Pretty Little Studio Birthday Hugs!

Do you ever feel a little stuck when you’re creating – needing a little inspiration? The Pretty Little Studio Design Team brings you Pinterest Inspired projects once a week. Here’s the photo I got to work with. Isn’t it beautiful? I was immediately struck by all those little tassels against the cream background. The rainbow of colors inspired me to create a birthday themed card with lots of colors and a banner of course!   I went straight for the brightest paper collection available from Pretty Little Studio. It’s called “Birthday Cake”. Have you seen this set? If the colors don’t get you going, maybe the names of them will!! LOL!! I started with a clean “Short Cake” graph paper background, and added a panel of “Coconut Creme” scallops. Are you getting hungry yet? 

The Michelle Mini Die Cut makes the perfect focal point for our birthday card. I used “Spice Cake” confetti paper as a background for the die cut. It just looks like a party doesn’t it?

To make it a little more feminine for a birthday girl I added a gold banner and pretty bow topped with some paper roses. I hot glue the roses so they stay set with no chance of them coming loose.

I stamped “hugs” on a Forever Note Flag Strip – these are already die cut and come in lots of great colors perfect to match any collection you choose. 
I hope our Pinterest inspired posts help you dream up some beautiful creations of your own!  With all the elements coordinated to work perfectly together you just can’t go wrong!
