It's Mel here for a fun, little extra dare :) This one is Easy Peasy Happy Birthday Cards. You know the times when you've suddenly realised that you need a card and there is only enough time left to create something fast and simple (because you've left it until the last minute to start).
Well...the mid week little extra is just for you - create something fast and cute in advance so you aren't caught off guard with those last minute birthday cards ever again :))
Another quick idea is to print (or type/stamp) your birthday message, cut into strips and adhere on the card. Add a small embellishment under the message for a nice finishing touch.
Using transparencies for the background of your card makes a very speedy card. Add a die-cut, hand stamped message and small embellishment to complete the look. You can hide the adhesive (used for holding the transparency in place) behind your die-cut.
