Hi friends! Today I’ve got a fun cut file for you, one that I think will come in handy over and over again. We all need birthday cards on hand, right? This design is very versatile, so depending on what paper you use, it can be totally customized to what you need. Boy or girl, young or old — wait, not old — let’s say blessed with wisdom. 🙂
I would recommend sticking with one color for the “birthday” word, since it is a script font and all the letters are connected. But for the other words, going with different patterns in the same general shade creates a very fun “patchwork” look.
You may notice I used a stack of fabric in the background of this photo. Really that is just because I had it handy, but as I snapped the photo I realized it was a very appropriate prop, as this style of cardmaking — utilizing lots of different bits of patterned paper — definitely has similarities to quilting: Color selection, mixing prints, varying the scale of patterns you use, etc. The whole process is so fun, I love it!
