Handmade Cards

Big, Bold, and Gold Happy Birthday

I’m sharing another typographic card today, featuring the Concord & 9th Double Cut Alphabet die set.

I went for a striking colour combination of black and white with gold for this card, and ended up making several of them.

I die cut the letters for ‘happy birthday’ from the MFT Black and White basics paper pack. I love this paper pack which features only black and white graphic prints – no need to ration the black and white papers from other packs now!

I also die cut the letters from gold metallic cardstock. I’ll use the gold letter outlines for this card and can keep the rest of the letters for another card.

I used a cover die for the background, so I could add detail to the white card base, without adding anymore colour. Any cover dies would work well for this.

I arranged the letters on the card, adhering them with liquid glue. I decided against adding any finishing touches, as I wanted the letters to be the focus.

I think these cards work great for masculine birthdays, with the big bold sentiment taking centre stage.

Below is another card I made, with a different slant on the same technique.
