Quick bday-cards for the kids!
GlueArts Designer: Ania Lexander

My kid is a true son of mine; he can forget that he's gotten a birthday invitation and walk up to me and, hand me an invitation and say "oh by the way, I'm attending XX's birthday in 30 minutes". I've often hurried fixing a quick card & racing to the toy store to find a proper gift before the start of the while I prefer to create each card with a recipient in mind, I realize I need to prepare a few backup-cards for these cases. These stamp-sentiments from Paper Smooches are perfect for such generic cards!

Gather some smaller and larger scraps. For such cards, it's not important that they're huge (my kid normally only writes the short sentiment "happy birthday, love XX" in his cards), so it's a great way to use them in my opinion.

Cut all the pieces and adhere with permatac.

I like to add stitches to the pieces, but it's a personal choice.

I'm no stamper, so I needed a few tries to get it right. Once I did, I daresay I rocked these stamps! You can see how stamp #3 finally came out all crisp and bold and great! (I made sure to give several extra pushes to the whole sentiment with my fingers/thumb. I have no idea if this is the right or wrong way to do this - I just know it worked for me smile.gif )
