Have those January birthday’s crept up on you? You’re only just over Christmas yet those January celebrations are looming? Here’s a quick and easy card!
First of all, grab a birthday cake shaped card, or maybe cut one out of your scan and cut! Shaped cards are still very popular and can be found easily in packs of 5 or cut it out by hand.
Next, grab a die that’s a great background. I’ve used my favourite ever birthday die from Tattered Lace which I think works really well here!
I wanted to make be candles look lit, but I am rubbish at colouring and wanted a bit of sparkle! I used rhinestones here.
Last of all, I wanted the candles to stand out so I used some chevron style washi tape, this particular one is from La-de-Dah.
..and Viola! A very easy, quick yet effective card for those last minute birthday card makes!
Bank holiday weekend is here and I am off and thought I would get some crafting in! Last week I bought some Trimcraft Christmas Washi Tape from ‘The Range’ to experiment with as I have never used it before!
Turns out as long as you have something to decorate it’s not difficult to make some truly lovely and very homemade looking.
I decorated a candle first and luckily the tape is very forgiving and peels off easily for you to have a few attempts. It has a masking tape feel to it but a nice adhesive that will stick to almost anything I think, I haven’t found anything it won’t stick to yet!
I moved into a kraft card box which had come with some jewellery I got a while ago. What a transformation! I can’t wait to give this box to a lucky loved one this Christmas.
I can’t express how easy this is and what a great professional touch it gives to any item. Go wild with some Washi!
