Wanted to keep it simple & quick so we could finish the thank you notes. I used the extra strips of paper left over from the other party stuff, brads, decorative small stickers and the die-cut shapes to make all of these.
Die-cut shapes are great for cards because of the variety of shapes, different patterns/colors and they make it so quick to complete cards. I like the new elements they added that were different from the set of patterns in the paper. My favorite die-cut shape is the circle above where the boy and girl holding hands, it’s the same pattern on the orange paper and it’s so cute. On the inside of the invites I used this same view of boys/girls holding hands with the stamp.
It was a lot of work to make all the thank you cards, invites & other details for the party but I had fun and loved working with this BasicGrey collection. I was very happy to get all of the cards in the mail this week so I can work on NEW things!
One thing that might be hard to believe, with everything I made for this party, is that I still have 7 more huge packs of embellishments items from this collection that I didn’t even get the chance to use: (colorful epoxy stickers, canvas tags, die-cut flower petals, colored rub-ons, chipboard stickers, woolies felt stickers and a ton of the clear rubber stamps).
The good news is that the stickers, tags and woolies will all be great on layouts. The other stuff will be perfect to create a good stash of “happy birthday” cards.
Now that I am all done with this 4th birthday party I am working on just a few handmade things for Gwen’s 1st birthday party next month. I am excited to try a few new things out and can’t wait to how things turn out.
Supplies: BasicGrey Life of the Party Collection Paper, small details decorative brads, pieces die-cut shapes, We R Memory Keepers corner rounder, white Bazzil cardstock, “thanks” rubber stamp.
