I mean, just look at this adorable Birthday Chorus Line!  All those precious little people lined up in a row to sing their birthday wishes make my heart happy. 

TIP: Slimline cards measure 8 1/2" x 3 1/2", making them perfect for a long image like this one cut from Hooray 1.  For easy fussy cutting, cut a straight line along the bottom of the image and loosely trim around the sides and top.  Then back with foam tape or your dimensional of choice to really make the image pop off the page.

Spectrum Lady Bug Red and Caribbean Blue cardstock add vibrant color to the card base.  

TIP: Mat patterned papers on cardstock to help define individual layers.  

TIP: Die cut a circle from Hooray 3 and place it behind the singers.  This helps the black and white image to stand out from the patterned papers behind it.

TIP: Mat the "Make a Wish" tag on cardstock and tuck into the flower cluster.  This adds a pop of color to the card design and it also echoes the birthday candles in the designer paper.

TIP: Mat a sticker element on cardstock and trim around it to give it more presence in the design.  You can also back it with foam tape.



 Finish the inside of the card with layers of designer paper and a matted sentiment panel.  The birthday donut sticker is the perfect finishing touch.

I hope I've shared some tips and tricks you can use with this darling collection!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
