Looking for unusual card making ideas? Want to create a fun, unique, one-of-a-kind birthday card for a loved one or friend? If so, you’ll definitely want to consider taking a look at Lawn Fawn’s collection of quirky, funny, cute and unique craft supplies. I’ve used their supplies to create this this playful birthday card featuring an adorable bear motif and a blended ink background area. If you want to make your own birthday cards similar to this one, read on for a complete supply list and step-by-step instructions.

Lawn Fawn Craft Supplies You’ll Need for Making This Card

  • To make a card similar to this one, you’ll need a bear stamp. Lawn Fawn offers bunches of different stamp sets featuring bears. The one I have in my stash is the bear motif from the “Den Sweet Den” stamp set. There are also Coordinating dies available that you can use for easily cutting out your bear.
  • The cute little present that the bear is holding is from the Lawn Fawn “Plan on It” stamp set.
  • I created the sentiment using a few different Lawn Fawn stamp sets. The “Hope your birthday is” part of the text is included in 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, there are other ways you could arrive at this same sentiment, or a similar one, if you don’t happen to have all of these particular stamp sets in your craft supplies stash. You could stamp this sentiment using the stamps from any Lawn Fawn ABCs set – or if you already have any other Lawn Fawn birthday-themed stamp set in your stash, you could choose a birthday sentiment from that set to complete your card.
  • I created the the main background for this card using the Emerald patterned paper from the “Watercolor Wishes” 12”x12” paper collection 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

There are a couple of reasons I was inspired to create this card: First of all, my card stash is nearly empty, and second, the cool people over at the Lawnfawnatics blog are hosting a birthday-themed challenge right now. In general, I enjoy participating in challenges because they usually take me out of my comfort zone. In the case of this inclusive birthday challenge, the challenge theme 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.
