emerald colored paper, the sky using the Larimar paper and the mountains using the Amethyst paper from this pack. I also stamped the balloon and the gift onto the “Carnlelian” paper from this paper pack.
- I stamped the bear on kraft cardstock.
- I made the card base using plain white cardstock.
Other Supplies Needed for Making This Birthday Card
- I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in the Walnut Stain color for stamping the bear, the birthday gift and the balloon.
- I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in the Dusty Concord color for stamping the sentiment.
- I used several colors of Inkjoy ballpoint pens for outlining the mountains and grass.
- I inked around the outside edges of the card with Sapphire Mixed Media ink from Altenew.
- I attached the various card elements to the card base using Glue Dots, Cherry Tape and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
There are a couple of reasons I was inspired to create this card: First of all, my card stash is extremely depleted, and second, the folks over at the Lawnfawnatics blog are having a birthday-themed challenge right now. In general, I enjoy participating in challenges because it usually takes me out of my comfort zone. In this particular case, the challenge wasn’t a hugely challenging one — but it was a useful theme that I was happy to work with. I really enjoyed participating in the challenge, and I’m thrilled to have a super cute birthday card to add to my card stash as a result of my participation. My heartfelt thanks to the team at Lawn Fawn for the fun challenge. It’s always lovely to have a bit of extra motivation for getting new craft projects completed.
