Batch of Fandom Birthday Cards with Social Paper Plan

Saturday, December 30, 2023

I have been working on projects for upcoming releases during my time off from new things this past week, but I did make thirty-three birthday cards for my grandparents! It's something I like to do each year as a Christmas gift as they are blessed to have what they need so it's a gift that I know they'll use. Because I made so many, I like to keep things simple and not use foam adhesive so they will will go through the mail with one stamp.

The layout is adapted from the December 2023 Show Us Your Sheet LoadSketch from Call Me Crafty Al! I love using the layouts for a starting point and make them my own. I followed the sketch pretty closely, but added some details like stamping in between the patterned paper panels and added lots of images as the "half circle" and my sentiments are on a banner. In order to save some time to make these cards, I used lots of ephemera from Social Paper Plan (who also makes most of the stamps I used and patterned paper) and dies to build up my mini clusters on the card.

All of the birthday cards are completely different as I alternated the paper panels and used lots of different ephemera across the cards. But these are my favorite from the three different styles - one inspired by a Fantasyland, Adventureland and the movie Up! I know my grandparents would love anything I make, but I sure hope they like these when they open them (I'm writing this post ahead of time before I see them during my vacation). Let me know which one is your favorite in the comments!
