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!

Elise mixed pretty shades of cardstock using the Simple Stripes: Diagonal die to create a beautiful set of birthday cards! With a background this bright and happy, all she needed to add is a fun Giant Happy Birthday die cut, offset layered with Pixie Dust Sparkle!

Latisha chose bright rainbow colors of cardstock for her Simple Stripes: Diagonal background! She colored the Giant Birthday Messages greeting to match, then she die cut it with the coordinating die.

I love the combination of the Mermaid and white Simple Stripes: Landscape with these happy yellow sunflowers! Audrey grouped the sunflowers from Our Friendship Grows around the Giant Birthday Message to create a gorgeous birthday card!

I love Megan‘s super clever “toucan” card! She mixed and matched Tiny Gift Box Add-On sets including Chick and Duck and Raccoon and Fox; he looks adorable framed by the new Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-On! For the background, she inked up Simple Stripes: Portrait stripes, then added a stripe of Storm Cloud cardstock to the top and bottom. The Toucan Do It sentiment is the perfect way to send a note of thanks!

Chari‘s adorable birthday design features our Tiny Birthday Friends with a large outline sentiment from Giant Birthday Messages! I love how she colored the letters with rainbow colors to match the colorful paper!

Elena added the cute Toucan Do It critters and Slimline Tropical Leaves Border to her Simple Stripes: Diagonal background! With a Giant Happy Birthday to You greeting, this amazing card is quick and easy to make!

Mindy‘s gorgeous card uses just die cuts except for the sentiment. Starting with a cheery mix of cardstock for the Simple Stripes: Landscape background, she added the Delightful Daisy outlines as a pretty layer on top!

Tammy‘s birthday card is so sweet! She used an Outside In Stitched Rectangle panel of our new Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper for the background. Then she combined images from Really High Five with a greeting from our new Giant Birthday Messages set. I love how she colored the balloons, gifts and cake to coordinate with the colors of the greeting!

Audrey used the stripes created with Simple Stripes: Portrait to give the look of the ocean, from light to dark as it goes deeper. She paired our cute shark from Duh-nuh with his new counterpart from the Duh-nuh Flip Flop set!

Lynnette used the new Simple Stripes: Portrait turned on its side to create a cool Father’s Day card! She added a layer of vellum at the top so the Oliver’s Stitched ABCs and the Father’s Day Line Border stand out!

Grace‘s amazing birthday card is a show-stopper! She used the Simple Stripes: Landscape in a clever way too! She removed one of the stripes to leave a gap between each one; its the perfect way to let the Holographic cardstock shine through! She added more holographic fun by using it for the Giant Happy Birthday to You greeting! With a Stitched Cupcake, colorful gems and a sparkly sentiment, this is one memorable birthday card!

Yainea used Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to make a pair of polka dotted Goodie Bags! The Giant Birthday Messages are the perfect over-sized shape to add a festive greeting to the perfect gift in a small package!
