Picture Perfect Birthday Card and Mini Lunchbox Note

Hay there Peaches! I hope you all have had a wonderful Easter! Mine was quite memorable. My sister and I have started an Easter tradition where we get together, stuff some eggs for our kiddos to hunt, and we all go over to my sister’s house for Easter brunch. This is only our second year and there are only two kiddos old enough to hunt for the eggs, but I have a feeling that our tradition will grow and will reason for many happy memories to come. I will include a few photos at the end of our Easter festivities, but for now, I have a couple cards to share.



Now if you e been following me for a while you know that I like to make mini 3 x 3 versions of my cards to put in my daughter’s lunchbox. I just feel that there’s no point in reinventing the wheel and it doesn’t take much more time to create the smaller version. Sometimes I’ll have to get creative, like when a die that I used on the full size card is way too large for the smaller one or if I’ve created a birthday card, I will just change the sentiment or a few details. That’s what I have done with my cards today. Actually, for this full size card, I never planned on making a smaller version, but after creating it, it felt a bit  disproportionate, so I asked a friend for their opinion (clearly I was too close to the project for an objective view, lol). She recommended that I try a smaller version and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of that, so this it was made!




I started with the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and wanted to stick with the color scheme from the Picture Perfect Birthday Party Suite which is Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Berry Burst, and Bermuda Bay. I happened to glance at the flame stamp in this set and to me, it looked like a petal, so I thought I would try to create a flower with it. I began by stamping the flame in a circle in Peekaboo Peach Ink. You can trace a circle if you’re picky, but I actually just free handed it it turned out just fine. Then I cut a small circle from Berry Burst Cardstock for the center of my flower. I fussy cut my flower out and began adhering the smallest peach colored sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment in a circle, in the center of the flower. Then I die cut some leaves from some Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, and adhered them behind my flower. I stamped my background in Bermuda Bay Ink using another stamp from this set. The final touch was to stamp my sentiment and adhere s piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine to my flowers. I did this for both of my cards. The only difference was that I chose different sentiments for each one. And that’s my cards for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!
