Pretty Pink Posh | Colorful Birthday Card. Video + Sale

Hello friends! Today I am sharing video tutorial showing how to create a colorful Birthday card for a girl using Birthday Friend stamps from Pretty Pink Posh.

Pretty Pink Posh has many stamp sets from the Friends series and many of them can be used to create a card like this. The characters within these sets maintain their size so you can easily combine friends from different sets to tell a story on your cards.

I picked pinks and yellows for this project as primary colors and made it into a Birthday card for a girl, by using greens and blues you can easily change it up and make into a Birthday card for a boy.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

As always, I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel.

CARDS DETAILS

The colors I picked were somewhat influenced by the set of sequins I was planning to use to embellish my card – the Party Time sequin mix. There are yellow, pink and blue sequins in this set; I wanted to color the elements on this card in colors that would match these sequins. It might seem a bit odd – trying to match the coloring to the color of sequins, but I often use this trick when I want to make sure everything will match. Its very easy to pick the right colors that would coordinate or resemble the colors of my sequins and not vice versa. Plus the sequin mixes already have the colors that work quite well together, so why not use that to our advantage?

I started working on my card by stamping nearly all of the images from this stamp set in Copic Marker friendly ink onto white cardstock panel. The only image I didn’t stamp was the little candle. I colored my images using Copic markers. I used (all of these are from my Copic Combo Chart):

  • RV14, RV13, RV11 to color pink
  • Y19, Y15, Y11 to color yellow
  • B02, B00, B000 to color blue
  • E00, E000, E11, E13, E33 to color skin and hair

I cut my images out using coordinating dies and also die-cut identical shapes out of sticky fun foam – I often prefer to use a solid fun foam shape to foam adhesive squares. This adds a lot of stability to my foam mounted elements and prevents sagging.

Next, I white heat embossed Birthday sentiment onto a gray cardstock panel, foam mounted it in the center of a 4 ¼ x 5 ½” white panel and added my colored elements around it. In a way it looks like there’s a Birthday party going on on this card and the friends are dancing and having lots of fun!

Finally, I embellished my card using the sequins I used for my color combo inspiration – I added a lot of sequins in various sizes filling in the gaps in between the images. I also coated some elements using a shimmer pen.

Happy cardmaking!

    1. What a great idea to use the colors of the sequins for the card coloring! Waiting for the new Hero Arts kit to arrive. I’ve never been interested in ordering a kit before, but watching your video … this dang kit kept calling to me. I finally gave in and heeded the call!!! Gracias

    1. This is such a sweet card Yana and I so appreciate you adding the Copic colour combos that you use. I wrote it all down (and will make a colour chart) to keep with my Copic markers. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

    1. Such a cute card! These friend images are adorable and I love how you can mix and match them. The little birthday scene you created is perfect.

    1. Very cute! I thought they were sitting around a table, but a dance floor sounds fun, too! Thanks for the tips on choosing your colors.

    1. Great card. Love the colours. Thank you for the great tips.

    1. This is my first card video since becoming a subscriber, and I LOVE it! I learned so much! For example, I use fun foam, too, but never thought to put double sided stickie tape—what a time-saver! Thanks, Yana! I can’t wait for more!
