Wild Child: Birthday Cards

Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here with you today sharing two cards featuring the new and ah-mazing Wild Child collection! I don’t know about you but I will admit I squealed with delight when I saw this new collection. Not only are the icons super cute, but it has both feminine and masculine sets of embellishments, stickers, and papers; it’s like getting two collections in one. Having a little boy, masculine collections that suit young boys is hard to come by. So yep, this collection ticks all the boxes for me and I was so excited to get playing and creating.

Here are the cards I created to share with you today. I decided to create both a feminine and a masculine card to show you using the same overall design idea.

Here is the process for how the cards came together:

For the first card I have used the more feminine embellishments and papers in the collection. I love the fun and playful nature of Wild Child and decided to embrace that when creating these cards. I love creating a set of cards that look like they are made as a set. When creating the cards this means that what I do to one card I try and replicate on the other card.

For both cards I began by cutting the striped Paper 04 for this card, and cutting it to fit the card base. I then added a layer of Paper 02. The main element of the card is the ‘rainbow chaser’ speech bubble which was actually cut from Paper 02 as well. That paper has all these bold, amazing statements that would be perfect to fussy cut and use as titles on your projects.

I used a lot of foam adhesive when layering together the pieces I’d assembled from this card. I actually made a tag from Paper 01 too. Of course the unicorn was the perfect finishing touch, I wanted the speech bubble to look like it was the unicorn saying it. I also added a typewritten ‘Happy Birthday’ to give the card some meaning for how it may be given.

For the second card I have used the more masculine/boy themed papers and embellishments. Again I have embraced the fun playful theme of the collection and tried to create a bright and fun card to match.

I used the stripe Paper 12 this time for the base as it was blue in colour. The lime green in Paper 10 was the perfect accompanying piece. I also cut the card title ‘superdude from the Paper 10 as well.

Again I added a handmade tag this time from Paper 07 and embellishments including ephemera and stickers around that speech bubble. How cute is the lil dog?!? These cards were honestly so much fun putting together!

Of course a card isn’t complete without an envelope! This was achievable and super quick to make thanks to my excess card stock stash and my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. I had envelopes in minutes that coordinated beautifully and fit the cards perfectly.
