Quick & easy birthday - same but different

Do you have favourite go-to layouts that you use lots? Today I'm sharing 3 quick & easy cards using one of my favourite layouts. They include some of my favourite & most used core products too - Happy birthday Thinlits die, Stitched Shapes dies, & Banner Triple punch. Each card has a different look thanks to the colours, patterns & accessories.

This layout provides a great way to use all the paper we tend to hoard (yup) & will help you get a stack of cards made quickly. First up is my favourite - a dotty creation using the Eastern Palace Specialty paper pack.

I just love the unexpected colour combination - dapper denim, wild wasabi, lemon lime twist, & very vanilla. The repetition of the circle elements is fun too. who doesn't love a circle?

Next up is this soft, pretty, floral card featuring a print from the Delightful Daisy paper pack and wisteria wonder, pink pirouette, flirty flamingo, & white colour combination.

For this last card, I flipped the layout into a vertical card & centred the banner & circle elements.

No paper on this one, I got inky, brayering a pool party ombre background, (embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder - another favourite) & a text background (Happy Birthday, Gorgeous) on the banner. I also added a soft, vellum scallop circle behind the circle.

I hope these encourage you to try some with your favourite papers. Here's a final look at all three cards together for you to pin for future inspiration.
