Handmade Happy Birthday Cards - Flowers and Butterflies Outline Stickers 2

This is the 2nd card of the 4 cards I made using some old flowers and butterflies outline stickers I kept and recently found in my craft box. If you cannot find the same outline sticker, it doesn't matter. Any suitable flower decoration will do. Anyway, further below I have some links to some flower outline stickers if you don't have any.

In this design I used Matchmakers Textured Cardstock with white core size 6” x 6”.

For this design you will need:

  • Flowers outline sticker in silver (see links  further bellow for suggested outline stickers) 
  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • White card paper ( appx. 10 x 10 cm - large enough to fit the outline sticker on)
  • Sage green card paper (appx. 10 x 7 cm - large enough to fit the white card paper with outline sticker on)
  • Dark pink card paper (15 x 15cm)
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick)
  • gel pens - various colours 
  • Double sided tape 
  • "Happy Birthday" outline sticker
  • Craft corner punch (I have had mine for a very long time so you might not be able to purchase the same one, however I found couple of nice craft punches that would also work well with this design - see pictures below - link is added with the pictures)
Suggested flower outline stickers - see following links:
The outline flower stickers suggested above would work on the card, nonetheless, they are not similar to the one I used in this design. If you would like to make the card as similar to mine as possible and you do not have any outline stickers with roses, you can use a stamp instead. I found some nice ones on Hobbycraft online shop. See pics and links below.


Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take pink card paper (size 15 x 15cm) and using a double sided tape attach it to the front of the folded white card. Take white card paper (approx 10 x 10 cm) and attach a flower outline sticker to its centre. Tear off the edge of the white paper around the sticker to create an uneven edge (ensure that you tear off enough of the paper so that the resulting size of the white paper is smaller than that of the sage green card) . If you are using the stamp instead of the outline sticker, just stamp the image onto the white card using black ink. Colour in the flower using gel pens. Using double sided tape, attach the white paper with the outline sticker (or the stamped flower image) to the the green sage card (approx 10 x 7cm). Cut corners of the sage green card paper with the craft punch and attach the sage green card to the pink card (15 x 15 cm) using foam pads. Add “Happy Birthday ” outline sticker to the card.

Of course you can use other outline stickers, rather than "Happy Birthday", so "Happy Mothers Day", "Best Wishes", "Congratulations" are all equally suitable.

And here then is what the finished product looks like:
