Pretty in Pink Birthday Card Tutorial

By Yulia Kuznetsova


Hello friends! In today’s step by step tutorial, I’m going to show you how you can create such beautiful cards. I made them for my twin nieces. They have a birthday in February and I hope they like these cards)




Let's start!

You just need a few sheets of paper, a chipboard embellishment and a couple of Ephemera cards. And of course gorgeous flowers Graphic45!


The size of my postcard 16.5 cm x 10 cm


Prepare the details for the inside and outside of the card. Attention! These details are slightly smaller than the base of the card.



All of the following details of the postcard I glued to cardboard. So the volume is created and the card looks more interesting.




With this collection of paper perfectly combines gold details-for example, powder for embossing.



Use a card from a set of paper and chipboard to make the image complete.


That's better, isn't it?


I think we need some details.) For example, flowers, leaves and.... little crown of a real Princess)




Glue the details and the cards are ready!


Wow! You also wanted to become a Princess?)



I hope I inspired you! With such a magnificent collection of paper cannot be otherwise!)” ~Yulia

These cards are just lovely. So easy to put together as well. I just love this paper and although I made a journal for my 11 year old granddaughters birthday I’m so tempted to buy more as I used up every bit of the kit. Even making flowers from the script. A great creative project Yulia.

Some of my favorite "Daily Inspirations" are cards. I don't know why, but I have a difficult time picturing cards from Graphic 45 papers--probably because they're so beautiful I could just fold a sheet in half and send it off! Loved this tutorial. Thanks!
