Simple Birthday Cards Using Artisan Textures
It is easy to overlook the Artisan Textures cling mount stamp set in our annual catalog if you’re not looking for cool backgrounds.
You’ll be surprised what fun projects you can create with these unobtrusive-looking blots. Never judge a smudge by its smear!
I wanted to show off two easy birthday cards and the Artisan Textures stamp set, during one of my Facebook LIVE, Coffee Greetings with ThePaperCraftAddict, and I did so by creating a masculine card with blue tones and a slightly more femanine card using peachy colors.
The cards are basic and let me tell you how I made them:
Masculine with Blue Tones
I started with Night of Navy card base in the hamburger style, measuring 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored down the middle at 4.25″.
The mat I created in Pool Party cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.25″. I ran it through my die cutting machine with the subtle 3D embossing folder to add another element of texture and adhered it flat to my cardstock.
In Whisper White cardstock I stamped a random pattern using Night of Navy, Pool Party and Crumb Cake. For the sentiment I used Perennial Birthday stamp set! I love the big clear, ‘Happy Birthday’, stamp.
Feminine with Peach Tones
I used the same concept for my girly card and I cut everything the same.
I used Peekaboo Peach (which is sadly now retired) cardstock for my base. The mat is created out of So Saffron cardstock. The colors I used are Peackaboo Peach, So Saffron, and Night of Navy.
The only difference (and it’s noticeable) is the paper ribbon at the bottom in Night of Navy. I created that using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.
Both of these simple cards are perfect for the person in your life who really doesn’t like a lot of fuss or like me, I have a dear friend who does not love floral cards.
The cards are simple enough that I took the time to decorate the inside of them as well.
