Lawn Fawn Video {7.20.21} Kara’s Clever Simple Stripes and Giant Happy Birthday to You Cards

Kara shows us how to use one design to create two different cards! She combined Simple Stripes: Diagonal with Giant Happy Birthday to You for the floating front design then took the cards in two different directions! You can watch her video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

In the video, Kara shows how she removed a section from the card front to create a “floating front” open design! For her clean and simple version, she included cute Tiny Birthday Friends with “swinging” piñata!

After alternating the Peacock and Mermaid stripes from Simple Stripes: Diagonal, Kara used Giant Happy Birthday to You to anchor each side leaving an open space! She layered a second die cut inside the card for stability and a pretty finish when the card is open!

For this card, Kara switched up the basic design with Happy Hibiscus and Tropical Leaves dies! She included an oval shape (the coordinating die from Giant Birthday Messages) for a different look! And to give this card even more individuality, Kara alternated a combination of Textured Dot cardstock and Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper stripes with Lacy Borders!

Thank you so much for sharing these fantastic birthday cards with us, Kara! I love the fun “floating” cut-out design!


Thanks for visiting!
Have an amazing day!

  1. Kara, you’re fantastic. So are your cards. I like the one w/ shades of aqua/teal better, but that is just b/c that is my go-to color. Plus I gravitate more toward CAS than busy… but I often like busy, too. It’s complicated. (sigh) Anyway, both these cards are terrific and I thank you for the video.

    p.s. Is it wrong that I could spend hours and hours watching LF videos??
