Quick & Easy Birthday Cards! | ACOT DT

*Originally written for A Cherry On Top Crafts*

Welcome back to the Cherry Blog! Have you ever had to throw together a card last minute? I know I have! For today’s project, I thought it would be helpful to offer some quick and easy (no mess!) designs that can get you out of a bind! These darling birthday cards feature the new Bella Blvd Chloe collection, but you could easily substitute the cats for florals, hearts, stars, etc. Whatever you have on hand will work, I promise! 

This first card is a layered grid and it is so much fun to put together! Layer two pieces of simple patterned papers then build your grid right on top! Each grid has a sweet little kitty face in it, then a simple sentiment from Doodlebug’s Simply Spring Chit-Chats. If you’re a card maker, Doodlebug Chit-Chats are the best for sentiments! 

This card is brilliant for using up scraps! I layered scraps all down the back of my card, then topped with white cardstock to make my sentiment POP! Of course, I had to add a curious kitten in amongst the florals. The florals are fussy cut from the Chloe collection and a little touch of Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops really gives it a finished look! 

This card is my absolute favorite of the bunch! For each grid, I layered patterned paper and then cardstock, then created a little scene using the cats and icons from the collection. I think this one turned out super cute! 

This last one was inspired by the cut-apart sheet with this super cute “You’re a Cool Cat” piece. It just begged to be on a card! Lots of layering with this one and including Doodlebug sentiment. I think this one is perfect for a super cool kiddo! 

I hope this sweet little card set inspires you to try some of these quick and easy designs on your next card! No mess, no frustration, but cute cards nonetheless! To see these cards come together, check out the process video below!
