Quick & Simple Birthday Card

Hey Neat & Tangled fans! Rachel here today with a super simple birthday card when you need something in a hurry (story of my life!). Patterned paper is my favorite go-to when I'm short on time.

I love a clean and simple card, but gorgeous papers add a touch of whimsy and interesting detail in no time at all. I knew I wanted some free-flying balloons for this card, so I chose a cloud patterned paper to provide a subtle background. To make life even easier, I kept all the paper accents from the same paper pad (Hello Sunshine from Pink Paislee).


Using the Just For You stamp set, I fussy cut 3 balloons - 1 from solid grey and 2 from coordinating papers. I layered them on the card at different heights and adhered them with foam tape. I added some twine bows and left the strings long and loose to give them card a bit of movement. I stamped the sentiment, also from Just For You, onto another sheet of paper from the same paper pad and created a banner along the bottom of the card.

There you have it - a professional looking card sure to brighten someone's birthday - ready in less than 10 minutes! Thanks for stopping by today - be sure to visit again tomorrow for more inspiration from the design team!
