Sweet Birthday Card

Hey Crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest card using The Crafty Pickle flair.

My sweet friend from high school (yep, we’ve been friends a LONG time!) had a birthday a week ago and I made her this card:

hbd 2u card

It’s a pretty simple card, using scrap papers from  my stash, some rumpled ribbon, foam alphas and this very cute elephant flair button! She adores elephants and when I first saw this button, she came to mind!

Isn’t the flair button the cutest?! I just love it and hope she enjoys this sweet card as well.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope it’s a crafty one for you!

Greeting FlairTastic Friday!!!

Happy Friday Everyone!

#FlairTastic Friday

Every Friday though the summer months we will bring you a new idea/concept using flair. Your not going to want to miss these fun posts! These ideas will come from not only our designers but also super neat flairtastic ideas we find from our customers and other talented papercrafters. Make sure that when you share any of your projects on Instagram or Facebook using flair, that you tag it #FlairTasticFriday. You just might see your own photo featured here on our blog!

This week we will be showing you some awesome greeting cards by our wonderful design team!!! Each Design Team member uses flair differently to make a fun greeting card …and with this flair it is nice and flat to fit on any card!!!

Here is Joann’s super fun FlarTastic Greeting Card I love how she used the vellum as an overlay to soften the background paper …so great!!! And how she used the Something Shiny Slightly Cupped Sequin to follow your eye down the card for interest!!! And bunching the twine behind the Orange Pop of Flair …i am so going to steal that idea!!!

5 & 12: Birthday card ideas from Stephanie!

Hi Crafty Friends!
Check out the absolutely adorable birthday cards that TCP designer, Stephanie has for you today!
Hey y’all! Hope this Tuesday finds you well & (if you’re in the US), getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday! It’s such a great time for being with family & giving thanks for all that we are fortunate enough to  have. And then, it’s time to gear up for Christmas! While I love the season & am really excited, we have some birthdays to celebrate first! My nephew has a birthday in November & my youngest nephew’s birthday
is on December 12. Leah’s birthday is December 10 & she will be 12 this year! Holy-time is flying!!!
So before I dive head first into the Christmas season, I made some birthday cards. Both feature flair & sequins from The Crafty Pickle.

I used the Birthday button flair set & the Winter Sequins mix for both of my cards.
For my second card, I started with sketch #111 fromCardabilities and made Leah’s birthday card
I love the shimmer of this “Happy Birthday” flair! It’s great for a 12 year-old girl!!
be sure to visit The Crafty Pickle shop to see these products, and more!
Now that these birthday cards are behind me, I can make more Christmas projects!!
Have a good one!
~Stephanie
