Birthdays, it’s one thing we all have in common, and as a card maker I always need a supply of cards ready to go. I must confess I’m not the most organised when it comes to getting cards in to the mail for someone’s birthday – I have a great idea for a card, I plan to make it, but the time just never comes, and then it’s too late. I’m trying to get out of this habit this year, and today’s project is certainly going to help!
The Perennial Birthday Project Kit was one of the first things that caught my eye when I saw the Spring/Summer catalogue for the first time. I love the gold foil details, the colour palette, the use of fonts and the gorgeous floral imagery. I also really love that all the supplies for the cards are included, and, hello!? have you seen the beautiful box it comes with?
Complete with month dividers written up with each day, you can write everyone’s birthdays on the relevant tab, and stash enough cards for each months’ birthday behind the divider, what a clever idea!
I sat down one sunny afternoon in my craft room, and put together the whole kit. It took me around 2 hours from start to finish and was a lovely easy kit to create. There are full colour directions on how to make each card, along with written instructions with details such as how long to cut your ribbon and what to stamp where.
Now I have 16 birthday cards ready to go when I need them, so no more excuses for missing a birthday!
I’m making a commitment to send more handmade birthday cards, so, if you’d like to receive a card from me on your birthday, complete your details below and I’ll add you to my birthday list! Let’s all send more cards, because you can’t put a Facebook message on your mantelpiece!
All the products used to create this project are listed below, and link you directly to my store. Don’t forget that from January 3rd to March 31st, you can earn FREE Sale-A-Bration products with every £45 purchase!
