Birthday Bonanza Card Ideas

Today’s post offers a bit of a sneak peek into the March 2020 Simple Suite Stampers Tutorial Bundle featuring the Birthday Bonanza Suite.

On the first Tuesday of each month, the Simple Suite Stampers design team publishes a tutorial bundle, including 8 tutorials, focusing on a particular theme. The focus this month is the Birthday Bonanza product suite. I have 5 Birthday Bonanza card ideas I’ll be sharing with you today! Four of them feature the Birthday Bonanza designer paper and the fifth one uses one of the printed cello bags that are part of the suite.

For this card, I followed the basic layout of design team member Sandra Hernandez.

As is often the case, I didn’t have all the same supplies on hand so I did have to tweak things just a bit. My favorite element on this card is the three circles with the cute little party animals. That’s the one part that is exactly the same on my card as on the original design. I had to change up the DSP and sentiment to work with what I had. Isn’t this a happy, cute card? Thanks Sandra!

FYI, I’ve got the three circles and sentiment piece popped up on dimensionals.

This next card was designed by Raquelle Batth.

I copied Raquelle’s card exactly except for the sentiment and images stamped around the sentiment. Such a cute simple card right?

This next card is my contribution to the March Simple Suite Stamper’s Tutorial Bundle.

It’s also a really simple birthday card that uses the Birthday Bonanza designer paper. Now, this paper is very playful and several of the patterns seem perfect for a child’s birthday card. I chose the ice cream cones for my card, in part because the images are smaller but also because it would make a card that might be suitable for just about anyone.

As you can probably see here, I’ve used dimensionals behind my frame and under a few of my balloons. The balloons were punched out using the Balloon Bouquet punch. I just love how the balloons help to add interest to the frame.

The bold Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I’ve used this stamp set for all of today’s cards.

I did also make a second version of this card that I showed in my Facebook live and someone in the live pointed out that it would make a perfect masculine birthday card. I hadn’t thought of that but I definitely agree. Here’s the card I showed in the Facebook live:
