There were so many ways I could go with this green, I found a lot of product, but I had to resist all the others and bring together some basic supplies that are easy to work with.

I’ve shot a video of the walk through and also an introduction to my card, enjoy!

It seems I tend to do birthday cards with these Color Coordinates, but that’s ok, you can never have enough!


I used the Carta Bella Celebration paper with the Simon Full Card size Hourglass die to make my flags. Then I added Kelly Purkey Metalic Green Sequins and Spring Mini Pearls to create the party theme.


For my sentiment I used the Birthday Balloons stamp set from Simon with Green Leaf ink.
