Mixed Media 1st Birthday Card for ScrapBerry's


Welcome to my creative space!

I have a very special card to share with you today. Our little granddaughter is only 6 months old, but I just had to pull out ScrapBerry's oh so adorable My Little Star Collection to created a First Birthday card for her. The way she's growing, that birthday will be here before I know it!

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques 
This adorable little bunny pushing her doll stroller is fussy cut from the My Little Star Growing Up Tags/Cards page. I used 3D Zots to pop her up off the background. The sweet cluster next to her is created with ScrapBerry's Cherry Blossoms. I tucked in the darling polymer banner along with resin flowers and bits of bling from the Curls for Wedding Set.

I've added a bit of mixed media texture to the background with stenciled molding paste, bits of cheese cloth, and prills scattered around the cluster. A little dry brushed gesso softens things nicely.

This card with a number 1 candle and the birthday sentiment worked perfectly. To add a bit of bling, I placed ScrapBerry's Kid's Fun Epoxy Brads into two of the balloons and adhered a resin flower to the middle one.

Does someone special in your life have a birthday coming up (or down the road)? I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's products and create a one of a kind card for them.
