Elegant Birthday Card Ideas

Join Christine Smith aka CraftiPotential as she creates some elegant beautiful birthday cards with the Poppy Crafts Leaves Stamp Set. We love how she paired some embossing, vellum, and colourful feathers for her two card designs. She begins by stamping her feathers onto a piece of white card and then diecuts her card fronts and embosses them to add some texture. Embossing white card is a great way to add an instant “fancy factor” to any project. She also adds a little shimmer with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Kiss.

She colours her feathers in various blue/green tones and orange/yellow tones with alcohol markers. Christine adds some fun details to her stamped images (like dots) throughout. Once her feathers are coloured she diecuts some vellum using the Poppy Crafts Flower Die. Adding a bit of delicate vellum to your card is a great way to make it more elegant. She fussy cuts her feathers and mounts all the elements to her cards (as well as her stamped Happy Birthday sentiment) with foam tape and tacky glue.

We hope you were inspired as much as we were by this great process video!
