How to Make a Fun Birthday Card Two Different Ways

I always need birthday cards - don't you? Making them is extra fun and easy using the Sunshine Tag Set from FSJ. This set comes with two 12x12 sheets of pre-printed tags. Detail cut them, or use the FSJ Bread Tag Die to cut them out, (a variety of other tag and rectangle dies will be adorable and work well with these pre-printed tags too!)
I really really love the fun color combination on today's card. I never would have thought that Haystack would look fantastic with Cosmic Grape - but I am TOTALLY digging it, especially along with some Cool Pool and Turbo Teal! (Like I always say...EVERYTHING looks good with Cool Pool.) The star was die-cut from a Gel Press print I had tucked away - it's mostly Turbo Teal ink and a little Sparkle Silk. (That's what gives it those lighter color spots.) 
Next up, a REALLY simple card idea. You can borrow this idea, and whip these up in any color scheme you'd like, in about ten minutes. This idea is perfect for those last minute card needs! Just do some simple stamping with the Birthday Pop Stamp Set onto a panel of Whip Cream cardstock, and add a strip of washi tape and a paper clip.  Then, attach it to a Turbo Teal card base and add a splatter of Black Silk. 
I like this card idea because it would work for kids, adults, men, women - ANYONE. Change up the colors accordingly, and it's sweet and simple for anyone!
