Lots of Happy Birthday Wishes with Kelly

Hi Folks! As soon as I saw the new In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways from the latest release, I knew I wanted to use them all on the same card! But how to fit them? I thought stringing them up like banners might work, so I went to work cutting out a bunch of words. 

It was a little difficult reading all the words cut from different patterned papers when they were just against the white card base, so I cut a second banner and layered it behind. Now they are easier to read, and a little more colorful and festive. Go big, right?

They are loosely strung with hemp cord across the top of the card. I like how they dangle and move when you handle the card. I also dangled a curlicue piece from Goldie Trim Cutaways and a small fiber.

The "happy" is also from the latest release (In a Word, Happy Coordinating Cutaways) and completes the "happy birthday" sentiment. The long tail at the beginning of "happy" became very useful, as I was able to attach it to the card by knotting the hemp around it.  

While I was cutting each word from patterned paper, I figured I might as well cut all the other words as long as I was running it through the machine...

and then it was easy to make a few more cards!

This way they will be much easier to let go : )

Ahh, happy colors!

Lots of happy birthday wishes here! And once I figured out the first card, the rest were so quick to assemble. 

Sure hope you are having fun with these handy birthday words if you happen to have them already. And if not, you can look at them here!

Thanks so much for looking!
