A Super Fun and Punny Succulent Birthday Card with Ivy

It’s the start of a new week, so we have some super fresh and fun inspiration for you! Ivy has a friend who recently turned the big 5-0 so she made a punny birthday card to celebrate!

To create this large fold out card, Ivy started with 2 card bases! She did some inky magic on the background in shades of green to complement her design!

In order to reinforce the theme of her punny greeting “50 Succs”, Ivy colored 10 of the succulent borders from Simply Celebrate Summer!

Ivy used Louie’s 123s and Finley’s ABCs cut from both Black Licorice and Sparkle Spring cardstock. She layered them to create the irreverent but fun greeting!

I love this super cute card so much, Ivy! Thanks for sharing your creativity today!

Elena’s Ice Cream Party

It’s party time again! Elena designed adorable decor for her daughter’s eighth birthday party with a sweet ice cream theme!

Elena’s fun ice cream theme starts with the adorable party invitation! I love how she added ice cream cone details to the Louie’s 123s number 8! She framed the customized die cut with a Mini Picture Frame!

The sweet Stitched Party Banner die cut from Gotta Have Gingham – Ruth paper continues the cute theme with Louie’s ABCs spelling out the guest of honor’s name in ice cream cones!

Elena used Copic markers and a Copic-friendly pen to add the brilliant details to the die cut letters!

The Scalloped Treat Box favors get the ice cream cone treatment too! Elena used Paper Bag cardstock for the “cone” and Ballet Slippers cardstock for the pink “ice cream” which was fussy cut to look like a drippy ice cream cone! This cute party favor is finished with a Tiny Tag and a greeting from How You Bean?! To add the multi-colored sprinkles, Elena cut apart the group of 3 sprinkles in the Sweet Friends set and stamped them individually in Merman, Celery Stick, Grape Soda and Peachy Keen ink!

What could be better than cupcakes baked in cones and frosted to resemble ice cream with colorful sprinkles! The cute flags are made with our Everyday Sentiment Banners!

The water bottles carry out the ice cream theme with more decorated Louie’s 123s!

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing party ideas with us, Elena! I love this super “sweet” ice cream party decor!
