Let’s make a birthday card with fun & bright paper! We love spreading birthday wishes and I love how simple this card is to make. 

When you see my card it is gonna make you smile!  I am sharing 3 birthday cards with y’all today but the first one is absolutely my favorite — the Rainbow Glimmer Paper from Stampin’ Up!?! Well…you’ll want to make a birthday card with this too!

I have a great paper saving trick for you on my video too to make that beautiful designer paper last as long as possible. AND, I’ll show you how to make a birthday card with varying ink colors in easy to follow steps!


The colors I used to coordinate with the Rainbow Glimmer Paper were Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry both with the Stampin’ Write Markers and the cardstock.  I just love how all of the Stampin’ Up! products match making this birthday card SO EASY!  Remember do not use Stampin’ Blends (or any alcohol based marker) directly on your stamps; only use the Stampin’ Write Markers.
