Big Birthday Wishes

Here are a few cards using the Big Birthday Wishes set from Our Craft Lounge. This set is great for cards or projects where the sentiment is the focal point. There are a couple of images that come in the set, but it is primarily a sentiment set.

For this first card, I used some patterned paper from the Butterflies and Blossoms Stack along with some die cut butterflies to frame the sentiment.


In my second card, I made more of a masculine birthday card. The paper along with some distressing and a little hemp helped to make this card have a more masculine feel.

The last project I have using this set is perfect for a kid's birthday. I created a little box that inserted a gift card inside the box. The sentiment is placed on the outside of the box with some of the balloon images from the set decorating the outside. I cut out the balloon images, added glue and then dunked them in glitter. I used some embroidery floss for the balloon strings.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!
