Two Festive Birthday Card Ideas Everyone Will Love! {Impression Obsession}

Oh goodness, my friends! I've been so excited to share the colorful and fun birthday cards I made with Impression Obsession's latest release! This festive array of birthday goodness will be product you (and I!) pull from again and again and again . . .as long as people keep having birthdays, we are going to LOVE making cards with these dies!

Both of today's cards are almost die-cutting exclusive. There's only a hint of stamping involved, plus a little bit of simple stenciling. Let's talk first about the HAPPY HAPPY birthday card. To begin this card, I used the A4 Windows stencil set. See those aqua ovals in the background? Just sponge some ink and make the perfect landing spot for your big, bold birthday sentiment. 
I may have mentioned one of my favorite die-cutting techniques is to just jump in and die cut a bunch of elements in my chosen color scheme, and then mix and match to get some cards put together. That's exactly what I did for today's cards. I cut the happy birthday sentiment from about five colors to start with, and picked out what I wanted. Why just say Happy birthday, when you can say HAPPY HAPPY birthday!?

Next, I die cut a bunch of balloons in my same color palette and tucked them around my sentiment. This card was finished off with a few little stamped stars and enamel dots. I LOVE how this one came together.  This idea could be easily duplicated in whatever color palette you love!
Here's another idea with the balloon and birthday dies. Some polka dotted paper became the base of this design, paired with more of my stash of die-cut goodies. I love that the balloon dies include dies for the string, but you could also draw it, or use actual string if you want. Lots of options here!

Today, my friends, is just the beginning. The designers at Impression Obsession are celebrating the May release with a blog hop that's jam packed with inspiration just for YOU! I hope you'll hop around and see what everyone else has been creating. And then, pop back here tomorrow for the second day! (I might have MORE adorable celebration cards to share. . .and they're soooooo cuuuuuuuute!)
