Hello!!! Samantha here, sharing a fun, bright, birthday card. Maybe it is just me?…but I love that this card makes me think of candy –– a perfect card to gift to someone on their special day!
Step 1: Apply clear double sided adhesive to the back of coloured cardstock and pattern paper.
Step 2: Select one of the reinforcement dies – die cut the die using the pattern paper and cardstock.
Step 3: Make a template of the die using scrap paper.
Step 4: Using re-positional tape adhere the template to a white card front measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm
Step 5: Remove the backing tape from the die cuts and adhere these in the negative space of the template.
Step 6: Continue to adhere each die cut, completing each row – alternate colours. Remove the template then re position below the finished row.
Step 7: Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the card front is full.
Step 8: Use the birthday sentiments stamp and coordinating die to stamp the sentiment on pink cardstock using black ink. Adhere the sentiment to the card front.
Step 9: Embellish card front with a twine bow and sequins.
Small dies are probably one of my favourite craft items to play with – the best thing about these reinforcement dies is how much time I saved die-cutting rows of circles instead of individual circles. So…I had time to make a few more examples!
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here! It’s hard to believe that March is already here and Spring is only 12 days away. With Spring on my mind, I created this very spring-like Happy Birthday Card.
To create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs. Read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card.
Step One. Die cut a 4″ and a 3″ Stitched Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Choose two spring themed patterned papers. From the first paper, die cut 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. From the second paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. Ink the edges of the papers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From a third piece of coordinating pattern paper, die cut the Flourished Frame out of it. Ink the edges of the frame using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Die cut the Happy Birthday 3 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the entire surface of the words.
Step Five. From the Trio of Leaves, choose two leaves. Die cut the two leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.
Step Six. Die cut the same two leaves out of another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.
Step Seven. Choose two of the Large Flowers from the Large Flower set. Choose two more coordinating patterned papers. Die cut the one large flower twice out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the same large flower twice out of the other patterned paper. Die cut the second large flower twice out of the patterned paper you just used. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Choose two small flowers from the Small Flower Set. You’ll also need two of the patterned papers you’ve already used. Die cut one of the flowers twice out of patterned paper. Die cut the other flower out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Nine. Die cut the centers from the Small Flowers out of one of the patterned papers. Ink the edges of the centers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Ten. Adhere the 4″ rectangle to the 4 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the 3″ rectangle to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle.
Step Eleven. Adhere the flourished frame to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the Happy Birthday sentiment to the 3″ rectangle as desired.
Step Twelve. Adhere the flowers as desired. Each flower will need two large flowers, one small flower and a center.
Step Thirteen. Trim one of the light green and one of the dark green leaves as desired for the bottom right corner of the card front. Adhere the two trimmed leaves together. Adhere the leaves in the bottom right hand corner of the card front. Adhere one large flower over top of the leaves.
Step Fourteen. Trim the remaining leaves as desired for the top left corner of the card front. Adhere the two trimmed leaves together. Adhere the leaves in the top left hand corner of the card front. Adhere the two large flower over top of the leaves.
Step Fifteen. Cut a card base out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 3/4″ x 9″, score at 4 1/2″. Adhere the card front to the card base.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Birthday Card.

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here –– January marks my birthday month! So I thought it fitting to create a fun, bright birthday card using a few of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs smaller dies.
Step 1: Cut pink card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)
Step 2: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Fitted Rounded Square die.
Step 3: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Stitched Rounded Square die.
Step 4: Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the small cupcakes 6x.
Step 5: Assemble all the die cut pieces as shown below. Mix and match the pattern paper and cardstock as desired.
Step 6: Adhere the assembled die-cuts to your card front. Stamp the sentiment using black ink.
Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 8: Die cut the small hearts, and adhere these to the cupcakes on your card front. Embellish the card with enamel dots and a twine bow.
(Optional: Add machine stitched details.)
Step 9: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
I hope you enjoyed today’s fun card tutorial showing you how I like to use smaller dies. Cupcakes are the best! I certainly will be having a few real ones one my birthday to go along side my cupcake greeting card.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Before I start I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. All the best for a healthy, prosperous and crafty year ahead.
One of my favourite dies last year was the Village Edges. I showcased it to create a Holiday Scene, but today I want to show you how versatile it is for any occasion. Below are the steps to create your own Sunset Scene card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a horizontal side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply Distress Oxide Inks using a foam applicator. Starting from the bottom working upwards apply Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick and Dusty Concord. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Village Edges using Black Cardstock. Adhere the bottom layer using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive leaving a 1/4” border. Do not adhere the top layer yet.
Step 4 – Diecut Words 2 – Thinking Of You 3 times using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere Kids Choice Glue and stack up the Diecuts. Apply Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon Completely over the top layer, apply Fired Brick just to the top edge. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Repeat this 2 more times but ink with Versamark. Adhere the sentiment using Kids Choice Glue to top layer of the Village Edges.
Step 5 – Here I did some stamp surgery to get the exact Sentiment. Stamp Safari Saying “Have A” using Versamark. In another sentiment I stamped just the “N”. Next stamp “Birthday” again using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Adhere the top layer Village Edges to the card using Foam Tape.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the Village Edges used in another occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a super fun card to share using the Monkey and Party Accessories dies from Joset Designs. I don’t normally make card sizes other than A2 or 6×6 but for this one I wanted lots of balloons to give the illusion of a floating monkey. The finished card measures 7 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ folded. Below you will find the easy steps to create your own floating monkey card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish 110lbs Cardstock to 7 1/4″ x 7 1/2″, score at 3 3/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card.
Step 2 – Trim Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 6 3/4″. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3″ x 6 1/2″. Stamp Safari Sayings Sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. (I used washi tape to cover Go Bananas before inking the stamp. Be sure to remove the washi tape before stamping). Adhere to card with 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Using Life Changing Brushes apply Distress Oxide Inks on White Soft Finish Cardstock. (I used Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain). Diecut Monkey using the correct colored cardstock for each piece. Assemble the Monkey using Fine Tweezers and Kids Choice Glue. Be sure to use a black fine tip marker to draw the mouth (just follow the embossed area).
Step 5 – Using Life Changing Brushes apply Distress Oxide Inks on scrap pieces of White Soft Finish Cardstock using various colors. Diecut Party Accessories (Balloon and String 8 times). Assemble the string behind the balloon using Kids Choice Glue. I layered all the balloons so it was one piece. Intertwine the string around the tail of the monkey. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.
The Floating Monkey Card makes a fun birthday card that will anyone smile who receives it. Below is a link to all the products used. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hello everyone, it’s Annette Green from the Susan’s Garden Club Design Team here today to share a special birthday card for my Mom.

Hello everyone, Sanna here again. Who does not know the situation, when you suddenly need a nice birthday card, but have nothing ready? And you really don’t want to buy one from the store, as you can create ones yourself. How about bold cardstock strips on a white background? This is what I came up with when I needed to create two birthday cards really quickly:
